Cyc provides a basis for intelligent solutions across all aspects of your enterprise, ranging from highly interactive tools to support qualitative analysis to intelligent monitoring systems for surveillance of critical data and infrastructure to data integration and information management.
Research analysts typically need to pose potentially complex questions whose answers require reasoning over disparate data as well as domain-specific expertise and world knowledge.
Web searching is great – if you know what you’re looking for and spend all your time searching. Cyc’s natural language understanding and knowledge modeling capabilities can help you do better by more completely understanding the content of text documents and proactively identifying items of interest to specific information consumers.
Security, Fraud Detection, and Business Continuity
Identifying threats to infrastructure or business continuity requires recognizing potential threats and preventing or remediating them.
Operational environments are often governed by sets of rules or constraints that describe acceptable or unacceptable behavior or performance. These rules and constraints can be richly modeled in Cyc in terms of domain concepts, relations, and values.
Large enterprises rely on substantial infrastructure including IT, communications, office and factory facilities, manufacturing equipment, product and supplies inventory, transportation, and more.
Increasing regulation of many industries and ever-changing compliance and certification guidelines means constantly changing demands on what information needs to be reported, how that information gets interpreted, and it needs to be presented.
If your users are being overwhelmed by too many results from keyword-based searches, or if they haven’t been able to find the particular piece of information they’re seeking, this framework can help.
By combining rich domain modeling, hypothetical reasoning, and forward inference, Cyc provides a rich platform for exploring a range of alternative scenarios.
Training and Education
Training and tutoring require expertise in the domain being taught, in information presentation, and in user modeling.
