Ontologies and Language Technologies for Technology Observation in Theseus-ORDO (TechWatch ORDO)
At DFKI, we already achieved first results in the development of technologies for the preparation of relevant information to be used in all phases of the ideas management, i. e., from the generation of ideas to the decision of their realization. Ontology-based semantic search technology renders possible the identification of newsworthy innovations, key technologies and experts in a given application area. The structural interdependencies of the identified information are compactly visualized. In this manner, the prospects as well as the risks of innovative ideas can be recognized and evaluated in good time.
