For our 30 January lecture… BBC Things - joining up the news with open data
Online news organisations are exploring how to describe and connect the content of their stories using tags. The BBC recently opened its tagging data up to the public, with the launch of BBC Things.
What benefits does this bring to journalism? Could we use open data to join up a story being told across the web? Join James Logan, Product Owner of the BBC Linked Data Platform, discussed these questions and more at this Friday lunchtime lecture.
