The Semantic Web For the Sustainable Materials Lifecycle MaterialSource, an online platform focused on the sustainable materials lifecycle, will relaunch with a semantic web focus by year’s end. In development by ontoforce, the revamped site will initially cater to users in its native Belgium, but it expects to expand to include an international audience. The goal, says ontoforce co-founder and CEO Hans Constandt, who also is MaterialSource’s co-founder and CIO, is to “apply the whole philosophy of the semantic web to doing the work of connecting small providers” in the space. It wants to lower thresholds for these purveyors of products and materials for sustainable construction to get their data to their markets in an efficient and integrated way. His partners include ontoforce co-founder and COO Stephane Roelandt and co-founder and sales/marketing head Tom Vankemmel, as well as key developer Jaroslav Martasek. “We’re putting semantic metadata around information from those providers’ materials,” says Constandt.

Pictify : Le Pinterest du monde artistique Article extrait du Réseau canadien d’information sur le patrimoine (04/09/2012) Récemment, un nouveau site Web de réseautage social, Pictify, a fait son apparition – avis aux musées : ceci s’adresse à vous! Pictify se démarque par deux aspects : il est conçu expressément pour le contenu culturel et vise un auditoire aux intérêts plus artistiques. Ce site Web a des fonctions semblables à celles de Pinterest, un site Internet de médias sociaux en croissance rapide, en ce sens qu’il ressemble à un énorme album‑souvenir de photos, réparties en collections diverses. Grâce à ce tableau d’affichage virtuel, les artistes et les institutions culturelles peuvent afficher des œuvres fascinantes en ligne, permettant ainsi à d’autres utilisateurs de la communauté de formuler des commentaires et de publier des photos semblables.

Trapit - Realtime Search for the Realtime Web A few weeks ago, a small team from @WalmartLabs visited the offices of OneRiot in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. OneRiot has developed some pretty nifty technology that analyzes social media signals from popular networks like Twitter and Facebook to deliver ads that are relevant to consumers’ interests. As our teams debated the finer points of Big Data, Fast Data, and machine learning technologies, it became clear to us that we could find no better colleagues than the guys at OneRiot.

THINK - Overview Overview | People | Collaborators | Sponsors | Publications | Tools The THINK (Tactical Human Integration of Network Knowledge) project is a collaborative effort of Pearson’s Knowledge Technologies (PKT) division, Carnegie Mellon University’s Center for the Computational Analysis of Social and Organizational Systems (CASOS) and the MA&D Operation of Alion Science and Technology. The goal of the effort is to develop an integrated toolset that supports different but complementary analysis methods. The toolset addresses three inter-related aspects of human integration of networked knowledge: CMU’s tools for extracting and analyzing dynamic network structure; PKT’s tool for understanding and assessing the content of communication over a given network; and Alion’s tool for modeling and exploring network performance for given team structures, technologies and human cognitive behaviors.
