We are excited to share some great news! Tuva was recently shortlisted for the Vidi Competition, and we will have an opportunity to present our work at the European Semantic Web Conference in Crete, Greece later this summer!
So, what is the the Vidi Competition? The competition is the second stage of a three-stage competition (Veni, Vidi, Vici) called the LinkedUp Challenge, with the goal to “push forward the exploitation and adoption of public, open data available on the Web, in particular by educational organisations and institutions.”
For those that might be curious, “Veni, Vidi, Vici” is a Latin phrase from the times of the Julius Caesar’s conquest of the Roman world, and it translates to “I came, I saw, I conquered”.
