Industrial ontologies group our history
“Industrial Ontologies” Group: Our History

  • 1978-1984 – We took part in development of the first in USSR Industrial Natural Language Processing System “DESTA”, which included semantic analysis and ontologies;

  • 1985-1989 - We took part in development of the first in USSR Industrial Automated Natural Language Programming System “ALISA”, which Enabled Semantic Annotation, Discovery and Integration of software components (prototype of today's Semantic Web Services concept);

“Industrial Ontologies” Group: Our History

  • 1990-1993 – under name of Metaintelligence Lab. we were piloting concept of a Metasemantic Network (triplet-based (meta-)knowledge representation model) – prototype of today’s RDF-based knowledge representation in Semantic Web;

  • 1994-2000 – various projects with industrial partners, e.g. MetaAtom – “Semantic Diagnostics of Ukrainian Nuclear Power Stations based on Metaknowledge”; MetaHuman – industrial medical diagnostics expert system based on Metaknowledge”; Jeweler – metamodelling and control of industrial processes, etc.; got several research grants from Finnish Academy;

“Industrial Ontologies” Group: Our History

  • 2000-2001 – we have created branches in Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam (heart of Semantic Web activities in Europe) where now working 5 our former team members, in Jyvaskyla University (several tens of researchers) and established research groups in Kharkov (Ukraine) on Data Mining, Educational Ontologies, Telemedicine, etc.

  • 2001-2003 – we took part in MultiMeetMobile Tekes Project, in InBCT Tekes Project in Tempus EU Compact Project in (or in cooperation with) University of Jyvaskyla where we further promote Semantic Web concepts.

“Industrial Ontologies” Group: Our History

  • 2004-2007 – we worked on SmartResource Tekes Project (in cooperation with TeliaSonera, Metso Automation, TietoEnator, ABB, Science Park, University of Jyvaskyla) which is fully based on our views and approaches for implementation of Semantic Web technology. We are also performing the IdeaMentoring- I and IdeaMentoring- II projects funded by NOKIA to provide solutions for implementing Semantic Web Technology to mobile applications and services.

  • 2007-… – we are working on UBIWARE Tekes Project (in cooperation with ABB, Fingrid, Metso Automation, Metso Shared Services, Nokia, Hansa Ecuras Oy., Inno-W, University of Jyvaskyla) which further develops our concepts and platforms based on Semantic and Agent technologies integration. Working on ICT SHOK, FP7 and EU Tempus applications

Industrial ontologies group brief introduction

Global Understanding Environment (GUN)

Our invention

GUN can be considered as a kind of Ubiquitous Eco-System for Ubiquitous Society,which will be such proactive, self-managed evolutionary Semantic Web of Things, People and Abstractions where all kinds of entities can understand, interact, serve, develop and learn from each other.

S m a r t R e s o u r c e

Tekes Project (2004-2006)

  • SmartResource: “Proactive Self-Maintained Resources in Semantic Web” Tekes project (2004-2006): .

  • One of the most essential results of the SmartResource project was creation of the “Smart Resource Technology” for designing complex software systems. The technology allows considering each traditional system component as a “smart resource”, i.e. proactive, agent-driven, self-managing. Such approach has shown certain advantages comparably to other software technologies, e.g. OOSE, SOA, Component-Based SE, Agent-Driven SE, Semantic SE, etc.

Industrial ontologies group brief introduction

What is UBIWARE (in short)

  • UBIWARE is a new software technology and a tool to support:

    • design and installation of…,

    • autonomic operation of… and

    • Interoperability among…

  • … complex, heterogeneous, open, dynamic and self-configurable distributed industrial systems;…

  • … and to provide following services for system components:

    • adaptation;

    • automation;

    • centralized or P2P organization;

    • coordination, collaboration, interoperability and negotiation;

    • self-awareness, communication and observation;

    • data and process integration;

    • (semantic) discovery, sharing and reuse.


Industrial ontologies group brief introduction


"Smart Semantic Middleware

for Ubiquitous" Computing

  • Due to heterogeneity of provided services and supported components, UBIWARE is based on integration of several technologies:Semantic Web, Distributed Artificial Intelligence and Agent Technologies, Ubiquitous Computing, SOA (Service-Oriented Architecture), Web X.0, P2Pand related concepts.

  • The research and design on UBIWARE is started byIndustrial Ontologies Groupwithin UBIWARE project: “Smart Semantic Middleware for Ubiquitous Computing” (June 2007 – May 2010) funded by Tekes and industrial companies.
