What's the business case for using semantic technologies? That's one question I'd like to answer in 2009, and working with Robert Collins of the Boston Social Media Breakfast I hope we'll put together a social media breakfast that will seek to answer that question.
Bob and I have found some great speakers for the next Boston Social media Breakfast on the topic of the business case for semantic technologies.
Mike Spararo from Visible Technologies, whose company monitors social media, will talk about how the semantic social media monitoring industry help brands find relevant information on the web and triage opportunities within the enterprise using natural language processing.
Jim Lucchese, CEO of Echo Nest will describe how Echo Nest’s music platform reads content about music, listens to music, and learns music trends in order to provide a platform for developers to build their own businesses around the music industry using semantic technologies.
I think this is going to be a great morning, and will help to show how web 3.0 companies are already making a difference. The date and location of the event has not been finalized yet, and if you’d like to sponsor the event, Bob is always looking for more sponsors.
