Nuxeo Teams with TEMIS to Make You a Little More Web 3.0
Open source enterprise CMS provider Nuxeoannounced a new integration with TEMIS. TEMIS’ semantic content enrichment  tool Luxid can now be used to enrich contentstored in Nuxeo with domain-specific metadata. No, I didn’t just type a bunchof techno buzzwords. Well, I did, but I promise this is cool.

The Semantic Web

The semantic web or Web 3.0 is widely thought to be the nextstep inthe evolution of the Internet. At the highest level, semantic technology is about making content machine-friendly by providing enough contextual details to allow recognitionsimilar to that of humans.  Althoughthetechnology may be machine-focused, the benefit to humans istremendous.

If computers are able to understand the nuances in humanlanguage,they can help process the massive amount of unstructured contentbeinggenerated every moment of the day. They can help identify relatedcontent,find answers and augment details at a pace that is notpossible by humaneffort alone.

Luxid, Nuxeo

Nuxeo had support for semantic enhancement even before theTEMISpartnership via its Semantic Entities module. Semantic Entities is an integration of the Apache Stanbol project. Stabbol is an effortinitiated bythe European Interactive Knowledge Stack for extendingcontent managementsystems with semantic capabilities. The Nuxeo moduleextracts and analyzes thecontent of documents in its repository usingan external Stanbol server andDBpedia and then enhances the documentswith linked information.

Learning Opportunities

The newly announced integration means that Luxid can nowconnectnatively  to Nuxeo’s SemanticEntities module using web services. Onceconnected, Luxid extracts metadataabout the content such as topics,entities, facts, sentiments or categories. Nuxeothen uses theinformation to enrich search facets, recommend related content,link toenterprise knowledge bases, feed Business Intelligence dashboards or trigger business workflows -- without users lifting a finger.

One of the biggest challenges facing organizations that have implement enterprise CMS solutions is ensuring that content can be located,andthat usually not possible without employing tools such as taxonomy andmetadata.These tools, however, typically require significant humanintervention, whichisn’t something most users relish.Integrations of tools such as TEMIS canreduce the effort and increase thefindability of content simultaneously. See, Itold you it was cool.
