Data Day Texas 2022

Live Event | June 13, 2022

We are sponsors of Data Day Texas 2022, the largest independent data-centric event held within 1000 miles of Texas.

Our colleague Heather Hedden, Data and Knowledge Engineer at the Semantic Web Company, will host two sessions.

“Introduction to Taxonomies for Data Scientists” tutorial (2+ hours)

This tutorial/workshop teaches the fundamentals and best practices for creating quality taxonomies, whether for the enterprise or for specific knowledge bases in any industry. Emphasis is on serving users rather than on theory. Topics to be covered include: the appropriateness of different kinds of knowledge organization systems (taxonomies, thesauri, ontologies, etc.), standards, taxonomy concept creation and labeling, taxonomy relationship creation. The connection of taxonomies to ontologies and knowledge graphs will also be briefly discussed. There will be some interactive activities and hands-on exercises.

“The Future of Taxonomies – Linking Data to Knowledge” presentation

Taxonomies are no longer just for navigation or tagging documents. AI technologies, such as machine learning and NLP are now being used more in combination with taxonomies rather than merely in place of taxonomies. The results include applications of semantic search, personalization, recommendation, question-answering. Combining taxonomies with ontologies and linked instance data, supporting more powerful search and analytics across all kinds of data, structured and unstructured, and not just documents.

Be part of it on June 13, 2022, 5:30 PM – 7:30 PM CST!
