Inxight explains that its software provides structure to unstructured data by “reading” text and extracting important entities, such as people, places and organizations. It also extracts facts and events involving these entities, such as travel events, purchase events and organizational relationships. In the combined solution, the companies say, Siderean’s Seamark Navigator then builds on this newly structured data, providing an intuitive, easy-to-use relational navigational interface that allows users to put multisource content in context to drive improved discovery, access and participation across the information flow.
Seamark Navigator uses the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and Web Ontology Language (OWL) standards developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The companies add that RDF and OWL are standards being driven and heavily adopted by the Department of Defense and other government agencies. They enable a standards-based approach to providing a 360-degree view about any concept, regardless of the format of the underlying information sources.
