Abstract     (1J)

Track D: "Tackling the Variety Problem in Big Data - I ... intro slides     (1J1)

This is our 9th Ontology Summit, a joint initiative by Ontolog, NIST, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD with the support of our co-sponsors.     (1J2)

Since the beginnings of the Semantic Web, ontologies have played key roles in the design and deployment of new semantic technologies. Yet over the years, the level of collaboration between the Semantic Web and Applied Ontology communities has been much less than expected. Within Big Data applications, ontologies appear to have had little impact.     (1J3)

This year's Ontology Summit is an opportunity for building bridges between the Semantic Web, Linked Data, Big Data, and Applied Ontology communities. On the one hand, the Semantic Web, Linked Data, and Big Data communities can bring a wide array of real problems (such as performance and scalability challenges and the variety problem in Big Data) and technologies (automated reasoning tools) that can make use of ontologies. On the other hand, the Applied Ontology community can bring a large body of common reusable content (ontologies) and ontological analysis techniques. Identifying and overcoming ontology engineering bottlenecks is critical for all communities.     (1J4)

Ontology Summit 2014 will pose and address the primary challenges in these areas of interaction among the different communities. The Summit activities will bring together insights and methods from these different communities, synthesize new insights, and disseminate knowledge across field boundaries.     (1J5)

At the Launch Event on 16 Jan 2014, the organizing team has provided an overview of the program, and how we will be framing the discourse. Today's session (OntologySummit2014 session-05) is the first virtual panel session featured by Track-D, which focuses on "Tackling the Variety Problem in Big Data."     (1J6)

This session will begin with an introduction to ontologies and Big Data and will then proceed to a series of three talks that discuss the integration of ontologies with Big Data. The focus will be on those aspects of Big Data that are most likely to benefit from the use of ontologies, primarily the problem of managing the complexity and variety of the data being processed and analyzed. The panelists will be discussing the use of semantic technologies for:     (1J7)

  • Managing the provenance of the data, including any transformations, analyses and interpretations of the data that have been performed     (1J8)
  • Hypothesis generation and their workflows.     (1J9)
  • Coping with real-world categories.     (1J10)
  • Integrating many highly diverse data sources.     (1J11)

After the panelists briefings, there will be time for Q&A and an open discussion among the panel and all participants.     (1J12)

Briefings     (1J16)

  • Mr. EricChan (Oracle) - "Enabling Enhanced OODA Loop with Modern Information Technology" ... slides     (1J16A)
    • Abstract: ... OODA (Observe, Orient, Decide, Act) loop is a process originally applied to military operations by John Boyd, who conjectured that any operational system faced with incomplete knowledge of the reality, uncertain circumstances, and constantly evolving environment, can thrive by rapid iteration of the OODA loop to continuously interact with the environment to assess and adapt to changes. Nowadays, OODA loop is increasingly applied in the fields of information fusion, situation awareness, and decision support. We define the KIDS ontology to represent a modern enhanced version of the OODA loop in the Knowledge Intensive Database System (KIDS), by normalizing the data into FIHD (Fact, Information, Hypothesis, Directive) loop and knowledge into CARE (Classification, Assessment, Resolution, Enactment) loop; these loops are highly intertwined. In the complementary process, data, and knowledge model, the OODA loop cycles through four types of data and four types of knowledge functions: KIDS observes the quantitative facts, classifies the facts to derive the qualitative information, assesses the information to infer the hypotheses, and resolves the hypotheses to formulate the directives. The KIDS ontology effectively materializes the OODA loops in the data for provenance of the data and knowledge evolution, propels a faster iteration of the OODA loops in real-time, and enables the development of evolutionary OODA loop applications. These three aspects of KIDS --database enabled provenance, process management engine, and application development framework-- are essential facilities for tackling the variety problem in Big Data.     (1J16A1)
  • Mr. NathanWilson (Encyclopedia of Life) - "The Semantic Underpinnings of EOL TraitBank" ... slides     (1J16B)
    • Abstract: ... The Encyclopedia of Life is a project working to provide global access to knowledge about life on Earth. It has recently released the new TraitBank feature ( which provides summary data about biological species. TraitBank is built using semantic technologies and a variety of published ontologies. This talk will explain what EOL and TraitBank are, their underlying architecture, and discuss the ontologies in use. It will also discuss the mechanisms for getting data into and out of the system and plans for future development.     (1J16B1)
  • Ms. RuthDuerr (National Snow and Ice Data Center) - "Semantics and the SSIII Project" ... slides     (1J16C)
    • Abstract: ... The Semantic Sea Ice Interoperability Initiative (SSIII) was funded under NSF��s Interop program to begin the process of bringing semantics to polar research and polar data. Concentrating on sea ice to start, the project is taking a look at how semantics can help bridge diverse audiences such as sea ice researcher's, operational programs, the climate modeling community, and local and indigenous communities that live in the far north. Along the way the project is bringing an understanding of and actual implementation experience with semantic technologies to the National Snow and Ice Data Center (NSIDC) through a series of technology transfer activities with our colleagues at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). In this talk, a range of sub-projects within the overall SSIII umbrella will be described along with the use cases that led to them.     (1J16C1)

