Knowledge and Information Management in Life Science

We are a leading technology provider of services for knowledge management infrastructure and text analysis in the field of life sciences and health care. The group combines a unique cross-domain expertise in developing semantic-aware applications, integrating large scale biomedical data sources, and natural language processing. The technology we develop focuses on automating a number of tasks like:

  • Integrating structured and unstructured biological sources
  • Text-mining and transparent linking of structured to unstructured knowledge
  • Multi-dimensional querying and new implicit information inference

Technology Showcase

In the world of information explosion we live in today, the traditional approaches for representing computer science data are inadequate for the emerging needs of the biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries. If a company wants to remain competitive in these industries, it needs to overcome the “productivity crisis” in research and development.

Traditional approaches lack the flexibility and dynamics necessary to generate high quality data and make use of it. We in Ontotext try to look ahead and offer an innovative knowledge integration technology for implementing infrastructures that natively support RDF, efficient logic inference, and text-analysis. Our technology will increase considerably the productivity of the individual life science and health care researcher.
