Advanced Technologies for Interoperability
Semantic web technologies offer great promise for rigor and precision in specifying your information, and in this way your interoperability problems are greatly reduced. Support is offered for the introduction of semantics and ontologies in international interoperability standards, and identification of the right ones for your needs. As conditions allow, sample ontologies will be made available for public consumption here.
With 27 years of experience at the National Institute of Standards and Technology, Expertise in how interoperability works, and how national and international standards play a role. Services offered include:
The introduction of Smart Grid technology into our electricity infrastructure is poised for incredible growth. Much of that growth surrounds the challenge of information exchange and interoperability among utilities, distribution, transmission, residences, industry, and commercial customers. The information includes demand-response transactions, buying back of electricity from local generators (such as wind turbines or photovoltaic panels), and facility control signals. There is much experience to be shared among different commercial and industrial sectors in terms of effective standards and information sharing protocols. Expertise if offered in the development and validation of new standards to support the Smart Grid.
Healthcare is another area where enormous cost savings are possible by adapting existing best practices from other sectors.
