Semantic technologies are already having a huge impact on the web—especially with the advent of Schema.org and the Facebook Open Graph—and are moving rapidly into the Fortune 500, with companies as diverse as Merck, Chevron, and the US Air Force taking advantage of them. However, there is very little well-curated material that helps those new to the space find their bearings and get started. Semantic University aims to solve this problem and, in doing so, increase the adoption rate of Semantic Web technologies.
“Users today are accustomed to going to the Web to learn about anything new, especially technology,” said Rob Gonzalez, Editor-in-Chief of Semantic University and Senior Product Manager of Cambridge Semantics. “So naturally when they hear about semantics they head right to Google. However, before Semantic University there didn’t exist a single source of educational material suitable to people new to the space. Existing sites have so much jargon that people quickly get discouraged. Moreover, there is almost no good material comparing semantic technologies to traditional databases or XML. We’re aiming to change that and make it easier for any person or business to get started more quickly.”
