Ontotext’s signature semantic graph database GraphDB is powering the central metastore (knowledge graph) of Inspec Analytics, the new dynamic intelligence tool of the Inspec research database of the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).
The IET, a publisher of widely respected publications and information services for engineers and technicians, has been delivering engineering intelligence to researchers, organizations and science librarians since 1969 via its Inspec research database.
The research intelligence tool is based on the Inspec database, which has also used Ontotext’s GraphDB to help improve text indexing and discoverability.
Thanks to GraphDB’s capabilities to integrate data and information from multiple sources and to allow semantic search, Inspec Analytics helps users go beyond the engineering literature to uncover the hottest trends across numerous physics and engineering disciplines.
Inspec Analytics uses semantic technology to connect each element of the literature and create a knowledge graph to identify and compare research trends across thousands of organizations and scientific concepts.
The Inspec Analytics dynamic tool based on Ontotext’s semantic graph database helps researchers and leaders monitor the research output of their organization and see how the organization ranks globally. The tool also enables users to explore global trends in research topics and identify potential collaborators in their respective fields. Researchers and decision-makers can also use the analytics tool to identify their organization’s strengths and potential areas for further growth.
