Semantic Web: Ontological Search Approach

The demonstrator provides a novel semantic search approach for a business-to-business (B2B) platform. Users can search through product and ser-vice catalogues, manage orders, and trace the progress of order fulfillment. A network of ontologies annotates the product catalogues and related knowledge from multiple domains. The latter resides in a Triple Store. Platform users typi-cally do not know the internal structure of the ontology network. They cannot search through its resources quickly and unambiguously, for this reason.

Improving simulations-based industrial optimization with Semantic Web technologies

Time-series based simulations of industrial processes are instrumental to optimizing a variety of industrial settings. For example, time-series data can be used for the modeling of manufacturing processes, which in turn are the foundation for simulation-based optimization approaches. In this paper, we describe a use case, developed together with Infineon Technologies Austria AG. In this use case, monitoring data stored in relational databases was used to build process models of industrial chillers through black-box modeling techniques.
