Industrial Implementation of Semantic Technologies

About the Method

This ongoing research aims towards the industrial implementation of emerging semantic technologies. A current collaborative project with Raytheon has given the team an opportunity to work with a large batch of memorandum documents which needed to be electronically organized. By taking various information from each memorandum, such as author, subject,  and date, the documents could be organized in a custom ontology. Each piece of information was stored as a property of the memorandum and the ontology was formed.

The team decided to import the ontology into OntoWiki so that the end user could browse the ontology in a friendly environment. Each memorandum has its own page where relevant information is located. Currently, the wiki is being customized to fit Raytheon’s needs.
