The Semantic Web: What is it and how can it be used in your organisation?

18 February @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm, Cardiff

Back in 2001 Tim Berners Lee painted a future of intelligent software agents that would head out on the World Wide Web and automatically book flights and hotels for our trips, update our medical records and give us a single, customised answer to a particular question without our having to search for information or pore through results.

Join lead discussants including: Iain Tweedale (Head of Online at BBC Wales) and Professor Tom Crick (Professor of Computer Science and Public Policy at Cardiff Metropolitan University) who will explain how their organisations are building a semantic web search capability and using it initially by opening their digital archives for use in education.

Join and get insight into

  • how organisations are linking their data together across separate systems and sites to become more efficient;
  • how you can unlock the unused power of your online data to create new business opportunities and better serve customers and users;
  • how Wales is in a unique position to take a lead in this space, creating a new digital DNA that will generate new types of internet business;
