The Network of Content

The BBC has AN ENORMOUS amount of amazing content that can explain and contextualise the News. How do we connect and harness this?


How might we connect and structure our News content across workflows, repositories, and the internet, using the real world things that matter?

This project is an umbrella over our Linked Data projects, and provides a focus for semantic research and partnerships.

It kicked off in 2012, when we started connecting BBC News content with Linked Data.
