International Summer School on Semantic Computing (SSSC), Berkeley 2011
Semantic Computing is a rapidly evolving research field that integrates representation, methods, and techniques from areas as diverse as multimedia, computational linguistics, semantic web, knowledge engineering, software engineering, with the goal of creating novel technologies and applications that connect intuitively formulated user intentions with the content and meaning of machine-represented data.
Already at its third edition, the International Summer School on Semantic Computing 2011 provides an introduction to this interdisciplinary field to industry and academic groups. A mix of young and well-established researchers and educators gave tutorials on cutting-edge results in the aforementioned areas, complemented by keynote talks by renowned experts and hands-on exercises that showcase the application of the most important technologies in real-world situations.
