GTDTiddlyWiki - all your tasks are belong to you 

GTDTiddlyWiki - all your tasks are belong to you: "About GTD TiddlyWiki
GTD Tiddly Wiki is a GettingThingsDone adaptation by NathanBowers of JeremyRuston's Open Source TiddlyWiki. The purpose of GTD Tiddly Wiki is to give users a single repository for their GTD lists and support materials so they can create/edit lists, and then print directly to 3x5 cards for use with the HipsterPDA."

Semantx Life Sciences, Inc. 

Semantx Life Sciences, Inc.: "SemanTx software allows researchers and clinicians to ask a single question, using natural language in the vocabulary of their particular discipline, to identify matches within and across disparate information sources based on a query's underlying meaning, rather than the simple text-match techniques used by existing search products. The result? Breakthrough improvements in search precision and recall, in less time - accelerating the decision-making process about new compounds and treatments.
SemanTx's core product, the Semantic Knowledge Indexing Platform (SKIP), is an enterprise search platform licensed for use by leading life sciences and healthcare organizations."

Jarg Corporation 

Jarg Corporation: "Jarg Corporation helps software developers to fully exploit the new world of semantic applications.
We offer a powerful knowledge indexing platform and productivity tools to make semantic applications faster and more flexible to use.
We offer technology for Semantic Search, Information Filtering and Categorization that promises to bring its users the most accurate knowledge retrieval, with queries expressed as complete sentences, using the user's own professional vocabulary."

New Cornell study suggests that mental processing is continuous, not like a computer 

Cornell News: New mind model: "'For decades, the cognitive and neural sciences have treated mental processes as though they involved passing discrete packets of information in a strictly feed-forward fashion from one cognitive module to the next or in a string of individuated binary symbols -- like a digital computer,' said Spivey. 'More recently, however, a growing number of studies, such as ours, support dynamical-systems approaches to the mind. In this model, perception and cognition are mathematically described as a continuous trajectory through a high-dimensional mental space; the neural activation patterns flow back and forth to produce nonlinear, self-organized, emergent properties -- like a biological organism.'

The Semantic Blog 

webservices.xml.com: The Semantic Blog: "When the mainstream trade press first started writing about XML, one of the key benefits invariably cited was precise search. You don't hear much about that any more. It wasn't, and still isn't, the wrong idea, but XML-savvy search requires an investment in data preparation that virtually nobody was or is willing to make. There are isolated examples, of course. One of my favorites is the ability of Safari (the electronic reference library, not the browser) to search within code fragments. Here, for example, is a query that finds sections of books containing code fragments that illustrate the use of Perl's Net::LDAP module:
http://safari.oreilly.com/JVXSL.asp?x=1&srchText=%28CODE+NET::ldap%29
We'd love it if what we write ourselves -- in email, on weblogs -- could behave this way. But we'd hate to be saddled with the rigorous data preparation that the Safari production teams slog through. That's the Semantic Web dilemma in a nutshell. Where's the sweet spot? How can we marry spontaneity and structure? Recent trends in blogspace, plus emerging XML-savvy databases suggest a way forward. "

Structured Writing, Structured Search 

webservices.xml.com: Structured Writing, Structured Search: "
The theme of my talk last month at the Open Source Content Management conference (OSCOM) was: 'Everything you need to know about content management, you (should have) learned in grade school.' I spent a lot of time talking about why and how to use URIs and HTML document titles in principled ways. These two namespaces are metadata stores that we typically fail to manage, but that can deliver powerful benefits.
I should have moved more quickly through that material, though, because what I really wanted to highlight was the same idea as applied to the XHTML namespace. In The Semantic Blog I suggested that we could achieve much more with simple XHTML content than we currently do. Two months down the road, the picture's a bit clearer than it was. "

Jon Udell: All about screencasting 

Jon Udell: All about screencasting: "I've been getting a lot of email questions about screencasting recently, and I've found myself answering many of them with URLs that retrieve various collections of articles and blog postings I've written over the last year. I should probably write up a FAQ on the topic. Meanwhile, I thought it would be helpful to reorganize what I've already written. To that end, I've reviewed and refined the tags I've been using to collect screencasting-related items.
I'll use screencast for an item that is the 'home page' for a screencast -- that is, the blog entry that introduces and describes it. And I'll use the tag Screencasting for items that are about tools, techniques, and the medium. "

Malleable Mobile Music 

Malleable Mobile Music: "Summary
Malleable Mobile Music takes social dynamic and mobility as inputs to a streaming music re-mix engine. The work extends on simple peer-to-peer file sharing systems towards ad-hoc mobility and social computing. It extends music listening from a passive act to a proactive, participative activity. The system consists of a network based interactive music engine and a mobile rendering player. It serves as a platform for experiments on studying the sense of agency in collaborative creative process, and requirements for fostering musical satisfaction in remote collaboration. Urban mobility of communities of users create a 'social re-mix.'"

Sony lab tips 'emergent semantics' to make sense of Web 

EETimes.com - Sony lab tips 'emergent semantics' to make sense of Web: "As the World Wide Web Consortium hammers out specifications on how to recode the databases of the world so that natural-language queries can be intelligently answered online, Sony Corp. says it has found a better way.
Sony Computer Science Laboratory is positioning its 'emergent semantics' as a self-organizing alternative to the W3C's Semantic Web that does not require any recoding of the data currently available online. Based on successful experiments with communities of robots, emergent-semantic technology is built on the principles of human learning, representatives of the Sony lab said at an open house here last month."

Sony lab tips 'emergent semantics' to make sense of Web 

Year 2004 News Archive: November: "November 1, 2004: Sony lab tips 'emergent semantics' to make sense of Web. By Junko and Yoshida R. Colin Johnson. EE Times. 'Sony Computer Science Laboratory is positioning its 'emergent semantics' as a self-organizing alternative to the W3C's Semantic Web that does not require any recoding of the data currently available online. Based on successful experiments with communities of robots, emergent-semantic technology is built on the principles of human learning, representatives of the Sony lab said at an open house here last month. Much as these communities of 'agents' extract meaning (semantics) from the character of their interactions, emergent semantics extracts the meaning of Web documents from the manner in which people use them, the researchers said. Based on just-patented emergent-semantics principles for its robots, the Sony scheme harnesses the human communication and social interaction among peer-to-peer file sharers, database searchers and content creators to append the semantic dimension to the Web automatically, instead of depending on the owner of each piece of data to tag it. The latter methodology forms the basis of W3C's Semantic Web. Conceived by Sir Tim Berners-Lee, the inventor of the World Wide Web, the Semantic Web uses extended markup language to assign 'meaning' to elements of Web pages. A dedicated team of people at the World Wide Web Consortium (www.w3.org) are dutifully spinning out specs for database coding. At its open house, Sony argued that this is similar to attempting artificial intelligence by writing if-then statements about everything in the world -- the bane of traditional AI. ... In emergent semantics, a user's agent bootstraps the information and categorization of content, such as the classification of music in genres. Through interactions among agents trading 'favorite' sosongs, genres emerge that are common to sets of users. Such emergent semantics as self-organizing genres are automatically tagged onto the content as an extra layer of information rather than depending on people to do the tagging, [Peter] Hanappe said."
