About the Conference

Whether your most pressing issues are strategic, tactical, or, more likely, a complex combination of both, you’ll benefit from this unique opportunity to explore how semantic solutions and open data are being embraced throughout companies across a diverse range of disciplines and business categories.

 Technical Talks and Practical Experience

The SemTechBiz agenda highlights some of the most compelling applications of semantics in use today across industry and commerce. The talks will outline the business reasons for selecting semantics, and then the technical methods by which key capabilities were deployed. Because these examples are shared from practical experience, you’ll take home valuable lessons that save time and money when you get started, and avoid the hard knocks that others have already come through.

  • Semantics for Smarter Cities
  • Semantics for Education
  • Semantic Content Management
  • Semantics for Big Enterprise Data
