Based on its open platform metaphactory, metaphacts has developed a domain optimized solution delivering an agile application for search, annotation and visualization for humanities and cultural heritage research. The solution aims at providing a collaborative platform for humanities and cultural heritage research using knowledge representation and Semantic Web technologies. It tackles the challenges faced by art historians, curators, conservators, and scientists on a daily basis, and supports them in authoring and publishing cultural heritage data.
Life Sciences organizations are challenged today with significant data access problems as most of the data required to achieve their goals - for example in drug discovery pipelines - is located in numerous disparate repositories, inside and outside the company. In this context, knowledge graphs become increasingly important in the life sciences domain, to structure, access and analyze the vast amount of data and knowledge available.
Using metaphactory, pharmaceutical companies can build, manage and curate their own knowledge graph for unified data access across heterogeneous data sources. Based on our platform, customers can easily setup a one-stop portal for a wide range of knowledge sources, covering relations about diseases, drugs, side effects, and more.
The Wikimedia Foundation’s ‘Wikidata’ project aims at building a free linked database providing the data contained in Wikipedia in a structured, machine-processable format. As the Wikidata knowledge graph is not only a prototypical example but also a valuable resource for the community, metaphacts is working in close cooperation with the Wikimedia Foundation to help others utilize the knowledge that is created within the Wikidata project. Leveraging the open platform metaphactory and its extensible, easy-to-use components and services, metaphacts offers a full-fledged portfolio for interacting with and managing open knowledge graphs such as Wikidata and building applications on top.
