Things, not Strings
Entity-centric views on enterprise information and all kinds of data sources provide means to get a more meaningful picture about all sorts of business objects. This method of information processing is as relevant to customers, citizens, or patients as it is to knowledge workers like lawyers, doctors, or researchers. People actually do not search for documents, but rather for facts and other chunks of information to bundle them up to provide answers to concrete questions. Continue reading
In recent years, Nature has adopted linked data technologies on a broader scale. Andreas Blumauer was intrigued to discover more about the strategy and technologies behind. He had the opportunity to talk with Michele Pasin and Tony Hammond who are the architects of Nature’s data publishing portal.
The Simple Knowledge Organization System (SKOS) has become one of the ‘sweet spots’ in the linked data ecosystem in recent years. Especially when semantic web technologies are being adapted for the requirements of enterprises or public administration, SKOS has played a most central role to create knowledge graphs.
In this webinar, key people from the Semantic Web Company will describe why controlled vocabularies based on SKOS play a central role in a linked data strategy, and how SKOS can be enriched by ontologies and linked data to further improve semantic information management.
SKOS unfolds its potential at the intersection of three disciplines and their methods:
- library sciences: taxonomy and thesaurus management
- information sciences: knowledge engineering and ontology management
- computational linguistics: text mining and entity extraction
Linked Data based IT-architectures cover all three aspects and provide means for agile data, information, and knowledge management.
In this webinar, you will learn about the following questions and topics:
- How SKOS builds the foundation of enterprise knowledge graphs to be enriched by additional vocabularies and ontologies?
- How can knowledge graphs be used build the backbone of metadata services in organisations?
- How text mining can be used to create high-quality taxonomies and thesauri?
- How can knowledge graphs be used for enterprise information integration?
Based on PoolParty Semantic Suite, you will see several live demos of end-user applications based on linked data and of PoolParty’s latest release which provides outstanding facilities for professional linked data management, including taxonomy, thesaurus and ontology management.
