The Semantic Web is Hugely Important to Tomorrow's Business - Here's Why

The Semantic Web is Hugely Important to Tomorrow's Business - Here's Why | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |
The "semantic Web" is hugely important to tomorrow's business. Do not underestimate its significance: It truly changes everything. Embrace it, or risk extinction. But what is it? And what does it mean for your business?
janlgordon's insight:

This post was written by David Amerland for Forbes and he hold nothing back - he says "Do not underestinate its signifigance: It truly changes everything. Embrace it or risk extinction.

Here are a few things that caught my attention:

Yes it's the latest buzzword, but let's take a look beyond that..........

It marks the transition into a new phase of the Web where we stop searching and start finding

we discover not just the information that matches the keywords we search for, but the information that we really wanted to find. Information directly related in context, not just in keywords.

New Products; New Services

The semantic Web is far more open, transparent and personalized.

It’s being transformed into a place where the same content means different things to different people

The Answer Lies in Hyperconnectivity

In order for us to become smarter, we somehow need to understand the meaning of information.

To do that we need to be able to forge connections in all this data, to see how each piece of knowledge relates to every other

In the semantic Web, we users provide the connections, through our social media activity.

The patterns that emerge, the sentiment in the interactions—comments, shares, tweets, Likes, etc.—allow a very precise, detailed picture to emerge.

The Bottom Line

The semantic Web is accelerating change across the board, challenging companies that move too slowly to adapt. Embrace it, or risk extinction.

The old rules no longer apply. If you want to be found, social is no longer an option.

Zoekmachines - en Google - voorop gaan de context van zoektermen steeds beter begrijpen, zodat gebruikers betere en op hun situatie (plek, voorkeuren) toegespitste resultaten krijgen. Omdat het daarbij om de zogeheten 'big data' draait, is onder meer het gebruik van Google+ belangrijk voor Google. 


Kort gezegd gaat het betekenen dat zoekwoord 'pizza' niet leidt naar allerhande recepten websites, maar naar de Italiaan om de hoek.

Demystifying the Data Dilemma

Demystifying the Data Dilemma | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |
janlgordon's insight:

This article was written by Andy Capaloff for Curatti - it clearly addresses the challenges that many businesses are having with their data.

Here's a snippet from this piece:

Andy Capaloff says:

You have to frame questions well and ask for exactly what you wanted, or you would either get no answer at all or worse, the one that you asked for.

So interrogating, and stepping back from that, gathering and compiling your data becomes a matter of knowing your processes in great detail.  You are asking a computer, remember.  It is no more capable of understanding nuance than was a brilliant former colleague.

Here is a special offer from Curatti-

We're looking for 2 to 4 small businesses to submit raw data and reports you are producing, that pertain to your sales funnel.

Andy will try to highlight the problem areas that need  addressing and perhaps pinpoint holes in the data.

He will give a free analysis that may be used as a case study, completely anonymous. This will will also help him hone in on exactly where your pain points are so he can write further posts on this topic to help you utilize this information in your business.

What Data Can’t Do - for one Thing, it Can't Measure Social Context

What Data Can’t Do - for one Thing, it Can't Measure Social Context | Curation, Social Business and Beyond |
Data can’t account for everything in our experience, nor serve as the only guide for our thinking, planning and decision-making.
janlgordon's insight:

This piece is written by DavidBrooks from the NY Times I selected it because it raises some important issues about the way we measure data. The author talks about the strengths and limitations of data analysis as we have known it and what our current challenges are today.

The author says:.

'The big novelty of this historic moment is that our lives are now mediated through data-collecting computers"    .

He goes on to say........

**In this world, data can be used to make sense of mind-bogglingly complex situations.

**Data can help compensate for our overconfidence in our own intuitions and can help reduce the extent to which our desires distort our perceptions.

"But there are many things big data does poorly. Let’s note a few in rapid-fire fashion"

Here's what caught my attention:

**Data struggles with context. Human decisions are not discrete events. They are embedded in sequences and contexts

**People are really good at telling stories that weave together multiple causes and multiple contexts.

**Data analysis is pretty bad at narrative and emergent thinking, and it cannot match the explanatory suppleness of even a mediocre novel.

**Data obscures values.

The author says:

I recently saw an academic book with the excellent title, “ ‘Raw Data’ Is an Oxymoron.”

**One of the points was that data is never raw; it’s always structured according to somebody’s predispositions and values.

**The end result looks disinterested, but, in reality, there are value choices all the way through, from construction to interpretation.


**This is not to argue that big data isn’t a great tool. It’s just that, like any tool, it’s good at some things and not at others
