Data Language started life at the BBC. Our founders were key members of the team that designed and built the original BBC Linked Data Platform for Dynamic Semantic Publishing in 2010. The extensive knowledge they gained in the practical application of linked data combined with their background in enterprise scale web architectures provided the springboard needed to launch a technical consultancy.
Data Language have continued to work with the BBC on a variety of projects. We have helped BBC News Labs explore the use of linked data and graph databases, helping them with their own Hack events, and presenting linked data APIs at Yahoo Hack Europe ,and Google SeedHack.
We have collaborated with the BBC and other national media organisations on a model for News Storylines, and we have worked with them on a Window on the Newsroom product suite that enables BBC news desks to explore and search online news, video and audio content through the semantic augmentation of media assets with open linked data.
This long term relationship is testament to the faith the BBC have in Data Language to deliver both expertise and value. Long term relationships are as important to us as they are to our clients. Our attitude and approach is to deliver quality and value on all our projects, and this is borne out in the ongoing work with the BBC. It gives us a good feeling when our customers come back for more.
Our BBC journey continues. We have just started a new project to help the BBC further develop the Window on the Newsroom and to help News Labs explore Conversational User Interaction. We are sure this won’t be the last!
