OpenOntologyRepository: OOR Content Workshop-III - Tue 2012_06_26     (1)

Continuing from the last (2012.05.29) OOR-Content workshop, this is our 3rd OOR-content workshop, with a focus on bringing together user communities who would be putting ontology contents into OOR instances. We will discuss how best to approach that, and how the OOR design and implementation can best serve their needs. This session will also discuss the coordination of content among various OOR instances.     (1A)

Topic: OOR Content Workshop-III: "Coordinating the OOR Content Drive"     (1B)

Session Co-chairs: MichaelGruninger (U of Toronto) & MikeDean (Raytheon-BBN)     (1C)

OOR Content Workshop-III - Tue 2012_06_26     (1H19)

Topic: OOR Content Workshop-III: "Coordinating the OOR Content Drive"     (1H20)

Session Co-chairs: Michael Grüninger (U of Toronto) & Mike Dean (Raytheon-BBN)     (1H21)

Mute control: *7 to un-mute ... *6 to mute     (1H23)

Can't find Skype Dial pad? ... it's under the "Call" dropdown menu as "Show Dial pad"     (1H24)

Proceedings:     (1H25)

anonymous morphed into Tom Tinsley     (1H26)

anonymous morphed into Mike Bennett     (1H27)

anonymous morphed into Frank Olken     (1H28)

Michael Grüninger: FIBO ontologies from Mike Bennett will be uploaded to the sandbox instance     (1H29)

Mike Bennett: Sign-up process: the 'input text' widget is not working at present.     (1H31)

Peter P. Yim: Mike Dean (or KenBaclawski) will help Mike Bennett with the upload (to the OOR sandbox) where necessary     (1H32)

Michael Grüninger / Mike Dean: good opportunity for paper on interaction of (user-defined) ontology modules     (1H33)

and ontology repositories     (1H34)

Mike Dean: existing research has focused more on algorithms for decomposing ontologies into modules     (1H35)

Mike Dean: could be used for NASA SWEET, etc.     (1H37)

Peter P. Yim: the need for both "ontology modules" as well as "super domain ontologies" (as MITRE calls the latter)     (1H38)

Mike Bennett: Vision for a federation of industry-led ontology standards covering common concepts which     (1H39)

may be federated and referred to in deeper domain ontologies.     (1H40)

Mike Bennett: Taking industry bodies as the appropriate authority for the meanings of terms     (1H41)

Mike Bennett: Meanwhile for meaningful terms in our (FIBO) ontologies we have had to define more abstract terms, up to the level of 'archetypcai' terms e.g. for commitments, transactions, contracts, places etc.     (1H42)

Mike Bennett: So for example a financial ontology has bonds, shares etc., but these are all actually contracts.     (1H43)

Mike Bennett: We have done some exciting work in aligning terms between the REA ontology and an XBRL view     (1H44)

of the world, using high level partitions and archetypes to show how terms in one may be     (1H45)

described with reference to the other, and the whole provides the atomic building blocks     (1H46)

for concepts we draw upon in financial services.     (1H47)

Mike Bennett: Similarly, we have a need for ontologies in real estate, construction etc. in order to     (1H48)

create new models of Loans.     (1H49)

Peter P. Yim: Michael Grüninger: the "value add" of an Ontology Repositories     (1H50)

Peter P. Yim: coordinating content "federation"     (1H51)

anonymous morphed into Shannon Copeland     (1H53)

Peter P. Yim: == Tom Tinsley: intro ... Enterprise architecture as an upper ontology     (1H54)

Terry Longstreth: @Tom - is your otter(?) demo publicly accessible? can you give us a URL?     (1H55)

Tom Tinsley: The OTTER project was presented at KEOD 2011.     (1H56)

The name is derived from Ontology Technology That Executes Real-time.     (1H57)

Peter P. Yim: @Tom - would be great if you can give a talk to the community about it some time,     (1H58)

especially if this is an open project     (1H59)

Peter P. Yim: == Shannon Copeland: intro ... doing a startup in the legal side of things, risk, contract,     (1H60)

... (Shannon met Mike Bennett at SemTech)     (1H61)

Shannon Copeland: my email is scopeland [at]     (1H62)

Bob Smith: Hi Shannon - Ryan Caulker, Esq., of Natl Institute of Building Sciences, has created     (1H63)

a workgroup formalizing risk levels in high performance building projects.     (1H64)

I'm the terminology guy on the subcommittee     (1H65)

Shannon Copeland: Bob, can you share your email as well?     (1H66)

Bob Smith: mine - Bob [at]     (1H67)

Mike Bennett: @BobSmith Is there an ontology for construction concepts which can be considered as canonical?     (1H68)

We need to not reinvent such terms for construction loans and other loan types     (1H69)

(per the MISMO logical / message standards which we are ontologizing).     (1H70)

Mike Bennett: NSF Earth Cube project - is this an ontology project?     (1H71)

Peter P. Yim: Not exactly, it is more like a eScience (for Geo-scientists) + Information Portal project.     (1H72)

There is a fairly strong "Ontology & Smeantics" component to it - see:     (1H73)

Mike Bennett: (ref. PeterYim's discussion on possibilities on collaborating with     (1H74)

Something you should pursue on government data is the NIEM initiative.     (1H75)

Mike Bennett: NIEM is currently logical data but there is an interest within the OMG folks working this,     (1H76)

to consider OWL at some point - I don't have details as I'm not involved, the best person     (1H77)

to speak to is CoryCasanave.     (1H78)

Mike Bennett: Super-domain ontologies and upper ontologies are key to developing interoperable ontologies     (1H79)

in whatever field.     (1H80)

Mike Bennett: I think a lot of commercial consultancies will be interested in pursuing     (1H81)

the combination of big data and ontologies. Linking with statistics is also     (1H82)

a growing area of interest in people we have been speaking to     (1H83)

(and of course in Watson, Google etc.).     (1H84)

Peter P. Yim: "OOR for 'Big Data' session" now scheduled for Tue 2012.08.14     (1H85)

Peter P. Yim: making this an Joint OOR-Ontolog session     (1H86)

Peter P. Yim: Mike Dean will chair and will mull over the content for this session between now and then     (1H87)

Terry Longstreth: With potential follow-up at next onto summit     (1H88)

Peter P. Yim: Michael Grüninger will continue to follow-up with Pat Cassidy and Denise Bedford on driving "content"     (1H89)

Peter P. Yim: Regular monthly OOR team meeting same time next Tuesday 2012.07.03 ... talk to you all then     (1H90)

Peter P. Yim: -- session ended: 9:43am PDT --     (1H91)

-- end of in-session chat-transcript --     (1H92)

4. Action Plans:     (1H93)

5. Schedule Next Meeting & Adjourn:     (1H97)

  • need to fix a date for the "OOR for 'Big Data' session" (this was originally scheduled for 2012.06.19, with MikeDean's agreement, the slot for which was later given to the joint SOCoP-OOR spatial ontology - Torsten Hahmann talk.)     (1H98)

notes taken by: Peter P. Yim / 2012.06.26-10:05am PDT     (1H102)

All participants, please review and edit to enhance accuracy and granularity of the documented proceedings.     (1H103)
