Background     (6)

Ontolog Forum is rolling out a series of events (talks and discussion sessions) between April and July 2006 that revolve around the topic: "Ontologizing the Ontolog Body of Knowledge" during which this community will explore the "what's" and "how's" to the development of a semantically interoperable application, using the improved access to the community knowledge of Ontolog as a case in point.     (6A)

The OntologTaxoThesaurus project is one of the activities spurred by the "Ontologizing the Ontolog Body of Knowledge" exercise.     (6B)

At this session Professor Bob Smith (Cal State U & Tall Tree Labs), Dr. Denise Bedford (World Bank) and the OntologTaxoThesaurus team will be running a combined work session and project review session on Thursday June 15, 2005 to allow knowledge engineers and domain experts to confer and help categorize 'concepts' extracted from Ontolog's knowledge content, as part of the effort in the overall OntologTaxoThesaurus project.     (6C)

Agenda & Proceedings     (7)

Topic: OntologTaxoThesaurus Project Work Session - Categorizing Concepts     (7A)

  • Abstract (by Bob):     (7A1)
    • This Ontolog Taxo-Thesaurus Project is documenting a process for "Building a Top Down Ontology from the Bottom Up". Our primary goal is an easier and more comprehensive access to Ontolog's Knowledge Base. Our focus is on the extensive heterogenous body of knowledge contained within this Wiki. The Project Team of volunteers is pursuing the RoadMap describe by Dr. Bedford. This RoadMap includes 6 sequential Steps using tools and judgments to produce documents such as Concept Lists, Concept Clusters, Category Profiles, etc.     (7A1A)

Questions, Answers, Discourse & Notes     (7B)

  • For those who have further questions and discussion on this topic, please post them to the ontolog forum so that we can all benefit from the discourse.     (7B2)
