TEDxBrera - Giovanni Tummarello - How and why, we're slowly getting the Web of Data

TEDxBrera - Giovanni Tummarello - How and why, we're slowly getting the Web of DataThe dream of automatically have data "meet each other" on the web, instead of just "people meet wall of texts" has now an age well comparable with that of the web itself. 15 years of research at the "speed of the web" and the target has been elusive. In this talk i'll try to give you a quick view of what happened, a subjetive view of just maybe why and hopefully a fair prediction of what will happen next and why.Born in Verona, Italy in 1976, i grew up in Ancona, with very interesting long periods abroad (US and Sweden).After studying and working on machine learning, neural networks and signal processing, i was captured by the dream known as Semantic Web and did a Ph.D on it (http://dbin.org) . Although this work attracted considerable EU funding, as many others i had to flee italian university to find proper research opportunities abroad. I very happily joined the Digital Enterprise Research Institute (http://deri.ie) where i was able to acquire funding and organically grow a team of students and researchers. In 2010 i accepted a shared position at the Fondazione Bruno Kessler, Trento Italy, a semi private research institution. Currently i lead a joint team between these institutes on the theme of data intensive infrastructures l andSemantic Web. Among our results are the http;//sindice.com Web of Data Search engine, the SIREn Semantic Information Retrieval Engine, and several others well known in the field. As i always had strong interested in research which can have practical impact and lead innovation, I am currently very active in bridging research to the enterprise via startups like SindiceTech (http://sindicetech) and the most recent SpazioDati (http://spaziodati.eu).About TEDxIn the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
