"Smart Content: The Importance of Semantics in Publishing"
The way we organize our information is shifting from the book-centric table of contents or bibliographic citations to a more dynamic approach that directs us to content that may never have been initially intended, or previously encountered.
Smart content is content that is equipped with structured data that allows it to soar across domains, user groups, profiles, and knowledge maps to reach readers in non-linear ways. Through the guidance of taxonomies and the exploitation of classifications, smart content no longer waits for the wisdom of the reader, but seeks the most appropriate reader for its content.
This presentation explores how semantics and reliable metadata act as agents to broker such relationships.
