Ontolog Technical Discussion: Ontology Application & Implementation (Take-II) - Thu 30-Nov-2006     (1)

  • Topic: "Ontology Application & Implementation (Take-II)" Panel Discussion     (1A)

  • Shared-screen support (VNC session) will be started 5 minutes before the call at: http://vnc2.cim3.net:5800/     (1D5)
    • view-only password: "ontolog"     (1D5A)
    • if you plan to be logging into this shared-screen option (which the speaker may be navigating), and you are not familiar with the process, please try to call in 5 minutes before the start of the session so that we can work out the connection logistics. Help on this will generally not be available once the presentation starts.     (1D5B)
    • people behind corporate firewalls may have difficulty accessing this. If that is the case, please download the slides below and runing them locally. The speaker will prompt you to advance the slides during the talk.     (1D5C)
  • Please note that this session will be recorded, and the audio archive is expected to be made available as open content to our community membership and the public at-large under our prevailing open IPR policy.     (1D9)

Background     (1G)

After a very successful first session we had last year, this is the second time we are doing a panel discussion on Ontology Applications and Implmentations. In his session, entitled "Ontology Applications & Implementations (Take-II)", we will, again, invites experts and all participants to join us in exchanging insights on implementation issues pertaining to ontologies and semantics.     (1G1)

Agenda & Proceedings     (1H)

The session is comprised of four small     (1H2)

presentations (10 minutes each) discussing aspects of real world implementation of Ontological and Semantic applications. Each presenter will follow their talk with a strictly limited 5 minute minor Q&A. At the end of the fourth Q&A session, a larger general Q&A will take place and evolve into a free form conversation.     (1H3)

The gist is to learn what approaches are being used in the field to solve     (1H4)

some of the ontology concerns in today's IT world. Presenters will generously share their experiences including issues they encountered and how they solved them. Talks will also be open to what might be in the future.     (1H5)

  • Session Format: this is be a virtual session conducted over an augmented conference call     (1H6)
    • 1. Opening by the Moderator (5 min.)     (1H6A)
    • 2. we'll go around with a self-introduction of participants (10~15 minutes) - we'll skip this if we have moe than 20 participants (in which case, it will be best if members try to update their namesake pages on this wiki prior to the call so that everyone can get to know who's who more easily.)     (1H6B)
    • 3. Introduction of Panelists (Moderator)     (1H6C)
    • 4. Briefings by each panelist (10 minute presentation, followed by a 5 minute Q&A)     (1H6D)
    • 5. Open general discussion by all participants (30~45 minutes)     (1H6E)
    • 6. Summary / Conclusion / Follow-up (Moderator)     (1H6F)
  • Pertinent Issues we might explore during the discussion:     (1H7)
The main theme of the session is the lessons learned from implementing     (1H8)

ontological theory or semantic capabilities. Accordingly, I would like to invite people who have a vested interested to pose questions based on the presentations.     (1H9)

The level of details should be left open as I would like to encourage     (1H10)

business people to ask questions as well as technical people.     (1H11)

Panelists Briefings     (1I)

  • Moderator and Panelists' presentation title, abstract and prepared slides (which can be accessed by pointing your web browsers to the corresponding "slides" link below)     (1I1)
    • DuaneNickull / Kurt Conrad (Co-Moderators)     (1I1A)
      • Abstract: Ontology and Semantics are subjects that often get discussed in the theoretical world. Many people who read the work are left with questions such as "How can I implement this" or at least wonder what some concrete first steps might be. This session will tackle the issue of implementation by having speakers share their experiences in terms of the problems they faced and the solutions they chose to solve their ontological and semantic problems.     (1I1A1)
    • Peter O'Kelly - slides - audio playback starting at time-point 09:00 min.     (1I1B)
      • Title: Data Modeling is Underrated: A Bright Future Ahead in the Grand Schema     (1I1B1)
      • Abstract: Logical data modeling is often misunderstood and underrated, in part     (1I1B2)

because of limitations in related techniques and tools. This talk will briefly summarize some historical challenges, review some reasons why logical data modeling is more relevant than ever before, and project how logical data modeling and ontology-related modeling have a complementary relationship.     (1I2)

    • John McGrath - slides - audio playback starting at time-point 23:40 min.     (1I3A)
      • Title: Taxonomy & Ontology Impact on Search Infrastructure     (1I3A1)
      • Abstract: Various forms of metadata are becoming an important part of search infrastructure to support feature advancement and better information access. Well review how taxonomies and ontologies are impacting the infrastructural design of information access and what trends are currently seen in the marketplace. Also, a discussion of what��s likely in the near future.     (1I3A2)
    • Gunar Penekis - slides - audio playback starting at time-point 40:46 min.     (1I3B)
      • Title: The XML Metadata Platform (XMP)     (1I3B1)
      • Abstract: Gunar's talk will be on XMP as a metadata serialization format based on RDF     (1I3B2)

and XML. Gunar will explore what XMP is, it's relationship to RDF (look at code), and schema support, partners, SDK 4.0. The XML Metadata Platform was designed to aide with Ontological and semantic implementations in mind and strives to be standards compliant. People looking at implementing some form of semantic or ontological declarations might wish to review the open source software development kit.     (1I4)

    • Roger Sippl - slides - audio playback starting at time-point 56:36 min.     (1I5A)
      • Title: Composite Applications Built from Real World Enterprise Ontologies in SOA Environments     (1I5A1)
      • Abstract: The advent of SOA and composite applications has resulted in a new requirement for ontology and semantic implementation to help understand resources. Ontology's have proven imperative to sharing information across multiple taxonomies. Above All software CEO Roger Sippl will share his company's experience in sorting out a methodology to meet these requirements.     (1I5A2)
