Knowledge sharing and networking at the cross-section of research and business


SEMANTiCS conference is the leading European conference on Semantic Technologies and AI. Researchers, industry experts and business leaders can develop a thorough understanding of trends and application scenarios in the fields of Machine Learning, Data Science, Linked Data and Natural Language Processing.  The 16th edition will be hosted this year in Amsterdam.

About the conference

The aspect I enjoy the most about this conference is the fact that it is tied to industry and you can meet so many different people that work in different areas and that wouldn’t happen normally at an academic conference… it’s the fact that the use cases people talk about and have to do with are very real.

The SEMANTiCS conference offers a good mix of academic and industry participants, making it a great place for exchanging ideas and views on different topics. Its Job Fair offers industries the possibility to contact people with very interesting profiles.

The SEMANTiCS Conference is a really great place to come and look for inspiration, implementation, partners, for ideas and for business models.

The level of conversation, the level of expectation of the participants and the level of sophistication of what they’re presenting is really astounding.

How to Hybrid - a Guide for your Hybrid Participation

​Although we all have experience with online conferences, managing the hybrid situation is a bit more challenging for all parties involved.  Let’s prepare a little bit to guarantee a smooth and safe experience onsite and online.

Why are semantic technologies essential for your content strategy?

Content is inherently diverse, written for and understandable only by a specific audience, often multilingual, scattered across silos and different systems, and regularly ambiguous and therefore difficult to understand. Even humans, who are actually experts at understanding natural language, regularly get lost in Babylonian language confusion.