[9:57] Ruth Duerr: @Anne: Well your observation goes along with what I've been saying for years about     (1L2AAT)

most people who use experience or other evidence to make decisions are actually doing science     (1L2AAU)

whether they know it or not     (1L2AAV)

[9:59] Adel Ghoneimy: I totally agree. KIDS is very much in line with the scientific method     (1L2AAW)

[10:02] Anne Thessen: I also like the evolutionary applications on Eric Chan slide #8 can accommodate     (1L2AAX)

changing data and knowledge. Again, this is like the scientific process.     (1L2AAY)

[10:03] Adel Ghoneimy: Our intent in KIDS is to support knowledge evolution on personal/community level     (1L2AAZ)

[10:03] Anne Thessen: @ Bob Morris: Maybe evidence would fit into FIHD? Or it would be another layer     (1L2AAAA)

that is used to build the "facts"     (1L2AAAB)

[10:04] Simon Spero: @Anne: if it changes, was it knowledge?     (1L2AAAC)

[10:06] Adel Ghoneimy: Could you elaborate please     (1L2AAAD)

[10:06] Matthew Lange: Anyone, what is FSD?     (1L2AAAE)

[10:07] Anne Thessen: @SimonSpero: Perhaps...because systems change over time. However knowledge can     (1L2AAAF)

change because we got it wrong before. Maybe that's not really knowledge.     (1L2AAAG)

[10:07] Adel Ghoneimy: FSD = Flexible Schema Data     (1L2AAAH)

[10:08] Adel Ghoneimy: Actually system changes because of knowledge evolution     (1L2AAAI)

[10:08] Matthew Lange: Thanks...would be good to have acronyms defined in slides     (1L2AAAJ)

[10:08] Peter P. Yim: ... slide#17 now     (1L2AAAK)

[10:08] Peter P. Yim: ... slide#18 now     (1L2AAAL)

[10:11] Anne Thessen: @AdelGhoneimy: I was thinking more of natural systems. Like the oceans, climate     (1L2AAAM)

or an ecosystem. What we knew about how an ecosystem worked 200 years ago may not be valid now.     (1L2AAAN)

[10:17] Adel Ghoneimy: @AnneThessen: Yes, I agree and due to KIDS provenance you can retrospective     (1L2AAAO)

view old data in light of new knowledge. Especially for understanding trends     (1L2AAAP)

slide#5 blah, blah, blah) when posting a message ... so the archived chat-transcript will make sense     (1L2AAAAC)

to people reading it at a later time (say 3 years from now)     (1L2AAAAD)

[10:29] Douglas Donahue: Sorry. Yes, of course. In description of language problems associated     (1L2AAAAE)

w/semantics associated with identifying terms. Homophony being a consequent, or perhaps an     (1L2AAAAF)

underlying 'feature' of the language. Only trying to point out, or perhaps hint, that such problems     (1L2AAAAG)

become exacerbated with the I18N as well.     (1L2AAAAH)

