Exploring FIBO with GraphDB

Exploring FIBO with GraphDB Cover







In this document, we explore the Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO) with Ontotext’s GraphDB.

We use GraphDB to load FIBO, experiment with different reasoning profiles (how OWL 2 RL compares with RDFS), comprehend its structure using the Class Hierarchy diagram and explore it with the Visual Graph facility.

We also demonstrate how GraphDB can be used to combine OWL 2 RL reasoning and property paths to check the structural integrity of FIBO and familiarize ourselves with the structure.

Finally, we present a technique employing GraphDB’s similarity indexes that help facilitate the alignment of FIBO with other industry and regulatory vocabularies.
