Though semantic technology has become much more common in and out of the IT world, it is still ones of those terms that can cause you to lose your audience very quickly. The Defense Department thought so too, so they created an explanation of semantic technology using a brief video to address ontologies, natural language processing, etc. Did I lose you again? Just watch this.

Government Computer News brought this interesting information to our attention in their article, “DOD video makes sense of semantic technology.”

Did that make sense to you? Do you understand it better? Or is it a typical government approach to complicating while trying to simplify?
