This webinar presents results of joint research at Aalto University and University of Helsinki (HELDIG), Semantic Computing Research Group (SeCo), on building an open national Semantic Web infrastructure with applications for Digital Humanities. In particular, the “Sampo model” and series of Sampo portals<https://seco.cs.aalto.fi/applications/sampo/> have been created that have had millions of users on the Web. The seminar presents the key elements of the infrastructure and ten latest Sampo portals, five of which are already online, and five under development in ongoing research projects.
