SKOS vs. OWL; the design decisions of Semaphore

on: September 26, 2016, by: Ann Kelly

In today’s enterprise, unstructured information has become one of the most valuable assets of the 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 successful business outcomes.

Yet without a mechanism to apply context and meaning to information, the enterprise cannot integrate it into their systems. Semaphore, Smartlogic’s semantic platform, has been carefully architected to address this problem.

The underlying design principles of Semaphore are a precise combination of W3C standards and semantic best practices built upon Resource Description Framework (RDF), SKOS and SKOS-XL, which allow organizations to unify all enterprise information into a single information source to identify relationships, explore opportunities and answer questions they could not answer before. Semaphore uses high precision NLP and other sophisticated techniques to produce precise, complete and consistent results.
