Douglas R. Miles: @Cas is where we been talking. Its a proxy to our Discord server.     (2D1)

KenBaclawski: === Ontology Generation and Harmonization ===     (2D2)

Ontologies are a rich and versatile construct. They can be extracted, learned, modularized, interrelated, transformed, analyzed, and harmonized as well as developed in a formal process. This summit will explore the many kinds of ontologies and how they can be manipulated. The goal is to acquaint both current and potential users of ontologies with the possibilities for how ontologies could be used for solving problems.     (2D3)

Different types of ontologies have different uses and require different techniques. Some major types include: foundational, reference, domain, and application ontologies. The different types overlap. This track will survey the landscape of ontology types and propose guidelines on how to identify the type of an ontology and how to use it.     (2D5)

A definition is a formal statement of the meaning or significance of an entity, including words, phrases, classes and properties. Accordingly, definitions can serve as links between formal ontologies and informal ontologies as well as between different formal ontologies. This track will survey the different notions and levels of formality of definitions.     (2D7)

Ontologies can now be created using automated techniques such as NLP and ML. This track will survey the current techniques and will propose guidelines on the most appropriate use of the techniques.     (2D9)

Neuro-symbolic and commonsense systems combine logic and language processing. These systems have been developed for a long time by the AI community. This track will examine how these AI techniques can be employed for ontology generation and harmonization.     (2D11)

Many organizations, including government agencies, standards bodies and commercial firms, use ontologies and have developed tools for various ontological activities, such as creation, evolution, mapping and other forms of harmonization. This track will survey organizations that have been most active in ontology engineering.     (2D13)

Duschletta: Sounds like Track A is exactly that, seeing the different use cases of the ontologies that exist     (2D14)

First-Order Deontic Alethic Logic (     (2D18)

Douglas R. Miles: Programming languages that are being introduced for BPM include: Business Process Execution Language (BPEL), Web Services Choreography Description Language (WS-CDL).     (2D20)

Duschletta: Bridging Ontologies     (2D21)

Douglas R. Miles:     (2D24)

Cassiopeia Miles: There does seem to be a cognitive dissonance with Track C and D in that to design a Track D process, which is a goal of many here, you would have a lot of Track C knowledge as a base.     (2D25)

Cassiopeia Miles: (Thank you both, I wasn't expecting to make such an impact on the scope. ) Duschletta: Thank you!!     (2D26)
