  • Why Media companies should be interested in the Semantic Web

    by Michael Dunn

    The goal could be to create efficiencies during content creation, to better understand content already being produced, to insure that content is properly discoverable or to be positioned to take advantage of new opportunities. Whatever the motivation, media companies need to understand what the structured content approaches provided by the Semantic Web have to offer and how it could change media production, consumption and monetization.

  • KASABI - New Data Platform of the Future

    by Leigh Dodds

    Kasabi is a new data platform that aims to support organisations in the publishing and monetization of data on the web. The benefits of ready access to high quality data sets to support the creation of innovative new web and mobile applications is well-documented, and there is growing demand from developers for new data sources.

    Kasabi provides an environment that leverages semantic web technology to provide a unique marketplace that supports the publishing, licensing, and re-use of datasets. Kasabi will provide a rich set of options for organisations wishing to explore new business models around data, as well as empowering the community to remix and share data in many different ways.

    This talk will review the features of the Kasabi application and the opportunities it presents for data publishers and consumers alike.
