The most famous industries of New York City – finance, media, and law – are data-driven. “Linked Data” promises to ramp up the horsepower of that data, by making it accessible in ways that are nearer to how we think than how we have been computing. When you no longer have to wrestle with where data is stored and in what format, developers can more quickly produce new information. When your data can network as you can, creating and following pointers to related data, you can fulfill risk, audit, and compliance requirements as the secondary activity they were meant to be. When the nuances of your data are apparent, you can enhance services and drive revenues. This talk will expand on the vision of Semantic Web as a must-have item in the business toolkit.

Krasnow Waterman is sought after for work and advice in big data environments, new tech start-ups, and all manner of issues relating to implementing law and policy through technology as well as establishing and interpreting law and policy for technology.
