The Semantic Web Has Gone Mainstream! Wanna Bet?
    Tuesday March 13, 2012 5:00pm - 6:00pm @ Hilton Austin Downtown (Room 616AB) (500 E 4th St, Austin, TX 78701)
    In 2005, I started learning about the so-called Semantic Web. It wasn’t till 2008, the same year I started my PhD that I finally understood what the Semantic Web was really about. At the time, I made a $1000 bet with 3 college buddies that the Semantic Web would be mainstream by the time I finished my PhD. I know I’m going to win! In this presentation, I will explain what the Semantic Web is and show you why it is already mainstream. The Semantic Web is enabling better web search, saving IT companies millions of dollars a year, helping researchers share data, discover new drugs... and this is just the beginning. If you have heard about the Semantic Web but never cared to spend time understanding what it is or if you are a skeptic and want to challenge me… this presentation is for you.
