SemanticWeb.com today is launching a new podcast series, "Case Study Radio," that focuses on stories of applications of Semantic Technologies. Our first episode, sponsored by Zepheira, features a conversation with Dr. Eric Miller.
During our 14 minute discussion, we briefly talk about "What is Linked Data," and then quickly move on to discuss the nature of Linked Data and the general business value to organizations that have taken Linked Data approaches. Dr. Miller mentions several high-profile, successful implementations, and in future episodes, we will take a deeper look at similar case studies.
Zepheira is a leading research, development and professional services organization with extensive experience building systems using Semantic Web and rich Web collaboration (also known as Web 2.0). They help organizations channel information online in flexible context in order to work with the varying audiences that characterize the global Web.
