Semantic Link and Internet Evolution

April 19th, 2012 · 2 Comments · General


Recently I had a couple of great opportunities to share my thoughts publicly, and I wanted to make sure readers here were aware of them.

The first was a special guest appearance on The Semantic Link, a program hosted by Paul Miller with regular panelists Peter Brown, Christine Connors, Eric Franzon, Eric Hoffer, Bernadette Hyland, and Andraz Tori. It was a lot of fun, and a great warm-up for the keynote I’ll be delivering on “Scale, Structure, and Semantics” at the upcoming Semantic Tech & Business Conference (SemTechBiz), which will take place in San Francisco in June.

The second was a live interview on Internet Evolution, hosted by Mary Jander and Nicole Ferraro. They clearly did their homework, scouring my blog posts and web commentary for everything controversial I’d ever said — and then some! If that’s enough to pique your interest, then I encourage you to listen to the recorded interview and read the chat transcript at Internet Evolution.

Happy to answer questions based on either of these sessions — comment away!

    any chance you would share that talk? I would like to know what you call a ‘rich set of relationships’. I also am very curious about the statement “Semantics emerge when we apply the right analytical techniques to a sufficient quality and quantity of data.” Are you subscribing to ideas of emergent semantics, as in the research of Karl Aberer and his group? Or are you referring to something else?

    Antonio, you can listen to the two talks I cited by using the links above. I don’t know if the SemTechBiz keynote in June will be streamed or recorded. If it is recorded, I’ll certainly share it here.

    As for emergent semantics, I mean something more along the lines of the discussion over the “unreasonable effectiveness of data“.
