In an automated process, those you follow on Twitter and the links included in their tweets, can essentially become the subject matter of your own daily online newspaper that you can create in less than 5 minutes. As social media generates real-time news, it can now interface with to not only publish this news onto a micro-site, it will also tweet it out to all of one's Twitter followers daily. Social Media Scientist Daily by Ron Callari Curation of existing Web content is being explored by a number of semantic technology companies today, like Adaptive Semantics that's been generating content for the Huffington Post (see previous post, "HuffPo & The 'Wisdom of Machines' Crack Open Semantic Web Portal").

This series on the semantic web started with an introduction in Part I.

The Semantic Web, Part V: Getting Ready

In Part II, I made the business case for going semantic. Part III focused on complementary technologies. In Part IV, I provided a case study of how one company is already successfully reaping the benefits of the semantic web. In this final post in the series, I’ll take a look at what organizations can do right now to get ready for the semantic web. Note that much hinges on type of organization. Start Playing While the semantic web is very much in its infancy (as are the technologies that will ultimately support it), it’s important to begin conceptualizing it. …uses RDF to describe the relationships people have to other people and the “things” around them. As mentioned previously in this series, Google Squared is another semantic tool that people can access immediately to get their arms around what is admittedly a pretty big paradigm shift.

The Semantic Web & THE POWER OF PULL » Introduction

The Problem On the Web today, we see millions of web sites, each of which presents web pages and documents. These are simply electronic versions of the old paper-based ways of doing things: writing checks, filing taxes, looking at menus, catalog pages, magazines, etc. When you search for something on Google, you get a list of web sites that may or may not have what you’re looking for, based on keywords found in the text. Integrate disparate data sources with Semantic Web technology. The core Semantic Web technology is RDF, a W3C standard that reduces all data to three-part statements known as triples.

Integrate disparate data sources with Semantic Web technology

If your data fits into the triple data model and is stored in one of the specialized databases known as triplestores, the advantages of Semantic Web technology are obvious. This doesn't mean, though, that the technology has nothing to offer you if your data is in more traditional formats such as relational databases and spreadsheets. Open source and commercial tools are available to convert data in these formats to triples, giving you an easy way to combine data from multiple sources using different formats.

The Semantic Web, Customer Service, and the Financial World

With regard to new technologies, the same continues to hold true: The technologies themselves might be new, but they are fundamentally addressing old problems. Many of today’s emerging technologies such as cloud computing, SaaS, MDM, and social networks are really attempts to deal with core business issues. These include: Cost Communication Collaboration Data integrity Access to data Network reliability Scale The eternal battle to do more with less And many, many others. Marrying ARML with Linked Data. First of all, since ARML (augmented reality markup language) is based on KML and KML uses „Placemarks“ (which all have corresponding identifiers) as basic entities, these could be identified quite easily via URIs within the W3C Resource Description Framework (RDF).

Marrying ARML with Linked Data

Another basic concept of KML is „Point“. Geo RDF provides properties like „geo:long“ or „geo:lat“ which express longitude and latitude of a POI and thus makes it possible to uniquely identify certain points on a map using RDF standards. Thus it is possible to map the geo conventions of ARML to the geo conventions of the Semantic Web which are mainly based on Geo RDF. As soon as a placemark has received a URI it is also possible to expose it as linked data and interlink it with repositories like Geonames, DBpedia or LinkedGeoData (which is based on Open Street Map) to generate Linked Geodata. ARML makes it possible to link / make a relation between a „Provider“ and a „Placemark“. Jakob Nielsen on Usability and Web Design. Why the Semantic Web Will Fail. Don't get too excited by the title.

Why the Semantic Web Will Fail

But I do want to share a few thoughts... It was running through my head just now, the work that we were doing here in Moncton to work on an e-learning cluster. Because I saw that 'cluster building' is still one of the major pillars of NRC's strategy, and I was wondering whether our work would ever be a part of that again. And I was thinking about some of the things that didn't go so well in our first few years. Some companies went under - a couple, before we even talked to them, another, after we were in a project with them. And they weren't interested. And I thought about where we're right today and where we might be wrong, and why. And I'm saying the semantic web won't work. But how do you explain that intuition? And I was thinking about the edgy things of Web 2.0, and where they're working, and more importantly, where they're beginning to show some cracks.

A few of key things today: - the rumour that Google is turning off the search API Not a chance. Semantic Weblogs. How does the emergence of the semantic web change the way we think about information architecture? : block, slab, pillar. Infochimps Twitter Data APIs Get A Refresh. New and updated APIs for Infochimps take some next steps toward expanding developers’ access to structured data and possibly influencing sentiment analytics.

Infochimps Twitter Data APIs Get A Refresh

One of the two new API calls has Infochimps’ IP-Census data mapping to MaxMind’s GeoLite commercial IP-geolocation database data. Infochimps says it returns census level demographics based on a given IP address’ zip code, which helps in use cases such as targeting Twitter users with online ads based on their demographic profiles or filtering users by demographics for research cases. MaxMind’s API for its GeoLite data isn’t restful, says Infochimps COO Joseph Kelly, while “our API, because it’s restful, means 99 percent of the population out there can use it….That’s one aspect to bringing that type of data into a broader audience by making it more easily accessible.”

He also thinks users would be unlikely to find the mix of census and geolocation data in such a comprehensive format. How Twitter could beat Google to the semantic web. Nick Bilton, design integration editor and user interface specialist at The New York Times and The Times Research & Development Lab, thinks he’s hit upon a business model for Twitter. Writing for O’Reilly Radar, Bilton says: “Twitter, potentially, has the ability to deliver unbelievably smart advertising; advertising that I actually want to see, and they have the ability to deliver search results far superior and more accurate to Google, putting Twitter in the running to beat Google in the latent quest to the semantic web.

Written by Alex Iskold and edited by Richard MacManus. John Markoff's recent article in NY Times has generated an interesting discussion about Web 3.0 being the long-promised Semantic Web. For instance, a short post on Fred Wilson's blog had a lot of lengthy comments attempting to define Web 1.0, Web 2.0 and Web 3.0. NUI web researcher shapes the future of semantic search - Irish Innovation News. A researcher based at NUI Galway’s Digital Enterprise Research Institute (DERI) picked up the ‘Best Paper’ award at the influential Web Rules and Reasoning Conference in Bressanone, Italy. Dr Axel Polleres’ work surrounds a standard query language for the web, entitled SPARQL1.1.

This language allows users to ask complex multi-faceted questions when searching the web. The awarded paper 'Redundancy Elimination on RDF Graphs in the Presence of Rules, Constraints, and Queries', emerged from a collaboration with an Austrian University, TU Vienna.
