DHUG 2015 Presentation: Leveraging Your Semantic Investment

Presented by Access Innovations President Jay Ven Eman on February 18, 2015.

What can you do with your taxonomy now that you have one? In this session we will solicit your plans, ideas, and the hopes you have for your taxonomies. We will not be evaluating or passing judgment on these ideas, but looking for ideas to share to better leverage your investment. How far can you push semantic enrichment? How many ways can they be used? Where can they be used? What processes and tools are needed? Our goal in this session is to gain a better understanding of your options for extending the value of your investment beyond your initial goal of building a world-class thesaurus.
