  * Attend and discuss with us at the public conference call on 19
    p.m. CET (see agenda below)
  * Comment on the roadmap directly
  * Join the Linked Data for Language Technology Group
    <> and
    stay up to date

  * Write us an email with feedback to

    Excerpt from the roadmap

Full document: available here 
Summary slides: available here 

Content is growing at an impressive, exponential rate. Exabytes of new 
data are created every single day. In fact, data has been recently 
referred to as the “oil” of the new economy, where the new economy is 
understood as “a new way of organizing and managing economic activity 
based on the new opportunities that the Internet provided for businesses” .

Content analytics, i.e. the ability to process and generate insights 
from existing content, plays and will continue to play a crucial role 
for enterprises and organizations that seek to generate value from data, 
e.g. in order to inform decision and policy making.

As corroborated by many analysts, substantial investments in technology, 
partnerships and research are required to reach an ecosystem consisting 
of many players and technological solutions that provide the necessary 
infrastructure, expertise and human resources required to make sure that 
organizations can effectively deploy content analytics solutions at 
large scale in order to generate relevant insights that support policy 
and decision making, or even to define completely new business models in 
a data-driven economy.

Assuming that such investments need to be and will be made, this 
roadmap explores the role that linked data and semantic technologies can 
and will play in the field of content analytics and will generate a set 
of recommendations for organizations, funders and researchers on which 
technologies to invest as a basis to prioritize their investment in R&D 
as well as on optimizing their mid- and long-term strategies and roadmaps.

    Conference Call on 19th of February 3 p.m. CET

Connection details:
Summary slides: available here 


 1. Introduction to the LIDER Roadmap (Philipp Cimiano, 10 minutes)
 2. Discussion of Global Customer Engagement Use Cases (All, 10 minutes)
 3. Discussion of Public Sector and Civil Society Use Cases (All, 10
 4. Discussion of Linked Data Life Cycle and Linguistic Linked Data
    Value Chain (All, 10 minutes)
 5. General Discussion on further use cases, items in the roadmap etc.
    (20 minutes)

In addition, the call will briefly discuss progress of meta-share linked 
data metadata model.

The call is open to the public, no LD4LT group participation is 
required. Dial-in information 
<> is 
available. Please spread this information widely. No knowledge about 
linguistic linked data is required. We especially are interested in 
feedback from potential users of linguistic linked data.

    About the LIDER Project


The project’s mission is to provide the basis for the creation of a 
Linguistic Linked Data cloud that can support content analytics tasks of 
unstructured multilingual cross-media content. By achieving this goal, 
LIDER will impact on the ease and efficiency with which Linguistic 
Linked Data will be exploited in content analytics processes.

We aim at providing an ecosystem for the establishment of a new Linked 
Open Data (LOD) based ecosystem of free, interlinked, and semantically 
interoperable language resources (corpora, dictionaries, lexical and 
syntactic metadata, etc.) and media resources (image, video, etc. 
metadata) that will allow for free and open exploitation of such 
resources in multilingual, cross-media content analytics across the EU 
and beyond, with specific use cases in industries related to social 
media, financial services, localization, and other multimedia content 
providers and consumers.

    Take a personal interview to include your voice into the roadmap


The EU project LIDER has been tasked by the European Commission to put 
together a roadmap for future R&D funding in multilingual industries 
such as content and knowledge localization, multilingual terminology and 
taxonomy management, cross-border business intelligence, etc. As a 
leading supplier of solutions in one or more of these industries, we 
would need your input for this roadmap. We would like to conduct a short 
interview with you to establish your views on current and developing R&D 
efforts in multilingual and semantic technologies that will likely play 
an increasing role in these industries, such as Linked Data and related 
standards for web-based, multilingual data processing. The interview 
will cover the below 5 questions and will not take more than 30 minutes. 
Please let us know on a suitable time and date.
