Arbouw Foundation

arbouwFor Stichting Arbouw Irion discloses health care and safety guidelines for the building and construction industry. This information is used by almost all Dutch companies in this brand of industry. Irion started many years ago with adding advanced language technology on Arbouw’s paper guidelines on DVD’s. This functionality has been replaced by a web-based application, in which Irion included semantic functionality, in the form of a extensive and highly flexible semantic wiki-based Portal, called Arbouw Kennisnet.

Apart from this portal, irion disclosed another information repository, the so-called Arbouw-catalogus. This catalogue is meant specifically for the on-spot workforce in the building and construction industry, and is disclosed with Irion’s intelligent Self-learning chatbot, allowing workers to interrogate chatbot “Jasmijn” directly about healthcare and safety matters.
