Allocating its resources in such a way as to give optimal service requires efficient planning in the short and medium term. But to ensure that budgets continue to be used effectively in the future, the planning process needs to take into account changes in technology and techniques that may become available over the longer term.nMonitoring innovations that are being made today, so as to anticipate their likely impact in the future is called “horizon scanning”, and it?s an ideal application of semantic web technologies:nnThis session will look at the need for horizon scanning in large organizations, and how semantic web technologies can be used to meet this need. It will draw on the work by the NHS to provide many examples and illustrations, in particular looking at how ontologies, RDFa and Linked Data can provide the glue that binds the semantic toolkit together.
