Structured Dynamics Unveiling New Initiative at SemTech 2009
CORALVILLE, IA, June 7, 2009 -- Michael Bergman, CEO of Structured Dynamics LLC, will be unveiling a new initiative at the 2009 Semantic Technology Conference, June 14th - 18th, at the Fairmont Hotel, in San Jose, California. He will do so during his talk on, "BKN: Building Communities through Knowledge, and Knowledge Through Communities," on Tuesday, June 16, during the 11:45 AM - 12:45 PM morning session.
BKN - the Bibliographic Knowledge Network - is a major,
two-year, NSF-funded project jointly sponsored by the
University of California, Berkeley, Harvard University,
Stanford University, and the American Institute of
Mathematics, with broad private sector and community support.
Though initially nucleating around mathematics and statistics, each node in the network is a Web site or dataset distribution hub dedicated to a specific topic or field of knowledge. The project itself is developing a suite of tools and infrastructure based on semantic technologies for professionals, students or researchers to form new communities, and - with a single-click - to share and leverage expertise.
Besides presenting the BKN efforts for this first time,
Bergman will demo and unveil software for an innovative and
open Web services framework for collaboration. The software
is a semantic Web and linked data RDF framework for content
