30 results for metadata extraction

MAR 1st 2007

The other day I was thinking, wouldn't it be interesting to see a site come out that essentially acts as a broker or mirror of metadata from other sites? You could go to this site, enter a URL and have the metadata from that page presented to you in clean, crisp XML. It would be even better if this was turned into a Web service and the API was free for anyone to use. I would imagine there would be quite a bit of mashing potential!

SIOCSemantically-Interlinked Online Communities (SIOC for short) is a framework aimed at connecting online communities and discussions from blogs, forums, content management systems mailing lists, and anything else. In the current Web, communities such as forums and blogs are like islands - they contain valuable information but are not well connected or queryable. SIOC allows you to connect these sites, and enables the extraction of semantic information from unlimited discussion platforms.

11 months ago I posted a short entry that posed the question of whether the world needed a metadata extraction service. I stated that the service could quickly become the largest repository of metadata (in the form of named entites and facts) on the Web if it stored the resulting metadata from each request. Open Calais seems to me to be the "metadata extraction service" I had in mind; it's is a Web service that allows you to automatically annotate content and extract information like facts and named entities (people, places, and organizations, and much more) from unstructured text. If that weren't enough of a good thing, Open Calais returns the metadata in RDF.

Although the question of whether we need it still hasn't been answered, I believe this service could be a catalyst for change towards Semantic Web standards if it is integrated into (or used to create plugins for) the multitudes of open source blogs and other CMS software. Open Calais opens the door to the possibility of lowering the barrier enough for everyday users to publish semantic content.

A lot of you emailed me asking where to find more videos, so I'm delivering the goods. I've expanded the previous list from a paltry 17 to a remarkable 302, and I've included podcasts this time! There were so many videos I had to break them up into different categories for easier skimming. There are no duplicates, however I did place some videos into more than one category when I felt it was appropriate. This list is monstrous, enjoy.

SwoogleSwoogle describes itself as being the search engine for the Semantic Web. Swoogle crawls the web looking for RDF documents. At this time Swoogle offers the these services:

  • Search ontologies and instance data
  • Search terms (URIs that have been defined as classes and properties)
  • Provide metadata of Semantic Web documents
  • Support browsing the Semantic Web
  • Archive different versions of Semantic Web documents

Weekend Brain Dump of Ideas

Published 10 years ago by James Simmons

  • Semantic metadata for video and other multimedia?
  • Will a new platform away from the browser have huge success? (ala Joost)
  • How can video games benefit from what we're doing with the Semantic Web?
  • Is Wikipedia the best playground for natural language processors to test their ability?
  • Does the World Wide Web as we know it need to be replaced?
  • Is HTTP inadequate for the future of the Web where streaming and maintaining state are becoming increasingly important?
  • Are we entering another brutal browser war? Maybe this one will be different because we know the importance of compatability
  • Will RDF or RDF/a be adopted by mainstream Web developers to markup semantic metadata?
  • ...Or will something come along that's better suited and easier for beginners to pick-up
  • Are we making any progress as-is towards our goal, or do we need to look for a different approach?
  • Is the best course bottom-up (building the Semantic Web from the ground up by using semantic markup, microformats, RDF, etc) or is it top-down (using natural language processors to read the Web and make sense of it for us).
  • With the freedom to create any RDF vocabulary or any ontology for that matter, will the real power be in mapping my meaning to your meaning?

Two ways the Semantic Web may come to fruition are the top-down and bottom-up approaches. Using the bottom-up approach we would start from the bottom and work our way to the top by using a method like embedding RDF into Web documents to supply user agents with meta data. We are already seeing this type of action being taken by bloggers and other content creators. If we choose the top-down approach then we would start from the top and work our way down, using natural language processors to read existing Web documents and extract semantic metadata.

5 Problems of the Semantic Web

Published 10 years ago by James Simmons

I like to consider myself fair and balanced when speaking about most topics. To educate the uneducated and to balance things out a bit I have compiled a list of 5 problems we will likely run into when we reach the Semantic Web. Each problem is a side-effect of advances in technology, rushes to fill new niches, or the previous two plus the desire to make a quick dollar.

MetalinkMetalink was designed for describing the locations of large files that are multi-located (shared via many mirrors and with P2P) to increase usability, reliability, speed, and availability. If a server goes down during a download, download programs can automatically switch to another mirror. Or segments can be downloaded from different places at the same time, automatically, which can make downloads much faster.

For just about every area of research there exists documents online describing background information or techniques to accomplish a task in that domain of research. These documents are often referred to as white papers, provided their content is of technical or research orientation. The information held within white papers is essentially accessible by humans only because machines are not able to read and comprehend text in the same way humans can. If machines were able to read white papers and extract information in the same way humans can we would be able to store each fact and piece of knowledge from the documents. This method of indexing would facilitate much more detailed searches, allowing users to search by topic, theory, conclusion, methods, citations, references, etc.
