Silk is a web-based platform that allows people and content creators to provide their content in a more structured manner on the web.
While the traditional approach around structured content has been based on applying purely engineering-driven solutions such as machine learning, Silk brings users a user-friendly experience when they’re creating and consuming content.
Users browsing a Silk-powered site will be able to choose the data they want and to view and arrange it in ways that make sense to them. Silk is at the forefront of the “Web 3.0″ trend that helps users manage the explosion of information that is generated digitally.
Silk was founded by Salar al Khafaji and Lon Boonen and is based in Amsterdam. Atomico has co-invested with several angel investors, and also New Enterprise Associates
