Updated: Just wanted to update everyone that the meeting has been changed to the 29th. Same venue and times.
Just wanted to drop a note that I’ll be giving a presentation on Semantic Mashups at the next Chicago Semantic Web User Group meeting in July. Here is the description of the talk:
This month the talk will be given by one of our organizers, Griffin Caprio, on Semantic Mashups.
A mashup is a web page or application that combines data or functionality from two or more external sources to create a new service. Semantic mashups take this a step further by utilizing semantic web technologies to create a richer experience. Using RDF, SPARQL and URIs, mashups can evolve past the simple reuse of data and into the discovery of new knowledge.
In this talk, we’ll be presenting sports statistic semantic mashup examples and explaining the underlying techniques and technologies that make them possible.
Griffin is a startup oriented entrepreneur with substantial experience in all phases of IT governance, product development and software engineering. Focusing on using technology to solve real problems and reducing friction of how technology affects everyday life, his company, 1530 Technologies, builds well engineered products for real world problems.
We are also scheduling some time for people to meet and talk.
Food and drinks will be provided, however it would be appreciated if you can chip in $5 to help cover our costs.
If you want to come, please RSVP using the links above. That will help us get a idea about food & drinks as well as take care of the building security.
