Ontology Works, Inc. was founded in 1998 by Computer Scientists, Linguists and Analysts from the National Security Agency. We decided to create software that uses models (ontologies) of the things a customer cares about and uses these models with the customer’s databases, providing knowledge discovery, not just data retrieval and creating question-answering capabilities never before available. Consequently, we call these systems “Ontology Works Knowledge Servers,” not “databases”. We continue to build on this success and now offer a suite of capabilities that offer proven returns on investment.
