5. Semantic Information Extraction: From Data Bits to Knowledge Bytes

The Road Less Travelled From Data Bits to Knowledge Bytes

This fascinating blog post delves into semantic information extraction – the way semantic technology makes sense of disparate textual sources, enriching them with machine-readable links, references and relationships along the way. It discusses how semantic information extraction allows organizations to perform integrated search across all sorts of textual data, discover automatic relationships, see content recommendation, discover references to concepts and entities, and integrate disparate and seemingly unrelated sources.

Go back to this article to see how connecting, integrating and analyzing information with semantic technology is applicable to risk management, fraud detection, fact retrieval, connections investigating, keeping up with compliance standards, tracking consumer behavior and much more.

4. Weaving Data Into Texts: The Value of Semantic Annotation

Meaning Is in the Algorithms of the Reader

Our 4th most read article in 2017 was this amazing post about semantic annotation – the power of semantic technologies to link things, people, locations or organizations to context and references, in order to give users relevant content and organizations – a much-needed way for efficient documentation management. This post illustrates how semantic annotation gives textual sources those ‘side notes’ that machines can read in order to organize and serve content in an accurate and efficient way.
