Conferences we are attending:

Taxonomy Bootcamp, London, 2016

“Taxonomies are key to our publishing of academic databases. We have data sets about the music and film industries, bringing together sales data for all artists from thirty countries, enabling researchers to quantify the cultural impact of music around the world … Taxonomies lie at the heart of data sets and have a strong relationship with metadata, giving meaning to data sets. Thus researchers who relied on 'opinion' for hundreds of years can now use 'big data' from authorised sources in their research … taxonomies, semantic indexing and cleansed metadata draw together the right information, to deliver excellence in research tools.
