Ensuring compliance

The purpose of the service is to support compliance with legislation in the area of information technology and cyber-security, at the moment in particular with the EU Data Protection Regulation - GDPR, for the large organisations (e.g. ministries, multinationals).

The service is based on a decomposition of the legal acts into regulations, their transformation into specific duties for the organisation and on an identification of the appropriate way to fulfil the duties. It is followed by a gap and impact analysis, a proposal for an action plan for compliance, preparation of compliance demonstration, support of the subordinate organisations and departments, education and consultation support for the responsible persons.

Semantic decomposition

The purpose of the service is a semantic decomposition of the documents intended for a given target group - e.g. the professionals (especially laws, strategies, concepts, methodologies, manuals, ...).

By using advanced analytic tools and approaches, we identify everything that is important in the documents and web sites - concepts, definitions, descriptions, rights, duties, procedures, facts, evidence, formulas, designs, ... (so-called semantic entities). If entities are not labelled, we will label them and subsequently classify, address, link, and display them.

An output of this activity is a dictionary of all identified semantic entities from the document or the web site with appropriate labels and internal addresses. It can be in the form of a text file, an excel spreadsheet, a database, a presentation, or a tree of knowledge.

Examples include a decomposition of laws into regulations for entrepreneurs, a glossary of definitions from laws, an overview of the rights of natural persons, the duty of legal persons in the area, a set of solutions for the life situations.

Transformation of a document into the tree

This service follows the semantic decomposition. All important information from the decomposed documents is filed in the form of the so-called tree of knowledge according to the Web 3.0 W3C SKOS standard. The tree is displayed in the Knowww cloud environment, accessible through a web browser on a smartphone, tablet, or PC.

Trees can be seen on the portal Knowww.

The purpose of these trees is to make it easier for the reader to study and especially to search in a complex, large document or group of documents. Search is primarily semantic; full-text search is an another option.

Examples include laws, EU legislative acts, international treaties, decrees, strategies, concepts, methodologies, instructions, organizational orders, textbooks, monographs, philosophical or economic works.

Support for creating semantically correct structured documents

The purpose of consulting support is to increase document readability and enable an efficient search over their semantic content through the activities such as:

  • internal addressing within a document
  • metadata to documents
  • searching for documents within a web site
  • proper labelling of the entities for more efficient search
  • redesigning the presentation of web site content

Creating a knowledge base

Within this service, we perform a semantic decomposition of a larger number of documents and web sites with a common theme and their transformation into trees, forests and integration into a common knowledge base.

An example of the knowledge base is knowledge base concerning the protection of personal data on the basis of all EU information sources, presented in the final of EU Datathon 2017.

Consultancy and implementation services for Web 3.0

Consultancy services cover the activities related to semantic analysis of the information and knowledge published by the organisation in the form of documents, websites, datasets, social networks.

The result of the activities is a design and implementation of the knowledge base, registers, vocabulary, manuals, and other semantic structures important for the support of the organization's internal and external activities.
