From PoolParty team Helmut Nagy and Florian Kondert will give two talks:
Semantic search and metadata mapping based on thesauri by Florian Kondert
Semantic search is an often quoted technology which promises to improve search in enterprises and on the web. Let’s take a closer look at semantic search: How can you benefit from it and what has to be done to establish such an application? What role do thesauri play and how can different data sources be integrated with PoolParty to make them searchable in a “semantic way”?
Florian Kondert from the PoolParty team will give an overview of various search scenarios in his talk and will demonstrate how thesauri can help to realise semantic search engines.
SKOS thesaurus management and linked data by Helmut Nagy
Building and maintaining thesauri are complex and laborious tasks. PoolParty is a thesaurus management tool for the semantic web, which aims to ease the creation and maintenance of thesauri by utilizing linked open data (LOD), text-analysis and easy-to-use GUIs. PoolParty also supports the publication of linked data.
Helmut Nagy from the PoolParty team will explain how one can benefit from linked data and will demonstrate how thesauri can be managed collaboratively within a linked data environment.
