[ ] 3. expert     (1A43)

[ ] 4. other (please specify): (Not Answered)     (1A44)

Question 3a Ontology Value -     (1A45)

"It takes the complexity, confusion and guess work out of ontology construction     (1A46)

by allowing the Mark 3 platform to self-build and orgainize ontologies into     (1A47)

high fidelity knowledgebase products."     (1A48)

Question 3b Ontology Issues -     (1A49)

"Since the Mark 3 platform is not in beta and people cannot use it to test     (1A50)

our assertions, there is no reason for them to stop using currently     (1A51)

available ontology software."     (1A52)

Question 3c Ontology Problems -     (1A53)

Question 3d Corresponding Solutions -     (1A55)

"Only Knowledge Foundations' Mark 3 theory-based semantic technology."     (1A56)

Question 4aGlossary - Ontology-related 'vocabulary' and representative 'artifact' from your constituency or community:     (1A57)

Term: Machine understandable concept     (1A58)

Gloss: (Not Answered)     (1A59)

Reference (citation/url): (Not Answered)     (1A60)

Artifact (name/version): (Not Answered)     (1A61)

- Artifact Ref. (url): (Not Answered)     (1A62)

Question 4a1 Called An Ontology - On a scale of 1 to 5, (where 1 means totally unlikely and 5 means almost always), would the above term or artifact be referred to as an "ontology" in your community?     (1A63)

[ ] 1. 1 - totally unlikely     (1A64)

[ ] 2. 2 - rarely     (1A65)

[ ] 3. 3 - sometimes     (1A66)

[ ] 4. 4 - quite often     (1A67)

[X] 5. 5 - almost always     (1A68)

Question 4a2 Additional Remarks -     (1A69)

"To us, ontologies have nothing to do with language, they have everything to do     (1A70)

with the language of thought. An ontology, machine understood concept, is     (1A71)

defined according to its relationship to other concepts, ideas and     (1A72)

thought patterns. It is not descriptive."     (1A73)

Question 4bGlossary - Ontology-related 'vocabulary' and representative 'artifact' from your constituency or community:     (1A74)

Term: only words     (1A75)

Gloss: (Not Answered)     (1A76)

Question 4b1 Called An Ontology - On a scale of 1 to 5, (where 1 means totally unlikely and 5 means almost always), would the above term or artifact be referred to as an "ontology" in your community?     (1A80)

[X] 1. 1 - totally unlikely     (1A81)

[ ] 2. 2 - rarely     (1A82)

[ ] 3. 3 - sometimes     (1A83)

[ ] 4. 4 - quite often     (1A84)

[ ] 5. 5 - almost always     (1A85)

Question 4b2 Additional Remarks -     (1A86)

"Language is ambiguous and arbitrary, therefore ontologies that are     (1A87)

langugage-based are descriptive, usually based on logic and therefore     (1A88)

artificial. Axiomatic, language of thought ontologies, are value and     (1A89)

time based and correspond to a quantum world."     (1A90)

Question 4cGlossary - Ontology-related 'vocabulary' and representative 'artifact' from your constituency or community:     (1A91)

Term: Machine understood concept.     (1A92)

Question 4c1 Called An Ontology - On a scale of 1 to 5, (where 1 means totally unlikely and 5 means almost always), would the above term or artifact be referred to as an "ontology" in your community?     (1A97)

[ ] 1. 1 - totally unlikely     (1A98)

[ ] 2. 2 - rarely     (1A99)

[ ] 3. 3 - sometimes     (1A100)

[ ] 4. 4 - quite often     (1A101)

[X] 5. 5 - almost always     (1A102)

Question 4c2 Additional Remarks -     (1A103)

"In addition to language limits, structured software environments also     (1A104)

restrict the development of high fidelity ontologies because conventional     (1A105)

technologies cannot scale to integrate every possible ontological relationship     (1A106)

necessary to precisely convey its meaning. In this regard, also, logic     (1A107)

plays a dominant role in W3C ontology construction, yet logic represents     (1A108)

only a small part in a quantum world."     (1A109)
