Between 19 – 24 of July, 2015 Cognitum took part in The Ninth International Conference on Advances in Semantic Processing in Nice, France. The whole conference was build from different tracks where participants were able to gain knowledge of the basics of semantic technologies as well as to hear about the advanced projects. Every year the conference gathers researchers and entrepreneurs from all over the world to exchange their knowledge and experience. This year Mr. Pawel Kaplanski – CTO of Cognitum, together with the researchers from Maria Curie Skłodowska University and University of Economics and Innovation presented an article “Semantic OLAP with FluentEditor and Ontorion Semantic Excel Toolchain”.
The main purpose of the paper was to present a toolchain for an ontology based knowledge management system. It consists of the ontology editor - Fluent Editor - and the distributed knowledge representation system - Ontorion. The researchers showed that semantic knowledge management framework can be built with the particular solution available on the market. They also presented OLAP - a powerful BI tool and its possible implementation in the R language. They showed that the modern approach to BI, called Big Data, is currently understood to face the problem of growing number of insights that are being produced by big data through automated forms of analysis. Semantic OLAP as well as its successor called ADA proves that the problem can be solved with support of semantic technologies.
ADA (Ask Data Anything), project that is developed by Cognitum, allows exploring data by using natural language directly, rather than by using CNL, therefore ADA can be classified as a tool that allows to explore data with natural language.
