Helen gives a brief introduction to taxonomies and goes on to show how they are integral to successful knowledge modelling projects. She will draw on examples from her own experience, and will show how choosing the right tool for each job is a core skill for technology professionals.

The role of taxonomies in the semantic landscape
Helen has been an independent information professional for over a decade. In a nutshell, she helps organisations sort out their messy content and data. She designs and implements taxonomies, ontologies and semantic models, to help companies fully exploit the value of their stuff. She has worked for clients including the BBC, Metropolitan Police and Pearson. She is also the chair of Europe's largest dedicated taxonomy conference, Taxonomy Boot Camp London, which takes place in October every year. When she's not doing all that she's a keen quizzer who's appeared on shows including Only Connect and Mastermind.
