A Glimpse Into 2023 for OST & RDFox

A Glimpse Into 2023 for OST & RDFox
Divya Sekar

2023 was a year filled with achievements ranging from new RDFox releases to winning awards! In this blog post, we’ll be summarising the highlights of our eventful 2023.

Fast, faster, fastest — always RDFox.

The latest independent benchmark report measured the performance of 6 triple-stores using Wikidata.

Wikidata is one of the most popular RDF sources in the world with over 15 billion triples.

The report measured the import time, export time, and query speed of all the triple-stores, and it was found that:

  • RDFox only took 6 hours to import the entire Wikidata dataset.
  • RDFox had the fastest query speed of 0.016 seconds, about 5 to 750 times faster than other triple-stores.
  • RDFox was the only triple-store that could export the entire Wikidata dataset—in less than 6 hours, too!

Record breaking turnout!

9 workshops, 250 attendees.

Our Intro to SPARQL and Advanced Reasoning workshops range from teaching people how to write queries to learning about advanced Datalog, and we’ve had some amazing feedback!

"Incredible session! Thank you for the enriching clarifications."
"The workshop proved RDFox is easy to start with, despite being very powerful."

Another conference, another award?!

We marked our presence in notable conferences in 2023, from ESWC, ENDORSE, Knowledge Graph Conference (KGC) to SEMANTiCS.

We ran a few workshops and presented joint talks with our partner, derivo, and customer, Grundfos!

Notably, our CEO, Peter Crocker, and customer, Mikkel Brynildsen of Grundfos, were winners of the SEMANTiCS Industry Track for the best industry contribution in 2023.

Keep a lookout on our events page to attend our future talks.

Check out our talk at ENDORSE 2023, where our CEO talked about finding the right search.

The team behind Oxford Semantic Technologies started working on RDFox in 2011 at the Computer Science Department of the University of Oxford with the conviction that flexible and high-performance reasoning was a possibility for data-intensive applications without jeopardising the correctness of the results. RDFox is the first market-ready knowledge graph designed from the ground up with reasoning in mind. Oxford Semantic Technologies is a spin-out of the University of Oxford and is backed by leading investors including Samsung Venture Investment Corporation (SVIC), Oxford Sciences Enterprises (OSE) and Oxford University Innovation (OUI).
