As big data expands, machine learning advances, and integration of data becomes more and more critical, taxonomies and ontologies are getting more attention. This interesting information came to us from Database Trends & Applications in their article, “The Case for Smart Taxonomies.”

Taxonomies provide machines with ordered representations. Smart taxonomies can be the basis for finding and communicating insights from vast amounts of content.

To search through large amounts of data and find what you seek as efficiently as possible, it is important to have a comprehensive search feature and quality indexing against a standards-based taxonomy.

A controlled vocabulary is needed to ensure that machine-assisted or fully-automated indexing is comprehensive, regardless of what you are indexing. Access Innovations is one of a very small number of companies able to help its clients generate ANSI/ISO/W3C-compliant taxonomies to make their information findable. We are the intelligence and the technology behind world-class explainable artificial intelligence solutions.
