Collaboration with Meaning engines

Exmo collaborates with the meaning engine start-up company whose goal is to help improve the knowledge of corporate knowledge, e.g., catalogs, costumer data, through linked data principles (the application of semantic web technology for publishing data). Among their prospective costumers are music aggregators as well as banks. We have benefited from the position of Nicolas Guillouet for developing generic connectors based on our Alignment API. They introduce two novel features: using the notion of link keys to identify identical items in a data flow and performing hybrid integration which either identifies or creates objects from the incoming flows. In fact, hybrid integration is a type of knowledge evolution that provides new interesting research problems.
