Semantinet’s slogan, “Information into knowledge” aptly describes their work. Semantinet is building a giant information graph of people, places and concepts linked together by whichever relationships are detected from both structured and unstructured data sources on the web. It’s a simple thing to describe, but the implications are profound. This type of information technology is so much more powerful than a collection of articles that can be searched by keyword. What we have here resembles how we imagine information and memories are stored in our own minds, and its available to be used in your own project through the Semantinet Knowledge Graph API.

It shows the falling barrier to entry in the API world even in a the demanding academic area of natural language processing and semantic analysis.

It offers an interesting use case to demonstrate the relevance of the service: take a Twitter username and use tweets from this account to find content most relevant to the user’s interests.
