The inference problem needs a triple solution

On: September 03, 2015, by: Ann Kelly

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.

The Promise of the Semantic Web, Truth or Fiction?

On: August 21, 2015, by: Ann Kelly

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.

Proactive Healthcare with Content Intelligence

On: July 31, 2015, by: Ann Kelly

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.

Metadata Extraction and Classification; Ontology or Statistically Derived?

On: July 02, 2015, by: Ann Kelly

Let’s face it, if you’re like most organizations you have more data than you can manage and the amount of data flowing into your systems is increasing at a rate faster than you can handle. You’ve most likely implemented a content management system with the confidence that your problems are solved, another item checked off your list right? Yet as you begin to organize data, your folder structures become complex. With increased document volumes, accurate and precise manual tagging and classification of your content becomes a burden and is often done in a hurried and imprecise manner (or not at all) which means that not only is it difficult to find content, but the metadata that you depend on for proper information governance is missing.

Why Enterprise Search Doesn’t Work

On: May 23, 2015, by: Ann Kelly

Basic search works by examining the text in a group of documents and building an index of their contents. Then a user comes along and queries that index using a particular word or phrase. Sounds as though it’ll do the job doesn’t it? But what if there are millions of documents which contain the same words, how do you know which document(s) have the information you’re looking for and of those, which are the most relevant? That’s where things get a bit tricky.

Information is the foundation of every organization. Those with accurate, reliable and timely information have an economic advantage over their competitors.
