Users can now work with what their data means instead of struggling with a fire hose of data, CEO Mike Davis said.

HIGHFLEET has the only mature, scalable first order logic-based deductive database that continues to find increasing use in “clean sheet” installations and as an embedded capability in other firms’ products and solutions.

Semantic Technology firm, HIGHFLEET, Inc., announced today the release of the latest version of its eXtensible Knowledge Server (XKS) ontology-based deductive database.

“HIGHFLEET has the only mature, scalable first order logic-based deductive database that continues to find increasing use in 'clean sheet' installations and as an embedded capability in other firms’ products and solutions,” said HIGHFLEET CEO, Mike Davis.

Says Davis, “The 1980’s database technology in use today and its expensive stack of applications struggle to make sense of data and do nothing to solve the 'drowning in data' problems faced by Government agencies and Commercial firms.”

HIGHFLEET’S “clean sheet” deductive database software and Semantic Federation of Legacy Databases solution use the same deductive reasoning that humans use to knit the world together in an understandable fashion. Only HIGHFLEET’S systems do this reasoning much faster, over large models (ontologies) and large amounts of data. Users can now work with what their data means instead of struggling with a fire hose of data.

What is easy for a human mind and for HIGHFLEET’S systems to understand and interpret is impossible for traditional databases and their applications to make sense of.

For example, everyone knows that two people can’t be in the same place at the same time. People also know that a battalion can’t be subordinate to a platoon and that sons can’t be older than their fathers.

But databases don’t know these things and today’s companies are swamped with data they have to manually interpret. But with HIGHFLEET’S eXtensible Knowledge Server companies can stop drowning in data and use a system that can reason over meaning rather than just dump data that analysts need to interpret.

The examples of problems in industry run from the mundane, but still expensive to solve with traditional approaches, to the complex that can’t be solved with traditional approaches.

For example a Program Manager in a Defense company wants to assemble a team for a project. She uses the human resources database to find the appropriate people, including Systems Engineer, John K. The trouble is, John K. is dead, but still on the HR database, as are several people who left the company. Our Program Manager even gets email notices that someone on the HR database is slated for Ethics Training, but they are no longer with the company.

In a semantically federated system a database that shows John K. is no longer being paid would inform the HR database that he's not with the company and he would be removed from the database. A seemingly mundane issue, unless your company has thousands of employees and thousands of mistakes.

Another example has our Program Manager’s various Government customers wanting their invoicing done differently. She has to employ people making six figures to manually fill out these forms, driving overhead costs through the roof. With HIGHFLEET’S software, these forms would be automatically filled out, keeping Operations and Maintenance costs down and making the firm more competitive.

Another example from a current HIGHFLEET project has a major pharmaceutical firm with a complex analysis problem whose solution is worth nearly a billion dollars. The analysis requires data from numerous sources to feed a rich ontology (model) of the problem. HIGHFLEET’s Semantic Federation of Legacy Databases captures the meaning of data in different databases, and leaves it in place for local use while answering hard analysis problems for the enterprise. Only HIGHFLEET’S systems can both model the problem and reason over the problem model and data to give a force multiplier for analysis.

Multiply these problems many thousand fold in medium to large firms across the nation and it’s a safe bet that a significant portion of the country’s gross domestic product is wasted because companies don’t have deductive systems like HIGHFLEET’S.

HIGHFLEET’S systems of Semantic Federation and its XKS software are solving hard problems in the U.S. Intelligence Community, law enforcement, pharmaceuticals, collaborative decision management (Purus Technologies, Canada), analytics and cloud security (FluidOps, Germany), cyber security, manufacturing knowledge capture and reuse, medical informatics (MDLogix, U.S.) and social network analysis.
