Chicago Semantic Web Meetup

I know it’s little late notice, but I wanted to send out a note about tomorrows Chicago Semantic Web Meetup. Here’s the description:

This month the talk will be given by one of our members Marc Temkin.

Description
Data Mining “Alchemey” on free text in databases.

Text can be freed from non-semantic memo fields into useful data with the
help of skillful use of modern languages and frameworks. Marc Temkin will
give an overview of how he “freed” classical music data regarding composers
and artists from the human readable only to the machine comprehensible.

Speaker Bio
Marc Temkin teaches in the Interactive Arts & Media Department at Columbia
College, instructs professionals in C# and .NET at TechNexus, and has spoken at the Chicago Code Camp on data visualization using WPF and .NET. Marc has been an independent and contract programmer working for Argonne National Laboratory, Harris Bank, ACH integration projects with Chase, hospitals, banking units of non-profits and Network Chicago (PBS, WFMT/WTTW).

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’re interested in coming, please RSVP by today because I’ll need to send a list of names to security.
