W3C SW Case Study by Faviki: Semantic Tags

Posted in

W3C SW logoVuk Milicic has been invited to write a case study about Faviki and the idea behind semantic tags for the W3C Semantic Web Activity website.

The goal of W3C SW case studies is, primarily, to help the Web community at large understand and appreciate the advantages of possibly using Semantic Web technologies in real applications.

In the case study the benefits of using the semantic tags are shown and it is described how they are used in Faviki. The key idea of the case study is that the semantic tags, as an intersection point of Web 2.0 and the Semantic Web, have the potential to enable much faster evolution of the Web by providing a solid foundation from which the Semantic Web can grow soundly.

ReadWriteWeb, a popular blog about the Web technology, has started publishing its annual list of "10 Semantic Web Apps to Watch" last year. This year, our project Faviki -- created by Vuk Milicic -- made it to that list!

Faviki's idea of semantic bookmarking caught their eye back in May, when they wrote a very positive review, and now it is included in this list, which is considered to be a prediction of success in this brand new part of the market.

GOOD OLD AI at Web of Data Practicioner's Day 2008

Posted in

Jelena Jovanovic, Nikola Milikic, and Filip Radulovic attended the Web of Data Practitioners Days 2008, that took place last week in Vienna, Austria. It was intended to communicate the results of the past years' semantic systems activities to a broader audience, especially to practitioners from industry and academia. Its main objective was to show how semantic technologies can improve and enhance existing Web-based software systems and how the Web of Data will provide a completely new paradigm of managing globally interlinked information.

The event was organized by four major Austrian institutions, University of Vienna, Joanneum Research, Johannes Kepler University of Linz, and Semantic Technology Institute from Innsbruck.

Many experts gave talks about the subject, among them Yves Raimond,  Richard Cyganiak, Leo Saureman, Alan Dix, and others.

Also, blogosphere is embracing Synesketch: post about our project was published on the Information Aesthetics blog, a world's major weblog for data visualization and visual communication. The "Pointy Haired Dilbert" considered Synesketch one of the "5 Superb Visualizations of the Week".  It is also the subject of some Hungarian, Russian, French, and Dutch blogs.  Del.icio.us and Twitter talk about Synesketch too. Moreover, it is (currently, it changes often) a Google's first result for the following queries: "textual emotion", "textual emotion recognition", and "textual emotion visualization".
