Tax Time And The IRS Is On Our Minds

by Jennifer Zaino Have you checked out the IRS Tax Map this year? If not, what better way to spend April 15 (aside from actually filing those returns, of course). The IRS Tax Map, as explained here, actually began as a project in 2002, as a prototype to address the business need for improved access…

Precision Medicine is Semantic Medicine

The PROOF (Prevention of Organ Failure) Centre at St. Paul’s Hospital, hosted by the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, is one of those leading-edge research organizations aiming to move us a little closer to the world of precision medicine, with the help of semantic technology. In the process, it also hopes to have a…

The Potential of Semantic Technology Part 2 – “The Big Deal”


Some of you here already know it – many others are still asking it though – “What is the Big Deal with Semantic Technology, we don’t get it.” Fair Enough. If we had to pick one thing that crystallizes the importance of what we’re doing and link it a problem that just about everyone in IT faces today chances are we could change industry perceptions and make some real progress.

Measuring Semantic Technology Adoption


Perhaps the best way to understand whether Semantic Technology has the potential to become an IT industry vertical is by measuring the demand for Semantic Technology Skills in the current job market. There is no way to predict at this point whether Semantic Technology will become associated with specific technologies (like Master Data Management) or will grow to become an integral part of all systems engineering…

Science & Semantic Technology


Science has always been dependent on Semantics; Semantics provide the structure for knowledge organization as well as providing the foundation for reasoning processes. Semantic Technology is poised to facilitate the next generation of Scientific Methodology and knowledge exploitation.

What is the Potential of Semantic Technology – Part 1


Asessing and exploiting "market potential" is complicated. Every new technology must pass through this process in order to achieve adoption. Semantic technology faces an even more difficult challenge given the pervasive nature of its potential. However, we can help accelerate this process by providing real world problem solving examples of how this potential can be harnessed (both technically and from the business perspective).

Intelligent Healthcare – Part 1


Data interoperability represents one of the most complex challenges facing the Healthcare industry today. The promise of improved efficiencies, quality and performance through information systems automation of Healthcare practices remains elusive despite decades of effort and billions of dollars invested. As more healthcare information systems are adopted, the expectations for data exchange and interoperability increase.
