The Semantic Technology and Business Conference (#SemTechBiz) will take place October 15-17 in New York City. In addition to presentations regarding Big Data, open government, and business, the highly anticipated conference will feature a number of presentations discussing the use of Semantic Technologies in the financial and publishing industries.

Two presentations to look forward to include:

Smart Financial Data: How Semantic Technology Can Help Big Data Become Smart Data
David Saul, Chief Scientist, State Street Bank and Alok Prasad, President, Cambridge Semantics will explain how the use of industry standards set by organizations such as the Enterprise Data Management Council (EDM), the Object Management Group (OMG) and their Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO) to describe data semantically has the ability to create an intelligent information fabric that overlays key data assets and links across the organization and the financial industry. Not only are semantic technologies a benefit to financial institutions, but they are also critically important to the end user – the business. We see the next step for semantic technologies as the development of end-user-oriented semantic tools that bring data from the information fabric into the hands of the business people thereby irrevocably linking the business to IT.

Modeling Ontologies for Media
Matthew Degel, SVP, Chief Architect, Viacom Media Networks will explore how Viacom has embarked on building an enterprise information model as a series of upper and domain ontologies, and is accessing heterogeneous data stores as SPARQL endpoints. This talk will address Viacom’s experiences and lessons learned to date, the value they’ve seen so far and their long term goals. Viacom is a global media content company, including leading brands such as MTV, Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, BET, and Paramount.
