Andraz Tori from Zemanta visits AKSW

On 13th January, Andraz Tori visited Leipzig to speak to the AKSW group about Zemanta. He first briefed us about the history of Zemanta and it’s developers, who built an API that displays relevant tags, links and pictures from unstructured data/content. He not only discussed, in detail, the architecture but also the workflow behind Zemanta. He showed the online demo by using one of the AKSW blog posts, which did display relevant tags from Wikipedia, Google Maps, Twitter and YouTube as well as links to related articles. The meeting ended with an interesting conversation of the possible enhancements and integration of technologies between Andraz and the experts at AKSW. For example, users may be given the option to agree or disagree with the suggestions thus enriching blog posts with semantic search and thereby bringing more meaningful data to the forefront. We thank Andraz for visitng us and more importantly, we are happy that Zemanta will be working closely with the LOD2 project.
