Exploding Opportunities - on the Web, in Government, and now the Enterprise 

“Linked Data (or Linked Open Data) is an emerging set of concepts and technologies for combining and integrating data. This exciting branch of the semantic web is finding applications across government and industry and for a variety of applications from new web-based mashups and visualizations, to the pragmatic enterprise requirements for data extraction, integration and management. Linked data is a key component of both the UK and US government initiatives for greater transparency and citizen accountability.

Sessions at SemTech 2010 will explain Linked Data (and Linked open Data) technologies, and how you can start to use them yourself. Beyond the basics you'll learn about extending linked data into the enterprise, right down to the level of individual spreadsheets. You'll see how to use tools such as OpenCalais for extracting linkable data from documents and how the open source publishing tool Drupal offers linked data capabilities directly from the content management system. Examples of organizations exposing linked data include the New York Times and Data.gov. Technical issues such as include a standardized mapping language, schema mapping and data reconciliation, will also be discussed.

  • Microblogging
  • Social networks
  • Open Government
  • Content management
  • Publishing
