is a sole proprietorship company owned by Mark Watson created as a vehicle for developing and monetizing Natural Language Processing (NLP), Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Semantic Web technologies.

Traditional knowledge management tools relied on structured data often stored in relational databases. Adding new relations to this data would require changing the schemas used to store data which could negatively impact exisitng systems that used that data. Relationships between data in traditional systems was predefined by the structure/schema of stored data. With RDF and OWL based data modeling, relationships in data are explicitly defined in the data itself. Semantic data is inherently flexible and extensible: adding new data and relationships is less likely to break older systems that relied on the previous verisons of data.

A complementary technology for knowledge management is the automated processing of unstructured text data into semantic data using natural language processing (NLP) and statistical-base text analytics.

We will help you integrate semantic web and text analytics technologies into your organization by working with your staff in a mentoring role and also help as needed with initial development. All for reasonable consulting rates. Technologies:

Proposed roadmap for products

When working with semantic data I use the Sesame RDF data store,the Franz AllegroGraph RDF data store and the Stardog RDF data store with OWL reasoning support.

For NLP and text analytics I use a combination of my own software and also the open source projects Apache OpenNLP and the Stanford NLP projects.
