Sketchnotes from Zoe Rose’s talk “Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon (hydrozoan edition)”


Zoe Rose

On Wednesday, July 24, 2013, information architect Zoe Rose will talk to us about what connects a movie star, an emperor, and a common freshwater invertebrate.

The connections between these and many other things can be found using an ontology. An ontology is a method of classification with more power and more flexibility than a taxonomy.

In this session we will examine the structure and use ontologies by making one.

WHEN: July 24th (midday (12pm))

WHERE: C209 (shared facilities, Wellcome Trust Genome Campus) If you are not based on Campus, please contact Francis Rowland and let him know that you’d like to attend.