[10:33] Matthew Lange: has EOL open-sourced the PHPO backend code, and Ruby front-end code?     (1L2AAAAQ)

[10:36] Anne Thessen: @ Matthew Lange: All EOL code is open source as far as I know     (1L2AAAAR)

[10:36] Matthew Lange: @AnneThessen thanks, do you know where it is available, GitHub perhaps?     (1L2AAAAS)

[10:39] Matthew Lange: @AnneThessen hosting in a place like GitHub would enable more rapid (and free)     (1L2AAAAT)

feature enhancements from the community     (1L2AAAAU)

[10:40] Anne Thessen: @MatthewLange: I do not know where the EOL code is hosted. Perhaps you should     (1L2AAAAV)

ask Nathan at the end.     (1L2AAAAW)

[10:42] Matthew Lange: @NathanWilson, are you hosting the front-end Ruby, and back-end PHP code in a     (1L2AAAAX)

public repository somewhere, GitHub perhaps?     (1L2AAAAY)

[10:35] Douglas Donahue: How about stated, or even inferred, scope of contents elements. I'm     (1L2AAAAZ)

supposing Humans are not included, or is this incorrect?     (1L2AAAAAA)

[10:37] Ali Hashemi: (no predators - hurray!)     (1L2AAAAAC)

[11:05] Peter P. Yim: ref. RuthDuerr's SSIII sea ice ontology (slide#10) ... time and again, these real     (1L2AAAAAM)

application cases demonstrate that starting by "ontologizing" existing standards would make an     (1L2AAAAAN)

efficient and effective improvement approach     (1L2AAAAAO)

[11:11] Douglas Donahue: Kudos Semantics-and-the-SSIII-Project, as it ties together the science of     (1L2AAAAAT)

the subject itself, in conjunction with a bonfide understanding, and leveraging of the associated IT     (1L2AAAAAU)

methodology to bring it to life in real world. Thinking ahead, and provisioning for incorporation,     (1L2AAAAAV)

and use of other languages, from the get-go is extremely cool to see up close!     (1L2AAAAAW)

[11:12] Anne Thessen: Just to play devil's advocate. I'm looking at Ruth Duerr Slide #23. If these     (1L2AAAAAX)

communities have successfully used oral traditions to pass on knowledge for millennia, what do they     (1L2AAAAAY)

think technology has to offer? In many ways digital data are far more fragile.     (1L2AAAAAZ)

[11:14] Ruth Duerr: @Anne: Well... the elders may like the oral tradition; but their kids all have     (1L2AAAAAAA)

cell phones and iPads...     (1L2AAAAAAB)

[11:14] GaryBergCross: @Anne Since Digital forms may be more widely shared and they are long lasting     (1L2AAAAAAC)

they may allow a new path for slow accumulation and consolidation.     (1L2AAAAAAD)

[11:17] Bobbin Teegarden: @Ruth What were you thinking about for visualization (and animation over time)?     (1L2AAAAAAE)

[11:17] Mike Bennett: @Anne @Gary @Ruth maybe this is the transformation of the knowledge contained     (1L2AAAAAAF)

in this planet, from traditional communities to shared digital resources.     (1L2AAAAAAG)

[11:09] Peter P. Yim: == Anatoly Levenchuk making a call for Hackathon Project Proposals ...     (1L2AAAAAAH)

[11:18] Peter P. Yim: @Gary, Anatoly's slides is the deck labeled "[4-Hackathon]" under:     (1L2AAAAAAL)

[11:19] Douglas Donahue: Should the Semantics-and-the-SSIII-Project, not be held as a positive, for     (1L2AAAAAAN)

oral traditions only data exchange, moving forward then? Such data necessarily is then committed to     (1L2AAAAAAO)

the Cloud, upon 'discovery', capture, and not only existent in the environment, (where it's     (1L2AAAAAAP)

likelihood for loss is greater) at some point.     (1L2AAAAAAQ)

