BBC Shares Semantic Web Tests

The BBC is working on prototypes and an API for a semantic web project and has invited users to test them for themselves.

Muddy Boots is the name given to the prototypes, software solutions which have been created to identify the main agents – whether they be individuals or organisations – in any given BBC news story.

The two prototypes and the API developed by the BBC and its external partners can be seen on the Journalism Labs blog and users can input the URL of a BBC article to test their success rates.

And the guys at Journalism Labs are keen to hear any thoughts and suggestions from users about them.
