As a lean start-up seeking to bring the $50 Billion celebrity endorsement market to social media, Ad.ly had hit a wall. Where to find and programmatically access in-depth profiles and brand-association data on thousands of celebrities?

Engineering lead Chris Testa, set about exploring Linked Data. Within weeks, he'd put Freebase to work in a scalable solution, and began creating a robust celebrity affinity graph.

Learn how Chris is putting Linked Data to work to drive business results -- optimizing brand matches for popular influencers on Facebook, Twitter and more.

Learn:

* Tips & tricks for using Linked Data with social networks like Facebook and Twitter.
* That you can get surprisingly far with the Semantic Web without needing a cross Ph.D. in Philosophy and Computer Science.
* How to use Freebase and its Acre cloud infrastructure to run a data workflow that your non-technical team can use to maintain a high-quality data set.

    • HOW HOLLYWOOD LEARNEDTO LOVE THE SEMANTIC WEB Lauren Conrad 1.7 Million Twitter Followers
    • A SEEMINGLY SIMPLE PROCESS•  We match brands with celebrities that reach their target audiences on Twitter.
 •  We write endorsement copy that is authentic to the celeb and will resonate with followers.•  Through OAuth to celeb’s Twitter accounts, we distribute approved endorsements.•  We count the conversations the campaign inspires, plus clicks- though, retweets, etc. Mandy Moore 2.3 Million Twitter Followers

Paul Pierce 1.8 Million Followers
    • HOW CAN WE DO THIS?
    • My Profile Studied at Maryland Did a project @ MINDSWAP with Prof. Jim Hendler on early SPARQL implementation Did the IBM Extreme Blue Internship Program working on OLAP Went to Google / YouTube – not much culture of SemTech Never deployed semantic technologies until… Disclaimer:   I  was  a  skep0c   Ad.ly: •  Had a pressing business need •  Had limited resources •  Had limited funds
    • FREEBASE SATIATED MY SKEPTIC http://www.freebase.com/view/en/kim_kardashian /en/kim_kardashian
    • WHY LINKED DATA IS WORKING Tera-sized datasets are now available for real world concepts. Celebrities are well-annotated. Lots of industry interest: •  Google buys Freebase, dataset grows •  Linked Data explodes •  Facebook’s OpenGraph embeds RDFa everywhere •  Facebook’s Graph API brings graph datasets to the masses w/ REST+JSON Great data & technology licensing terms for business. •  Freebase Acre is a great way to prototype This just wasn’t true 6 years ago.

    • FEEDBACK QUEUE
    • Summary •  You don’t need a cross PhD in Computer Science and Philosophy to use SemTech today for visual augmentation and business model properties •  Linking datasets benefit from human intervention, but tools like the Reconciliation Queue makes this task easier & scalable •  This 5 step process sets you up to do long term advanced Semantic Analysis with Reasoning, Machine Learning, and so much more
