The Next Web of Linked Data

With hundreds of millions of active web sites on the web and millions of new web pages added every day, the knowledge contained on the internet far surpasses even the largest cache of big data. Today, many web developers still primarily publish web pages solely for human consumption. Researchers of the "semantic web" have spent years exploring options of making structured data available through web pages we publish every day. In 2010, Google, Yahoo!, Bing and Yandex joined forces to form schema.org, a collaborative that promotes common vocabularies and markup techniques that enable web developers to easily publish data for both human and machine consumption.
This talk will examine the history, techniques and technology around schema.org that will enable a smarter web -- not just for search, but also next-gen data tools and applications that will connect entities and facts from across the internet, all enabled by developers publishing data directly to the web.
