Level:  Introductory

The Financial Industry Business Ontology (FIBO) is not only a conceptual ontology that conveys the standardized meaning of financial industry concepts and terminology; it is also the basis for building dramatically new operational capabilities to support financial and regulatory driven use cases. FIBO provides the semantic scaffolding to construct enterprise and line of business ontologies that will offer next generation data capabilities for organizations. FIBO will also play a critical role in exploiting emerging technologies. It is well positioned to provide standards for blockchain distributed ledger smart contracts and provide a foundational capability for knowledge graphs and machine learning.

This presentation will describe how FIBO can be applied now and in the future. This will include discussion on the following:

• Semantically harmonize disparate lines of business data
• Support automated sensitive data and asset inventory profiling
• Provide alignments for data at rest and data in motion
• Identify systemic financial risk across a derivatives trading network
• Improve accuracy and efficiency of regulatory reporting using blockchain
• Reduce the risk of loans and loan securitization across the financial industry using blockchain
• Provide semantic tagging for machines to understand financial content on websites
• Provide the basis for a knowledge graph
• Perform entity resolution using machine learning
• Provide capabilities to support virtual assistants
• Converge with deep learning to perform reasoning
