Project Summary

Ontology as a Service (OAAS), an innovative ontology engineering approach that will enable optimal application of existing rich semantic metadata networks within and across industry.

The platform will extend the Metadata Research Center’s Helping Interdisciplinary Vocabulary Engineering (HIVE) technology, and will aid CVDI members in transforming workflows to extract knowledge from their data assets.

The research is of value specifically for partners such as GSK, Clarivate, as a service to science, and any CVDI industry partner managing data assets with semantic metadata structures.

The three chief goals of this work include: 1) Advancing ontology server registration and reducing vocabulary silos, 2) Improving multiple-ontology visualization to assist decision-driven applications, 3) Increasing intelligence about on the value and use of semantic ontologies daily operations (e.g. resource discovery to semantic driven data analytics).
