Semantics in Social Media – John Breslin of DERI Explains

John Breslin

John Breslin is involved in semantic research at the largest single institute pursuing semantics; DERI at NUI Galway. In this interview John discusses a variety of current research and development projects that promise to expand the usefulness of semantics by making the information published in social networks more available and easier to cross-connect.

John discusses these topics in this interview:

- The release of Drupal 7, which contains facilities for including semantic tags automatically.

- The expanding use of SIOC in making data used in any one social network structure available for use in others.

- How efforts to expand the usefulness of microblogging platforms like Twitter can benefit from semantics.
