What Happened to the Semantic Web?

I believe the answer is: We happened :) [to paraphrase +John Kellden ]


But that is my poetic view, intuition and hope.

A more in-depth analysis is in the shared article.

+Kingsley Idehen explains it super clearly:

_As you can see, there is no question that the Web already has a population of HTML documents that include semantically-enriched islands of structured data. This new generation of documents creates a new Web dimension in which links are no longer seen solely as document addresses, but can function as unambiguous names for anything, while also enabling the construction of controlled natural language sentences for encoding and decoding information [data in context] -- comprehensible by both humans and machines (bots). _

Also there was a talk by Peter Mika I was looking to see the slides of for some time. It is called What Happened to the Semantic Web? +Jarno van Driel shared the slides from it:

Microsoft had been building a very large knowledge graph named Probase, which it appeared they had abandoned. It looks like it was revived. I think it gives Bing a chance to compete with Google for Q&A type searches

Structured Content Meets Taxonomy

The last couple of years, I've been working on some fascinating projects integrating standards-based taxonomies with structured content (primarily DITA XML). This free web session by +Andreas Blumauer and me discusses how to combine these two approaches. It's on June 7th. You'll learn about:
- Benefits and principles of granular structured content, and how to start preparing your own content for this new architecture.
- Best practices for linking structured content to standards-based taxonomies, and some pitfalls to avoid
- The underlying semantic architecture that you can work toward for a truly mature and scalable approach to linking content and data
- Key use cases that you can apply to your own organization

Schema.org version 3.2 released today.

See http://blog.schema.org for details of important progress in several areas including educational courses, fact-check reviews, and menus.

Also many proposals have been added to the http://pending.schema.org area for early-access use, evaluation and improvement. These include finance, from the FIBO community, geospatial terms, category codes and event series.

For the techies, the http://schema.org/docs/developers.html page also includes enhancements for those interested in obtaining machine readable descriptions of Schema terms.

See the http://schema.org/docs/releases.html page for fuller details.

Surviving the machine revolution: how to become the digital marketer of the future

Normally I don't tend to share a lot of marketing related resources (after all, I'm #ThatMarkupGuy) but after having seen +Jono Alderson's presentation at Holland's biggest Digital Marketing convention, Friends of Search, I couldn't resist sharing his slide deck.

During what probably was the most info packed 40 minute presentation I've seen in a very long time (delivered at a speed that shouldn't be humanly possible) he explained exceptionally wel how both on- and offline marketplaces are evolving at an exponentially increasing velocity.

A presentation that should be wake-up call for anybody that isn't already busy trying to adapt to the new global reality.

I'll even go as far as to say that if you've still got trouble coming to grips with how fast global markets are changing you should find out if Jono will be giving this presentation somewhere else. And if so, book yourself a ticket to go listen to him.

WordLift facilitates 5-star linked data with schema.org

Sometimes wonderful things happen real fast - In this particular case within a month after I spoke with +Teodora Petkova​​​​​ about the structured data of her site. Structured data which at that moment still could be improved a lot yet which was outside of her control as it's generated through the Wordpress plugin +WordLift​​​​​.

And so she pulled WordLift's +Andrea Volpini​​​​​ and +David Riccitelli​​​​​ into the conversation in hopes of getting a discussion going that would lead to improving WordLift's structured data output. A discussion that indeed took place, and WOW - did they act fast.

WordLift's latest update makes it move away from turning web pages into barrels of entities in favor of generating beautiful 5-star - schema.org powered - linked data graphs. And in case this update is representative of the speed they are able to act than their competition better be cautious because there's a lot more coming.

Curious to see what I'm making all this fuss about, have a look at this: https://goo.gl/LwNlZU - it 'mentions' an impressive amount of entities that have been extracted though NLP.
