Venue: University College London, Wilkins Building, Gustave Tuck Lecture

Categorizing or classifying information effectively has always placed
demands on those professional staff qualified to deal with it. But at
today's exponential rates of growth, it is almost impossible to keep up.
Much has been written in recent years of the potential of semantic analysis
technology which extracts categories, concepts and context automatically.
But how well does this technology work and what are the issues involved?
In this seminar, organized by ISKO UK in cooperation with the School of
Library, Archives and Information Studies at UCL, we will hear from six
presenters, each of whom will provide their own experiences of what many
information professionals still regard as something of a 'black art'. They
include SmartLogic's Jeremy Bentley, Bill Porter of Expert System, Rob Lee
from Rattle Research, and Helen Lippell, Karen Loasby and Silver Oliver
representing various media organizations, among them the BBC.
This event is the fourth in ISKO UK's successful KOnnecting KOmmunities
series, and promises some revealing insights into a technology which we may
all find ourselves using in the not-too-distant future, whether we like it
