"Find a needle in a Tweetstack" – Industry efforts related to Twarql

September 28, 2010

Datasift, in the same space as HootSuite and Tweetronics, is attempting to make this process of sifting through realtime data easier for companies.”

In our Triplification Challenge Winner entry at I-SEMANTICS 2010, we showed how Twarql uses information extraction, SPARQL and DBpedia to help users manage streams of information from Twitter. We demonstrated Twarql in a brand tracking scenario, following tweets that mentioned the (then new) Apple I-Pad, gathering information about user locations, sentiment and even automatically detected competitors (aided by background knowledge from DBpedia).

You can get an overview of Twarql in our presentation or the article from I-SEMANTICS 2010.

We would love to see companies implementing such powerful capabilities! Any takers? 🙂
