CogniPy for Pandas, Semantic Tech Reasoner and Editor
CogniPy for Pandas - In-memory Graph Database and Knowledge Graph with Natural Language Interface
Whats in the box
Reasoning, exploration of RDF/OWL, FluentEditor CNL files, with OWL/RL Reasoner (Jena) as well as SPARQL Graph queries (Jena) and visualization.
What you can do with this:
- Write your graph/ontology in Controlled Natural Language or import it from RDF/OWL
- Add reasoning rules/T-Box in Controlled Natural Language
- Import data using Pandas or scrap them from the Internet
- Draw the resulting, materialized graph
- Use SPARQL to execute graph query
- Use output Dataframe for further processing with Pandas
- If you are on Mac or Linux You MUST have mono installed on your system.
- Graph drawing based on pydot that is dependent on GraphViz - you should try to download and install it manually. Or just
conda install pydot graphviz
- Tested with Anaconda
- Tested on MacOS, Winows and Linux (Ubuntu)
cognipy on your system using :
pip install cognipy
Hello world program
In Jupyter you write:
from cognipy.ontology import Ontology #the ontology processing class
%%writefile hello.encnl World says Hello. Hello is a word.
onto = Ontology("cnl/file","hello.encnl") print(onto.select_instances_of("a thing that says a word")[["says","Instance"]])
Output (Pandas DataFrame):
says Instance 0 Hello World
Example Jupyter notebooks that use CogniPy in several scenarios can be found in the Examples section

- CogniPy heavily depends on the contributions from its community. See for how you may help CogniPy to become an even greater tool.
Open Source Libraries this project is build on
- ELK - ELK is an ontology reasoner that aims to support the OWL 2 EL profile. See http://elk.semanticweb.org/ for further information.
- HermiT - HermiT is a conformant OWL 2 DL reasoner that uses the direct semantics. It supports all OWL2 DL constructs and the datatypes required by the OWL 2 specification.
- Apache Jena - Jena is a Java framework for building semantic web applications. It provides tools and Java libraries to help you to develop semantic web and linked-data apps, tools and servers.
Building new version
nuget restore cognipy\CogniPy.sln msbuild cognipy\CogniPy.sln /t:Rebuild /p:Configuration=Release /p:Platform="any cpu" python setup.py bdist_wheel python -m twine upload dist/* --verbose
Why it is done this way?
The software emerged as an offspring of FluentEditor and therefore it has some common parts. One of them is the .net. We are planning to move these parts to java so whole stack will be more technology consistent. The
convert_to_java branch already contains the project files converted automatically from .net to java. Anyway, manual crafting is now required to make it all work.
