Many organizations have devoted resources to building or purchasing ontologies — formalized categories, terms and relationships for a specific domain, particularly in industries such as financial services, biotechnology, etc. An ontology codifies an organization’s subject matter expertise and ensures consistent presentation and understanding of enterprise information.
Attivio’s Active Intelligence Engine® (AIE®) fully leverages your existing ontologies by seamlessly integrating them to improve recall by automatically expanding query terms with synonyms defined in the ontology.
Attivio’s optional AIE ontology module provides essential ontology-related functionality, including:
Of course, an organization does not have to use ontologies with AIE. For example, AIE automatically generates and presents recommended facets (dimensions) in response to user queries, enabling easy navigation and exploration of information.
For organizations that do rely on ontologies, AIE will actively utilize your ontology when ingesting, indexing and presenting your enterprise information, to maximize its business value, meaning and consistency.
