Other good news: Roughly 80% (my guess) of the audience at this morning’s keynotes raised their hands when asked if they had not only heard about the term Semantic Web, but were also familiar with its concepts – not surprising probably for those interested in the I-SEMANTICS track, but good to get this feedback from the I-KNOW and I-MEDIA attendees. The Semantic breakthrough is nigh!
The challenge was called Triplification challenge as it was centred around Triplify and initiated by the Triplify Team. But what is Triplify? SÃ¶ren Auer explains it in 12 seconds:
