Semantic technologies promise to change the landscape of the web and enhance the user experience. Like many evolving technologies, there remains a gap between theory and practice.

We’ll share our experience developing enterprise and consumer facing semantic search applications from three perspectives: Content and user experience, knowledge engineering and technology.

Speakers: Chris Smith (http://www.linkedin.com/in/smithchristopherc), Samir Batla (http://www.linkedin.com/in/batla) and Karl Muth.

Topic Breakouts:

Content and User Experience (Karl)
Challenges in content
The user perspective Do they “get it?” What do they “want”?

Knowledge Engineering (Batla)
Practical ontology and taxonomy development
Data quality and its impact

Technology (Chris)
What worked, what didn’t for our use cases.
Flexibility vs. Performance
The Annotation Problem
Inference - practical or necessary
