"To the best of our knowledge, we are first to introduce the idea of a crawler focusing on semantic data"

Via +Emeka Okoye today, news that Yahoo has publicly released "Anthelion, a focused crawler for semantic annotations in Web pages that steers in the direction of HTML pages–which are annotated with markup languages like RDFa, Microformats, and Microdata–to GitHub."

The Athelion principles (Petar Ristoski, Peter Mika, Roi Blanco, and Robert Meusel) report that in early experiments "that in comparison to a pure breadth-first search selection strategy, the number of retrieved relevant pages can be increased by a factor of three. In comparison to a pure online classification-based selection, the improvements are about 26%."

Whither JSON-LD? AFAIK not supported at this time.

Any forward looking bank or financial institution of the 21st century need to look at themselves as a social network and also need to offer identity management service just like Facebook.

You can host your customers personal graphs with privacy controls, match their needs to offers from the banks and its third parties.

An interesting New Economy unicorns collaboration driven via:
- Software Interface:
- Artificial intelligence 
- Entity recognition 
- Linked data

This software interface creates a layer of convenience for a new and enriched user experience on top of services.

This is a pointer of things to come.

With this new feature, you can request a ride from a car service without ever needing to download an extra app or leave a conversation.

+Gideon Rosenblatt This is an excellent post. There is no doubt that complexities will arise from "delegating" more than routine "tasks" to machines and also being more reliant on machines than in our abilities. This is where the risk is for me. I agree with your point of view :)
As artificial intelligence evolves, our machines will act with a complexity that increasingly feels like nature.
