WebMediaBrands Announces Keynote Speakers For Semantic Technology & Business Conference, October 15-17 In New York City

WebMediaBrands Inc., (Nasdaq:WEBM) today announced that research experts Christopher Welty and David Weinberger will deliver the keynote addresses at Semantic Technology & Business Conference (#SemTechBiz), October 15-17 in New York City.

Weinberger, Senior Researcher at Harvard Berkman Center for Internet & Society will explore the networking of knowledge in the science and education fields during his presentation, The Restructuring of Knowledge. IBM Research Scientist, Welty, a core member of the team that developed Jeopardy computer champion, Watson, will address attendees on the evolving role of semantic technology. These presentations serve as unique opportunities to hear from the most entrepreneurial and forward-thinking minds in semantic technology.

“The business applications for semantic technology are powerful and strategic – from search engines like Apple’s Siri and Microsoft’s Bing, to faster and more flexible publishing platforms, like the BBC’s 2012 Olympics web site,” says Tony Shaw, Program Chair of the conference. “The New York conference will explain how semantic technologies work, and introduce many exciting new applications for financial services, health care, drug development, and publishing. If you’re new to semantics, you’ll discover a whole world of possibilities. And if you haven’t attended Semantic Technology & Business Conference for a couple of years, you’ll be amazed to see how far the applications have come in that time.”

Co-presented by  SemanticWeb.com, this year's conference has been designed to provide attendees with case studies, innovative panels, and tutorials through which they can garner practical advice, hands-on guidance, and breakthrough approaches to solving business problems. Additional keynote speakers include First Rain Inc. Chief Operating Officer YY Lee and CornellNYC Tech Professor Deborah Estrin.

Topics to be addressed include:

  • New York- The Digital City of the Future
  • Semantics at Tribune Company
  • Using Semantics to Deter Insider Trading
  • Simplifying Data Access for Competitive Advantage
  • Open, Mobile, Participatory Health
  • The Future of Using Knowledge in Healthcare
  • Big Data, Fast Data, and Complex Data- Covering It All With Semantics

Semantic Technology & Business Conference brings together today's industry thought leaders and practitioners to explore the challenges and opportunities impacting the finance, publishing, healthcare, and technology industries.
