The Knowledge Hub and Linked Data in Local Government

The Knowledge Hub and Linked Data in Local Government

This is a presentation I did for the International Society for Knowledge Organization (ISKO-UK) for their conference on 14th September 2010 on the topic “The Future of Knowledge Organization on the Web”.

The presentation covers the issues faced by users who need to connect and join-up online conversations and information from multiple networks and websites in order to gain domain specific insight and knowledge. Conversations are becoming increasingly disaggregated; useful data is disconnected and lacks context. The Knowledge Hub connects and semantically links multiple information sources to deliver a personalised user experience for supporting improvement and innovation in UK public services.

The Knowledge Hub is a LG Improvement and Development project that will be launched in February 2011.  If you are interested in knowing more, or participating in some way in the delivery of this ground-breaking initiative, you may want consider joining the Knowledge Hub Community of Practice.