[11:17] Peter P. Yim: == Q & A and Open Discussion ...     (1L2AAAAAAR)

- [11:17] Matthew Lange: how do i unmute again? ... [ *7 to un-mute ; *6 to go back to mute again ]     (1L2AAAAAAS)

[11:20] Peter P. Yim: ref. Matthew Lange question about availability of the codes for the various     (1L2AAAAAAT)

projects, like EOL - please post url's so we can access them     (1L2AAAAAAU)

[11:23] Nathan Wilson: Other EOL related code is available through the GitHub organization:     (1L2AAAAAAAA)

[11:25] Matthew Lange: Thanks @RuthDuerr and @NathanWilson kudos for open sourcing, and providing the     (1L2AAAAAAAC)

links to the community. Great marketing.     (1L2AAAAAAAD)

[11:23] Leo Obrst: @EricChan: I'm still not sure what "directive" is. It seems like it's a     (1L2AAAAAAAE)

quasi-belief, and/or an action based on that belief. Since the next step is "fact", I am not sure of     (1L2AAAAAAAF)

the relationships among these. But that's not quite right.     (1L2AAAAAAAG)

[11:17] (repeating) Bobbin Teegarden: @Ruth What were you thinking about for visualization (and     (1L2AAAAAAAH)

animation over time)?     (1L2AAAAAAAI)

[11:27] Ruth Duerr: @BobbinTeegarden: Sorry - just saw your post now. We have systems that take a     (1L2AAAAAAAJ)

date range, data set name, and a polygon and provide a number of analysis services (reprojection,     (1L2AAAAAAAK)

subsetting, aggregation, etc.). I want to take the polygon's that come out of the semantic search to     (1L2AAAAAAAL)

feed into these other services to produce the analyses based on the semantic input. A full answer     (1L2AAAAAAAM)

might be rather lengthy...     (1L2AAAAAAAN)

[11:28] Bobbin Teegarden: @Ruth Thank you, would love to hear more if there's a url. Great work!     (1L2AAAAAAAO)

[11:38] Ruth Duerr: @BobbinTeegarden: Sorry no URL at this point...     (1L2AAAAAAAP)

[11:39] Bobbin Teegarden: @Ruth look at ICES Foundation, something I'm working with. They're not     (1L2AAAAAAAQ)

there yet, but you're not alone ;0)     (1L2AAAAAAAR)

[11:29] Nathan Wilson: Regarding the comments about humans, yes we have a page:     (1L2AAAAAAAS)

[11:30] Nathan Wilson: Also we do have some predators listed: Tiger Shark and surprisingly California Poppy.     (1L2AAAAAAAU)

[11:30] Nathan Wilson: The later is clearly an example of erroneous data :-)     (1L2AAAAAAAV)

[11:31] Anne Thessen: @NathanWilson: referring to California Poppy listed as human predator, there     (1L2AAAAAAAW)

are carnivorous plants, but that is strange. Because of heroin deaths?     (1L2AAAAAAAX)

[11:40] Nathan Wilson: I'm sure the California Poppy issue is simply a data error probably from our data providers.     (1L2AAAAAAAY)

[11:30] Nathan Wilson: We'll get that cleaned up shortly.     (1L2AAAAAAAZ)

[11:36] Anne Thessen: @NathanWilson: Polar bears should certainly be listed as a human predator. It     (1L2AAAAAAAAA)

is the only species that actively hunts Homo sapiens.     (1L2AAAAAAAAB)

[11:32] Douglas Donahue: In the event that the level of visioning, and provenance, with Ontology     (1L2AAAAAAAAC)

development, and instantiation; then shouldn't it be about that time? Such functions are inherent     (1L2AAAAAAAAD)

within development. Discussion should probably be warranted among this committee; if it isn't     (1L2AAAAAAAAE)

already going on, now?     (1L2AAAAAAAAF)
