Researchers, industry experts and business leaders can develop a thorough understanding of trends and application scenarios in the fields of Machine Learning, Data Science, Linked Data and Natural Language Processing.  The 15th edition will be hosted this year in Karlsruhe (Germany).

About the conference

Semantics 2018 set the stage for the legal profession, what a great move! You could feel the pioneering spirit in all the presentations and discussions. Semantics and law are natural twins, so certainly more to come.
