Ontos API is live and allows to create semantic annoation from text

Ontos launches the new API which includes NLP, personal dictionary and web services for semantic web application development

(PresseBox) (Nidau, Switzerland, ) Ontos™ announced at the Semantic Technology conference 2009 (SemTech09) the API. Today the service was launched in Beta and will allow developers to create semantic metadata with the OntosMiner in English and the API will also include the full web services in order to create own applications.

With this new API Ontos offers to the developer community the possibility to develop own applications without having to think on how to create semantic metadata, without taking care on how to store information in a RDF database. This unique approach gives a great flexibility to create semantic solutions that are based on open standards promoted by W3C. With the API the user can already access over 400’000 articles that have been semantically annotated. In a first stage only a selected number of Beta Users will use the service. During 2009 the API service will be continuously extended. On the roadmap are further languages like German, Russian and French. By late 2009 the free API service will be extended and will include not only read access to the RDF store but will also have write functions. Further Ontos will provide the possibility to setup a complete own infrastructure including the possibility to define own sources for crawling, own RDF store and more.
