DATAMI Demo: Using Apache Stanbol to Manage your Interactions on the Web

As described in a previous post on this blog, the goal of the DATAMI application is to use Apache Stanbol to semantically annotate the content of a user’s history of Web activities.

As the DATAMI website shows, we have been very busy developing the technical components holding the DATAMI application together, in order to be able to show a first demonstrator of the features of DATAMI. Of course, this is still far from the final product as we envisage it, but it shows the potential of the idea: background processes collecting and processing information about my online activities to provide me with a personal, semantic web history dashboard

All the data on which this demo relies have been collected using the datami-proxy running on my personal laptop. It is then transparently processed (in batch running every hour) through the stanbol enhancer services to identify entities in the texts of the websites I encountered, as well as additional information about these entities. All these data are kept in a semantic store, which is being directly queried by the javascript interface.
