A Thomson Reuters initiative designed to make content interoperable on the Web

A free API that anyone can use

An easy way to automatically metatag the people, places, facts and events in your content

The market for tagged content is here Semantic apps are being built by some of today’s hottest start-ups Metadata is the de-facto ‘lingua franca’ of the content ecosystem Publishers seek a simple way to make their content available ‘Web-wide’
