Scope to Present “Metadata – Enhancing Discoverability and Search Precision” at Hot Spot stage at Frankfurt Book Fair 2013

Chennai, India, September 26, 2013 --( Scope e-Knowledge Center, a leading provider of content enhancement and knowledge services, will be presenting “Metadata – Enhancing Discoverability and Search Precision" at the Professional & Scientific Information (Hall 4.2) Hot Spot stage on October 10, 2013 from 11.30 am – 12 noon at the upcoming Frankfurt Book Fair. Rich Kobel, Vice President, Business Development will explore the challenges of creating accurate and consistent descriptive metadata to enhance knowledge discovery and facilitate reliable and relevant semantic enrichment.

Scope's presentation will provide insights on how metadata evolved as the publishing environment transitioned from the conventional publishing model to semantically enriched publishing models using technology platforms. With increased emphasis given to ‘power browsing’ of concepts versus traditional content in search environments, the key challenges of accuracy and relevancy are heightened by technology-enabled semantic enrichment, and the importance of descriptive metadata as a solution to these challenges will be discussed.

Tram Venkatraman, President of Scope, commented, “Scope has spent a lot of time examining some of the implementations of automated semantic enrichment solutions. We believe there is a need for more descriptive metadata, curated by subject matter experts, to achieve the end users’ expectations for discoverability and precision. Our presentation will illustrate this point.”
