Industry Talk on Information Extraction for E-Commerce

Martin Rezk from Rakuten Tokyo/Paris presented today his recent work in collaboration with Simona Maggio, Bruno Charron, David Purcell, Hirate Yu and Béranger Dumont on how Rakuten and PriceMinister (e-commerce) extract and combine semantic information from product titles, descriptions, and images to maintain and enhance their ontologies, to improve the user selling experience, and to build fine-grained marketing campaigns. 

Martin's work nicely fits together with the work within the DWS group on product data integration.

Details about parts of the talk can be found in their ISWC 2016 industry track paper on Extracting Semantic Information for e-Commerce.
