UK Taxonomy Boot Camp London announces call for speakers - 18 Mar 2019

In its fourth year, Taxonomy Boot Camp London will showcase the very best insights and practices in taxonomy and related work. The event is now accepting contributions from taxonomy practitioners, technologists, researchers, developers, information architects, product managers and so on. Taxonomies are at the heart of the event, but they cover a vast array of topics around knowledge and information management. What makes this a great community is the desire to ‘sort out stuff’, whether it’s content, navigation, data or metadata.

Attendees have a wide spectrum of experience and knowledge; some are complete beginners who have been told by their boss to 'do a taxonomy', while others have years of experience of working hands-on with highly complex taxonomies and projects. For this reason, they will build a programme which caters for anyone who uses or manages taxonomies, ontologies, search applications and semantic data, and more.

Based on audience feedback from 2018 event, there is a great demand for presentations in the fields: taxonomies for absolute beginners - the theory, the reality and the best practices; enterprise search, including structured data, relevance engineering and day-to-day management; the ethical aspects of working with models and classifications; and knowledge graphs and blockchain - cutting through the hype to get to what’s useful.

To send their ideas, interested parties may visit https://secure.infotoday.com/forms/default.aspx?form=tbc-london. The deadline for submitting proposals is April 5, 2019.

US IEEE VIC Summit explores emerging technologies and recognises technology innovators at IEEE Honors Ceremony Gala - 18 Mar 2019

Technical professional organisation IEEE has announced the agenda, speakers, and opens registration for the 2019 IEEE Vision, Innovation, and Challenges Summit (IEEE VIC Summit) to be held on May 17, 2019, at the Marriott Marquis San Diego Marina. The IEEE VIC Summit convenes leading technology innovators, visionaries, and disruptors to share insights on emerging technologies and discuss their impacts on humanity's future.

The summit culminates with the IEEE Honors Ceremony Gala, which will be live streamed and recognises outstanding innovators for extraordinary achievements in electrical, electronics, communications, environmental, and safety technologies, computer science and engineering, engineering education, and the allied branches of engineering and the related arts and sciences. 2019 ceremony includes the first presentation of the IEEE Theodore W. Hissey Outstanding Young Professional Award, which was created to recognise up-and-coming technology leaders and highlight their specific work in advancing technology.

This year’s IEEE VIC Summit brings to light the important role of women in technology with a keynote presentation from Dr. Telle Whitney, ‘Our Time to Lead: Women and Men Creating Technology Together, and Defining Our Future.’ Dr. Whitney, a computer scientist, former CEO of The Anita Borg Institute, and an expert on diversity, will speak on the dream of inclusion in technology, discussing her own journey as a woman engineer and her efforts to create a global movement for women technologists. Other panel discussions will cover topics including smart networks and social innovations, future security risks posed by the Internet of Things and ethics in artificial intelligence. Master of Ceremonies Mike North brings a unique mix of engineering and artistic skills as MC of the IEEE VIC Summit.

IEEE rolls out the red carpet at the IEEE Honors Ceremony Gala, where the achievements of IEEE Life Fellow Kurt Petersen will be honoured with the IEEE Medal of Honor for his visionary contributions that led to the global growth of microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). The direction he provided for the field resulted in the tiny sensors, actuators, and other microelectronics that proliferate smart devices, healthcare tools, and automotive systems, enabling such innovations as autonomous driving, precision surgical techniques, and advanced smartphone applications.

This year’s recipient of The IEEE President’s Award, selected by the IEEE Board of Directors, is Katherine G. Johnson, whose mathematical calculations of orbital mechanics at NASA were critical to the success of the first and subsequent US human spaceflights.
