Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India, September 25, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Scope e-Knowledge Center (Scope), a leading provider of knowledge services and a Quatrro Global Services company, will be presenting on "The role of descriptive metadata & controlled vocabularies in improving semantic linkages" at the Professional & Scientific Information (Hall 4.2) Hot Spot stage on October 8, 2014 from 10.00 – 10.20 am at the upcoming Frankfurt Book Fair.

In the session, Rich Kobel, Vice President, Business Development, will explore challenges publishers face in improving the relevance of semantic linkages and how descriptive metadata coupled with controlled vocabularies, including ontologies and expert curation, can be the right solution.

Basic metadata is important for information retrieval, but accurate, validated and enhanced metadata is critical for better discovery and precision. In smart content discovery architecture, descriptive metadata helps to enhance the discoverability of content by providing interpretive information about the content, and semantic linkages connect related concepts. Fully automated technology solutions pose the risk of incorrect identification or even a complete miss of relevant content, homonyms and ambiguities arising from the context. Scope’s solution comprises technology and subject matter experts (SMEs) to work on complex content structures to ensure improved findability, expanded discovery, contextual accuracy and precision.

Tram Venkatraman, President of Scope, commented, “With ample experience in metadata and content enrichment, Scope has progressed tremendously in this space to produce high-value metadata to interlink various content types and connect related concepts. Scope’s session will provide insights on how semantic enrichment would help publishers, aggregators and other information providers.”

Scope welcomes prospective partners to visit booth # L83, Hall 4.2 to meet with its consultants to help determine your specific needs with respect to content and data services. Scope also invites attendees interested to organize a meeting to contact Vel at
