C4P Webinar - Semantics and Linked Open Data and GeoDeepDive
Date: Tuesday, Apr 29, 2014
WebEx, 4-5p ET
The Webinar time is 4-5p EDT. The time you see on the EarthCube site may be Mountain Time or your local time.
The topics for the next C4P Webinar are Semantics and Linked Open Data (Tom Narock, Marymount University) and GeoDeepDive (Shanan Peters).
A major goal of the webinars is to facilitate communication and interaction between domain scientists and cyber/computer scientists. See the full webinar schedule here.

Semantics and Linked Open Data (Tom Narock, Marymount University)
A wide spectrum of maturing methods and tools, collectively characterized as the Semantic Web, is helping to vastly improve the dissemination of scientific research. Creating semantic integration requires input from both domain and cyberinfrastructure scientists. The OceanLink project, an EarthCube Building Block, is demonstrating semantic technologies through the integration of ocean science data repositories, library holdings, conference abstracts, and funded research awards. We will present Semantic Web technologies, such as Linked Open Data, in the context of ocean science data discovery and integration.
GeoDeepDive (Shanan Peters, University of Wisconsin)
The goal of this EarthCube Building Block proposal is to leverage machine reading and learning approaches in order to access data and knowledge that are buried in the text, tables, and figures of published documents, sometimes called "dark data." To bring dark data to light, we are using the Hazy research group's machine reading system, DeepDive, to create GeoDeepDive and PaleoDeepDive. In this presentation Peters will give an overview of the current successes and challenges in this endeavor.
The format is 20 minutes per presenter, with two main parts: (a) a show-and-tell presentation of the science and the resource (b) discussion of the key informatics needs that the resource is facing. The intended audience for this webinar is professional paleogeoscientists and cyber/computer scientists.
