Boeing had five patents in big data during Q1 2024. The Boeing Co filed patents in Q1 2024 for a system that generates an ontological knowledge graph using ontology and contextual data, displayed in a spherically represented data structure. Another patent focuses on estimating corrosion of a material by obtaining data from various sources and training it to provide a more complete data set. Additionally, methods and manufacturing systems are described for selecting and pre-feeding fasteners based on historical manufacturing data and machine learning analysis, saving significant processing time in automated drilling processes.

Application: Cross-domain ontology model visualization system with world metaphor orthography (Patent ID: US20240104399A1)

The patent filed by The Boeing Co. describes a system and method for generating a digital representation of an organization using an ontological knowledge graph. The system involves obtaining ontology and contextual data for multiple domains, creating a knowledge graph with nodes and links within a spherically represented data structure, and displaying this graph in a digital view. The system can perform analytics on the knowledge graph, align query sets with the graph, determine user personas, define knowledge containers, and establish knowledge paths between nodes.

Additionally, the system defines a spherical knowledge container as an outer shell to scope the boundaries of the knowledge representation view, with terrain objects bordering the surface of the outer shell. These terrain objects, represented by city objects, reflect individual node properties, metrics, and behaviors. The system allows for navigation and interrogation of various elements within the digital view, including query sets, nodes, node paths, terrain objects, city objects, digital views, thresholds, and metrics. The patent also covers a computerized method and a computer program product for implementing the system to generate a digital representation of an organization based on ontology and contextual data.
