If you’ve ever been involved in building an ontology it’s likely you’ve come away from the process with a few battle scars. Projects to develop a common vocabulary in an organization are time consuming and political because it’s difficult to get everyone to agree on a single consistent term for each concept. And while we all agree it’s good to have a consistent language, pointing to a specific business benefit that makes your CFO smile is hard.

A triple is a relationship construct that consists of 3 parts; a subject, a predicate and an object. In semantics, triples are an atomic form of intelligence that can be used to describe basically everything in the world around us. In our everyday world we think of subjects and objects as nouns and predicates as a way to express the relationship between subjects and objects.

In today’s business environment, unstructured information has become one of the most valuable resources in an organization and its rate of growth is staggering. The need to extract information from internal and external sources and integrate it into existing systems for use in key business decisions is critical to maintaining a competitive advantage. The Semantic Web was supposed to help us solve this problem. All information would be available, required facts would be a click away and intelligent agents would locate things. The reality; the world is disillusioned. The volume, velocity and variety of data flowing into organizations is out of control, the quality of public information is suspect, and the context in which that information was created is seldom obvious.

As medical technology evolves and medical care improves, life expectancy rises. In 2012, the overall life expectancy in the United States was 79.8, up from 77.9 in 2007. Individuals over the age of 65 who spend more on health care services than their younger counterparts will comprise one-fifth of the population by 2050. Each year one in three individuals over the age of seventy-five will experience a fall. In four out of ten incidents the result will lead to hospitalization, a long period of immobilization and recovery, surgery or in some cases death. As the population ages, this problem becomes more acute. And more expensive.
