    ATHENS, Ga. and LONDON, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Semagix, a leading
 semantic platform provider, today announced that Dr. Amit Sheth, Chief
 Technical Officer, will speak at two sessions at the KMWorld & Intranets 2004
 Conferences and Exposition in Santa Clara, CA. The Conferences will be held
 October 26-28 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.
     In the session entitled "From Search and Integration to Analytics," Dr.
 Sheth will present his vision for maximizing business benefits from semantic-
 driven technologies. Sheth will highlight key attributes of best-in-class
 semantic technologies, discuss the successes and shortcomings of current
 approaches, and forecast how companies will leverage semantics to transform
 industry processes and improve competitive standing. Sheth will share case
 studies from a global bank and a government agency. The session will be held
 on Tuesday, October 26, at 4:15 PDT.
     In a separate session, Dr. Sheth will participate in an industry panel
 entitled "Get Ready for the Semantic Web!" Dr. Sheth will present his vision
 for achieving the Semantic Web and for realizing productivity, efficiency, and
 effectiveness gains by using semantics to transform raw data into Smart Data.
 Other session presenters include executives from TopQuadrant, NASA, the U.S.
 Navy, and Loomia. After opening remarks, panelists will take questions from
 session attendees. The session will be held on Tuesday October 26, from 10:15
 A.M. to 12:00 P.M. PDT.
     "Very few companies will be able to achieve the potential of the Semantic
 Web," says Dr. Amit Sheth. "It's not enough to access data: It's whether
 technologies interpret and package information as Smart Data that gives them
 their competitive advantage. These presentations will enable industry buyers
 to understand what capabilities they need to create Smart Data and realize
 optimal value from their information assets."
