RDFox is a high-performance in-memory knowledge graph and semantic reasoner, optimised for speed and efficiency. Designed from the ground up with reasoning in mind, it outperforms other graph databases while also providing benefits and insights that cannot be achieved by alternatives.
Accurately planning a build is one of the biggest challenges facing the construction industry, particularly considering the increasing complexity of buildings and the range of disciplines required in the process (structural, electrical, landscaping, etc.). Project data is often kept in different silos and it is difficult to create an integrated and interoperable information flow across all stages of the process.
Oxford Semantic Technologies Limited (OST), the company behind the cutting-edge knowledge graph and reasoning engine, RDFox®, announces a refreshed board and new commercial leadership.
RDFox v6.0 is here and it’s a big one! This release is landmarked by ground-breaking features including the new high availability setup and a total reimagining of the handling of named graphs. These features alone offer the opportunity for truly cutting-edge solutions, but when combined with the myriad of other improvements and the blistering capabilities of RDFox already in place, they allow you to step ahead of the curve.
Oxford Semantic Technologies has secured the patent, US Patent No. 11,409,698, for the application of sideways information passing to SPARQL queries. This new approach brings a significant optimization to graph database querying by drastically reducing the number of intermediate answers considered during query processing, further boosting RDFox’s lightning response.
Have you ever wondered how to find the right recipe for the ingredients you have at home? Have you felt very frustrated when you searched for recipes based on one ingredient but you didn’t have the other ingredients in the recipe at home?
The need for graph technology on the edge has exploded in recent times. Applications are endless and often practically beneficial but due to limitations in hardware and software technology, the reality has been underwhelming. With the latest from RDFox that’s all about to change!
The two branches of AI, machine learning and semantic reasoning, are often discussed as opposing forces but in reality, their strengths can be combined to create a solution greater than the sum of its parts.
This open-source extension is designed to help RDFox users work with their data, queries and rules more efficiently. The extension adds colour to keywords, operators, IRIs and literals in a number of RDF formats (Turtle, TriG, N-Triples and N-Quads), as well as Datalog rules, SPARQL scripts, and RDFox shell scripts.
The era of black-box AI systems is over. Next-generation systems will optimize the explainability and trustworthiness of the overall human-AI system, and knowledge graphs will serve as a key ingredient that makes these systems more explainable, inspectable, auditable and, ultimately, controllable.
With RDFox v5.6 comes a flurry of improvements: enhancing the Web Console to increase your efficiency when handling data; introducing a powerful, versatile way to interact with the RDFox Shell remotely; and an all-new tool to visualise semantic reasoning — the latest essential for data comprehension. Each, in its own way, will change the way you use RDFox from this day on.
Combining the advanced performance of the RDFox reasoning engine with the resources available in the AWS cloud, Amazon has created a fraudulent transaction chain detection solution that is both scalable and fast enough to combat financial crime.
OST have been issued another patent for groundbreaking graph querying techniques, this time centered upon complex query evaluation using sideways information passing.
Formula 1 is a sport like no other. Anything can happen and the smallest of errors can mean the difference between finishing first and crashing into a wall of tires. The cost of any mistakes is further amplified by major factors outside the driver's control, from the ever-changing weather to the quality of the car provided by the constructor.
Dow Jones has incorporated a powerful new semantic technology into its product line—RDFox, from Oxford Semantic Technologies.
All usage of RDFox, whether via its built-in shell, REST API, or Java library, involves an RDFox server. In turn, whenever there is an RDFox server there is an RDFox server directory - a filesystem location containing any settings and data the user wishes to persist to the next session.
The RDFox Web Console is no longer experimental, now with full SPARQL 1.1 support, Named Graph support, and the all-new CONSTRUCT Explorer!
In this blog post we presented a practical use case where we solve a data consistency problem in ETL processing by an integration of PoolParty Semantic Suite and the RDFox database. RDFox provides high performance data processing accessible via SPARQL and SHACL standards and implements an RDF-based Datalog engine that can be used for in-store deductions.

By considering two cases in which an IT asset management system built with RDFox would provide useful insights, we step beyond the standards and unlock greater functionality.
