OntologySummit2015 Track D Session - Thu 2015-01-22     (1)

Session Co-chairs: MarkUnderwood     (1A)

  • Abstract
    The existence of standards ��� both official and de facto ��� can dramatically influence the software development life cycle for ontology projects. This is especially for greenfield efforts, which can peg existing vocabulary, interoperability settings, test harnesses and verification processes to new projects. Standards may be essential for domain-specific data quality assurance. Standards also have a sociotechnical purpose. Communities of Interest (CoI) behind a standards effort can supersede a standard by concentrating expertise and collecting artifacts related to the standard. Because the world of ���things��� is by definition vast, standards can facilitate connecting software to devices by offering abstractions that impact domain-specific knowledge of the devices. This is helpful for building ontologies. That said, software development is a deregulated engineering process, and many successful software ventures have succeeded by ignoring or incorporating bits and pieces of unacknowledged standards work ��� sometimes creating new de facto standards in the process. The purpose of this track is to help potential IoT ontology developers understand the standards landscape ��� both official and de facto.

���Survey ���official��� IoT standards
���Identify de facto standards
���Identify related standards, projects, bodies not officially designed as IoT or WoT
���Highlight domains where ontology efforts:
(1) are most needed; (2) have harmonious partnership opportunities; (3) available subcomponents
���Discuss Challenges: Power mgmt., security, signal post-processing, provenance, signal quality, discovery, metadata, network issues, Big Data
���Related work: Modsim (e.g., Yang Song, et al. 2012, Sensor Fusion, Linked Open Data, augmented reality, Software Defined Networks (SDN)
���Lessons from history: middleware, intelligent agents, CEP, embedded systems, DoD fusion
���Retrospective: Related Lessons from Ontology Big Data 2014

  • Dial-in:     (1F5)
    • Phone (US): +1 (425) 440-5100 ... (long distance cost may apply)     (1F5A)
    • Skype: join.conference (i.e. make a skype call to the contact with skypeID="join.conference") ... (generally free-of-charge, when connecting from your computer ... ref.)     (1F5B)
      • when prompted enter Conference ID: 843758#     (1F5B1)
      • Unfamiliar with how to do this on Skype? ...     (1F5B2)
        • Add the contact "join.conference" to your skype contact list first. To participate in the teleconference, make a skype call to "join.conference", then open the dial pad (see platform-specific instructions below) and enter the Conference ID: 843758# when prompted.     (1F5B2A)
      • Can't find Skype Dial pad? ...     (1F5B3)
        • for Windows Skype users: Can't find Skype Dial pad? ... it's under the "Call" dropdown menu as "Show Dial pad"     (1F5B3A)
        • for Linux Skype users: please note that the dial-pad is only available on v4.1 (or later; or on the earlier Skype versions 2.x,) if the dialpad button is not shown in the call window you need to press the "d" hotkey to enable it. ... (ref.)     (1F5B3B)
    • instructions: once you got access to the page, click on the "settings" button, and identify yourself (by modifying the Name field from "anonymous" to your real name, like "JaneDoe").     (1F6A)
    • You can indicate that you want to ask a question verbally by clicking on the "hand" button, and wait for the moderator to call on you; or, type and send your question into the chat window at the bottom of the screen.     (1F6B)
    • thanks to the folks, one can now use a jabber/xmpp client (e.g. gtalk) to join this chatroom. Just add the room as a buddy - (in our case here) ... Handy for mobile devices!     (1F6C)
  • Discussions and Q & A:     (1F7)
    • Nominally, when a presentation is in progress, the moderator will mute everyone, except for the speaker.     (1F7A)
    • To un-mute, press "*7" ... To mute, press "*6" (please mute your phone, especially if you are in a noisy surrounding, or if you are introducing noise, echoes, etc. into the conference line.)     (1F7B)
    • we will usually save all questions and discussions till after all presentations are through. You are encouraged to jot down questions onto the chat-area in the mean time (that way, they get documented; and you might even get some answers in the interim, through the chat.)     (1F7C)
    • During the Q&A / discussion segment (when everyone is muted), If you want to speak or have questions or remarks to make, please raise your hand (virtually) by clicking on the "hand button" (lower right) on the chat session page. You may speak when acknowledged by the session moderator (again, press "*7" on your phone to un-mute). Test your voice and introduce yourself first before proceeding with your remarks, please. (Please remember to click on the "hand button" again (to lower your hand) and press "*6" on your phone to mute yourself after you are done speaking.)     (1F7D)
  • Please note that this session may be recorded, and if so, the audio archive is expected to be made available as open content, along with the proceedings of the call to our community membership and the public at-large under our prevailing open IPR policy.     (1F11)
