September 10, 2010 – Researchers from Sheffield Hallam University have joined an initiative aiming at creating new Internet search tools that will enable enterprises to extract better business intelligence from the semantic web.

The Institute of Engineering and Technology published the article, “CUBIST project aims at better Semantic Web search” that shared this news.

A team from Sheffield Hallam University’s Communication and Computing Research Centre will contribute to the CUBIST (Combining and Uniting Business Intelligence with Semantic Technologies) project to develop methodologies and a platform that combines features of semantic techniques with those of standard business intelligence. The CCRC’s contribution is focused primarily in Formal Concept Analysis (FCA), a way of deriving an ontology from groups of objects and their properties. It will be interesting to watch this unfold and see the results of this project.
