Discussion     (2E)

[11:57] Ravi Sharma: Hello and welcome, thanks Ken.     (2E1)

[12:15] Todd Schneider: Will 'particle' be defined? And what about scale or granularity (of particles)?     (2E2)

[12:17] Todd Schneider: An ontology is a model (or should be).     (2E3)

[12:19] Todd Schneider: Don't conflate or confuse 'ontology' with knowledge graph or graph database.     (2E4)

[12:33] Todd Schneider: Is there an assumption that the possibility of a (particular type of) disaster exists?     (2E5)

[12:51] Mark Fox: ISO/IEC JTC1 WG11 on Smart Cities is starting the development of an ontology for Public Health Emergencies. Used cases include: Contact Tracing, Disease Tracing, Testing Vaccine Distribution, Vaccination Management, Vaccine Efficacy management, Medical Personnel Management, Medical Resource Management     (2E6)

[12:57] Ram Sriram: Correction: When I said 30% of people who are vaccinated do not have enough antibodies, it is after 6 months of vaccination. This is based on a study done in India and published this week. Here is news item:     (2E7)

[12:58] Robert Rovetto: Unfortunately some of the semantic models assume/use upper ontologies, which is an often overlooked point, and can add to the challenge of mappings/harmonization/alignment.     (2E8)

[12:59] Mike Bennett: Surely the use of TLOs enables integration, since it makes the underlying nature of each conceptualization explicit.     (2E9)

[13:02] Ram Sriram: @Ravi: The problem with COVID is that even the terminology is constantly changing. For example, the mode of attack by the Delta variant is different than the Omicron variant. The Delta variant, I believe, needs a TMPRSS2 protein, while the Omicron doesn’t seem to need this to enter the cell.     (2E10)

[13:03] Mark Underwood: @Gary There's work in computational sustainability & constraint programming that I would like to see covered. CP is an adjacent domain . . . Best if I can find a presenter, but if not I can do a lit survey on this if that works. It feels like climate is the gorilla in this room.     (2E11)

[13:07] Robert Rovetto: @Mike: A problem with TLOs is that it is a highly abstract conceptualization, and thus there can be many. It provides a conceptualization, but that does not necessarily reflect the conceptualization of the more specific concepts.     (2E12)

[13:11] Robert Rovetto: @Mike, I didn't mention integration, e.g., I did not write "many [...] difficult."     (2E13)
