Discussion     (2F)

[12:25] AlexShkotin: Let me answer to Janet and all after meeting in ontolog-forum google group     (2F1)

[12:32] Gary Berg-Cross: Some background for the Disaster and Risk topic(s) It involves Situations, participation and roles for example.     (2F2)

  • There are many ontologies for different types of disasters. For example An Overview of Biomedical Ontologies for Pandemics and Infectious Diseases Representation Leila Bayoudhia.     (2F3)
  • The high level model has 3 things:     (2F4)
    • The Agent answers the question what causes the infectious disease?. It can be a microorganism, a pathogen, a virus, a bacterium, a parasite, or other microbes. SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2 are examples of such agents.     (2F4A)
    • The host is the organism which answers the question who can be infected by a disease agent?. It can be a human or an animal.     (2F4B)
    • The third is the environment     (2F4C)
  • A major type of disasters concerns Disease. Early work includes Disease Ontology: a backbone for disease semantic integration. (Reference: Schriml, Lynn)     (2F5)
  • More recent work concerns COVID-19 ontologies.     (2F6)

The pandemic has prompted an impressive, worldwide response by the academic community. In order to support text mining approaches as well as data description, linking and harmonization in the context of COVID-19, we have developed an ontology representing major novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) entities. The ontology has a strong scope on chemical entities suited for drug repurposing, as this is a major target of ongoing COVID-19 therapeutic development.     (2F7)

  • The disaster topic also involves complex events as part to disaster situations.     (2F8)

[12:41] Robert Rovetto: If the topic of space (astro) was the question, then yes I have input because it is a focus area. Please see (Seeking support in form of formal work collaborations, a PhD studentship for myself, or sponsors since 2011. Please contact.)     (2F9)

[12:48] Robert Rovetto: re:disaster topics...I can also contribute to this, but in specific areas. I'm informed on data-sources and data content in those areas. I'm a subject matter expert in specific emergency response areas because I have training in very specific types of emergency first-response (in specific environments) through my volunteering. Aside from space, this emergency topic is a passion, and I can serve in it. I also have ontologies and papers on the shelf (open to support to sustainably develop).     (2F10)

[12:50] Robert Rovetto: There should not be an OBO bias or focus...nor any other bias for a particular group or methodology.     (2F11)

[12:52] Robert Rovetto: very good point about different countries, languages, vocabularies     (2F12)

[12:52] RaviSharma: so the topic of Disasters and risks has to be tied to ontology and topics have to be filtered     (2F13)

[12:53] RaviSharma: there is there a notion of risk lifecycle implied?     (2F14)

[12:55] Robert Rovetto: Re:the disaster topic list on the sub-topic is space pollution. Please see my ontology articles on that topic (e.g., An Ontological Architecture of Orbital Debris Data (2015), and Orbital Debris Ontology, Terminology and Knowledge Modeling (2019/20)     (2F15)

[12:59] Robert Rovetto: FYI: in some IAOA groups, we are exploring concepts/themes/types/definitions of ontology     (2F16)

[13:02] AlexShkotin: Robert, how to join IAOA groups?     (2F17)

Ken Baclawski: For information about the IAOA groups see     (2F18)

The IAOA groups are on the IAOA Wiki at     (2F19)
