Free Webinar:  Enhance Entity Extraction using an RDF Store

Expert System Franz logo  
Thursday, July 15 - 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM PDT


In the Enterprise, extracting key entities such as names, locations, dates, and industry specific terminology from text can empower organizations to not only improve keyword search but also open the door to enhanced reasoning capabilities previously unavailable. Expert System S.p.A. and Franz Inc. have paired their respective technologies to show how an advanced entity extractor and scalable RDF database can bring value to your project by unlocking previously unavailable knowledge from unstructured data.

Free Webinar: Enterprise Requirements for Graph Databases -
Your Best NoSQL Choices (As Presented at SemTech 2010)

Jans Aasman

10:00 AM Pacific, Thursday, August 5th


Initially Semantic Web databases were primarily used for analytics. Users would dump data in their RDF database and then perform interesting analytics with rules, reasoners, and query languages like SPARQL. Nowadays enterprises are starting to consider NoSQL database options such as RDF in their primary processes and they are rightfully worried about transactionality, recoverability, automatic backup, replication, automatic failover, concurrency, and more. Even more important, for many applications they need a steady stream of intermixed additions, updates, deletes and queries. This seminar will cover strategies to manage these issues, some discussion around NoSQL - RDF, and conclude with a proposal for measuring the dynamism of RDF databases.

IEEE 2010 Summer School on Semantic Computing, 7/25-31, Berkeley
 
Summer School Semantic Computing is a rapidly evolving research field that
integrates representation, methods, and techniques from areas as diverse as multimedia, computational linguistics, semantic web, knowledge engineering, software engineering, with the goal of creating novel technologies and applications that connect intuitively formulated user intentions with the content and meaning of machine-represented data. The IEEE Summer School on Semantic Computing provides an introduction to this interdisciplinary field to senior undergraduate and graduate students. Franz will be conducting a tutorial and delivering a keynote talk.

Mark Watson's New book

Written by Mark Watson, this new book is intended to be a practical guide for using RDF data in information processing, linked data, and semantic web applications using both the AllegroGraph 4.0 commercial product and the Sesame open source project. Thanks Mark!

YouTube: TCGA S3DB SPARQL endpoint testing with AllegroGraph
 
Gruff Graph View AllegroGraph 4.0 users at the University of Texas MDAnderson Cancer Center posted a demonstration of their work on YouTube. Thanks!

The RDF description of The Cancer Genome Atlas, as exported from the S3DB deployment where it was incubated is tested. The testing was performed by a third party tool, AllegroGraph, and consists of importing the S3DB RDF export, querying it using SPARQL and navigating the query results graphically.

VM appliance for AllegroGraph 4.0 for Windows and Mac
 
AllegroGraph Virtual Machine The latest release of AllegroGraph is 4.0.5, currently available
natively for 64-bit Linux. For Windows and Mac users, we provide a Virtual Machine appliance. It's not for benchmarking, but it is useful if that's the machinery you have handy. We're also seeing the VM come in handy in a class room environment - with Linux, AllegroGraph 4.0.5, Gruff, AGWebView, Eclipse (for Java and Jena examples), and Python installed as a bundle. (It's a large download, but worth the wait.)
