Inline Tagging Facilitating Linked Data

By |September 22nd, 2014|Access Insights, Featured|Comments Off on Inline Tagging Facilitating Linked Data

Access Innovations recently debuted Data Harmony Version 3.9 and, within its new features and fixes, is a sneakily clever module called Inline Tagging. On the surface, it does exactly what the name says; it allows the user to see in a piece of content, quickly and clearly, what concepts in the text got triggered and tagged by the software. It seems simple enough, a handy tool, but upon closer inspection, it really opens doors for the user.

Sometimes when you work in an industry or are affiliated with it, you start throwing around terminology and acronyms that not everyone may completely understand. I hope we don’t practice this behavior here at TaxoDiary on a regular basis, but I fear it may have happened on occasion.

The Semantic Web Goes Mainstream

By |May 16th, 2011|Access Insights, Featured, semantic|Comments Off on The Semantic Web Goes Mainstream

The recent MarkLogic User Conference was a watershed event for the publishers in attendance, many of whom are just beginning to strategize about the application of semantic technology to their content. After years of hearing “the Semantic Web is coming,” the message this time was that it’s no longer about “what” or “why,” but “how” publishers will leverage this technology. It has been 10 years since Tim Berners-Lee, Jim Hendler, and Ora Lassila announced the creation of the Semantic Web, so many of us were very excited to hear Jim Hendler’s update on current developments. Some key themes of his presentation were already covered in this article from August, 2010 in New Scientist: Google, Twitter, and Facebook Build the Semantic Web. With his trademark slogan, “A little semantics goes a long way,” Hendler added some further context, and described how these companies and others have tapped into social and commercial drivers to promote relatively simple approaches to solving the problem of getting content tagged, and thus increasing the ability for computers to understand the meaning of text across vast amounts of Web content.
