MeetUp – Semantics in the Financial Industry: The Financial Industry Business Ontology

  |   Events

Thank you everyone for joining us at our MeetUp yesterday! Great talk from Mike Bennett introducing the theory behind ontologies and how to present them to business stakeholders in a simple and clear way. It was also interesting to hear how FIBO got established and how they bring a bit more order to the financial industry.
It is great to see the group gaining more traction, for our next MeetUp we are planning to have Navino Evans from Histropedia to do a talk/demo of the Wikidata SPARQL endpoint, so come along and bring your friends!





To find out more about ontologies, RDF and Semantics you can watch Szymon Klarman’s speech from CDL 2016:

MeetUp – what connects graphs and linked data?

  |   Events

Another successful MeetUp completed! We wanted to thank everyone for attending. Great talks from Nigel Higgs and Jesús Barrasa. Nigel quickly explained that this MeetUp aims to bring together Graph database and Linked data professionals to spark new ideas and conversations. Jesús presented his work on how Explicit Semantics can be used in Graph Databases using Neo4j. This talk sparked a lot of interesting ideas and questions about merging these two technologies together, what would be the opportunities and threats of this approach.






To be apart of the conversation next time join our MeetUp group. Our next event is going to be on the 4th of October! Follow us on Twitter for more news on Connected Data
