About Semantic Technology & Business Conference:
The first Semantic Technology Conference took place in the spring of 2005 at the Stanford Court Hotel in San Francisco, California. The initial conference was largely attended by academics that were looking to commercialize Semantic Technologies and a few early adopters and vendors.
In the past decade, the event has seen incredible growth and adoption of Semantic Technologies. Enterprise-grade tools and services continue to improve, standards activities have reached recommendation status, and there are more options for projects both small and large. Organizations have deployed Semantic Technologies into production environments, resulting in demonstrated value, new revenue, lower costs, mitigated risks, and innovative solutions to business problems.
Growing sectors and vertical markets include Financial Services, Healthcare/Life Sciences, Government, Energy, the Internet of Things, Publishing, Marketing, Advertising, Retail, and eCommerce. As the growth trajectory continues, SemTechBiz is the best place to participate in the conversation.
