Drew Warren, the CEO of Recognos Financial, recently presented a webcast titled ‘Why Semantics Matters: Demonstrating the Power of Semantic Technology within Financial Services’.
This webcast was given in conjunction with Expert System, a key technology partner of the Recognos Group, and was hosted by Semanticweb.com, the leaders in disseminating information about semantic web technology.
This event showcased the Mutual Fund Information Portal, the subscription service provided by the Recognos Group in partnership with Delta Data. This service provides online access to the SEC filings for Mutual Funds but with document searching, document navigation at the chapter level, automated alerting to new documents as they are filed, and comparison across documents.
The Mutual Fund Information Portal is currently being extended to include data analysis at the data element level within chapters, and a new capability known as the Document Advisor, allowing user interaction to ‘ask questions’ of the document.
The Mutual Fund Information Portal is the first in a range of semantically-enabled business applications for the financial services market. The vision is to create a range of subscription services that provide access to ‘smart’ data, and which provide the foundation on which to provide a range of knowledge-based business applications that are at the leading edge of risk management and compliance solutions available in the market today.
