Ontotext is happy to announce that it is a sponsor of OpenFest, Bulgaria’s biggest conference on free knowledge sharing and open source software, which will take place on the 3rd and 4th of November in Sofia.
The annual gathering of creators, fans and supporters of open source projects will take place at Sofia Tech Park, featuring lectures on good practices and exchange of knowledge.
Participants will explore and discuss projects and ideas that could improve society via open source technologies and open data and how technology can help education, social and art projects. Advanced technical talks, presentations and workshops are also part of OpenFest’s two-day program.
OpenFest – which has been taking place every year since its first edition back in 2003 – is organized by the Open Projects Foundation and is supported by many partners and sponsors.
Ontotext already has extensive experience in integrating open source tools and Linked Open Data (LOD) in its signature semantic graph database GraphDB. GraphDB enables its users to integrate their proprietary data with LOD in order to create a powerful Knowledge Graph. This, in turn, empowers them to discover additional meaning and new relationships across diverse data sets and unstructured data.
Working on EC research projects since 2001, Ontotext has also supported the development of some important open source software. One such example is RDF4J (formerly SESAME) – an RDF framework for Java, which started in On-To-Knowledge. Another example is the General Architecture for Text Engineering (GATE) – a NLP framework, developed in SEKT, TAO, MediaCampaign and PrestoSpace projects.
