Live Online Training: Meet The Ontotext Experts

June 3, 2017 3 mins. read Ivelina Nikolova

The idea behind the previous training-related blog posts – What Will You Learn & What is a Successful Semantic Technology PoC – was to introduce a more detailed look into the upcoming training Designing a Semantic Technology Proof-of-Concept. This blog post examines the role of Ontotext’s leading experts in the training.

Individual Consultation

When we were conceptualizing the idea of the training, in the beginning, we went over a few setup scenarios. All of them recognized the need of dedicated individual time as essential to providing targeted guidance and feedback in the process of developing a small but effective Proof-of-Concept. For the upcoming training, we will offer 15 individual consultations to the first people to request them.

The individual consultation takes about an hour. It is a chance for the participants to go over their project’s specific objectives and scope and discuss Semantic Technology implementation as well as data challenges with domain experts.

Get a chance to address your project’s specific requirement with our experts in the domains of Life Science, Healthcare, Publishing & Media, Natural Language Processing, Text Analysis, Ontology and Vocabulary Management and others.
