Concurrent 4B: Making Semantics Work
Bill Kasdorf, Apex
Publishers are increasingly realizing the power and potential of semantics to take their content to the next level and to make it more discoverable, more dynamic, more useful and usable. This session will focus on three concrete advances that promise to make the benefits of semantics a practical reality: a proposal for the creation of a Taxonomy Commons, a sort of multidisciplinary CrossRef for Taxonomies that would help make semantic taxonomies more accessible and consistent; a Smart Content initiative that utilizes a clinical taxonomy to semantically enrich content at a very granular level, facilitating search and discovery as well as integration of content within the professional workflow.
