  • Summary: This project aims at compiling for several languages (Dutch, Italian, French and English) a computationally tractable and sharable knowledge repository (= a formally described combination of concepts and their meaningful relationships) for the financial forensics domain. This resource (= ontology),or parts of it, may be commercially exploited as a set of Semantic Web services. The ontology may be an eXtended Mark-up Language database or an Resource Description Framework Schema instance.
