New Direction

Something I've become more interested in recently is the consumer end use of semantic technology. In particular, personal semantic databases have gotten my attention as general purpose stores for structured information. Looking into this further I had a pretty great conversation with Dominic here at Winslow about work he's anticipating on ontology construction and linking. It's really pushed me to think about what kinds of interfaces and views one would have in a desktop semantic database. Furthermore he directed me towards Li Ding and Jie Bao who he says are doing/have done work in this area, suggesting I do a literature review before undertaking any kind of project on my own.
