Question 4a2 Additional Remarks -     (1A70)

"This term and definition is applied in all worlds of semantic interoperability,     (1A71)

knowledge engineering, systems architecture and engineering. It is believed that     (1A72)

this definition is the only one (that I know of) that reflects the necessary     (1A73)

conceptualizations (e.g. intensional vs. extensional conceptualization) required     (1A74)

for addressing semantic interoperability issues in SOA, e-commerce,     (1A75)

federated systems, standards bodies, etc. etc. It has been used to help     (1A76)

characterize sources of error for semantic interoperability and for the     (1A77)

creation of semantic interoperability measures, with measurement theory.     (1A78)

It has been used in the context of other terms of interest where the     (1A79)

associated artifacts of these terms, e.g. taxonomy, may be used in a     (1A80)

ontology lifecycle methodology as preliminary artifacts in the     (1A81)

process of creating the final product - an ontology.     (1A82)

The definition, actually the "Guarino School of Ontology" is being used     (1A83)

as a part of a formal grounding for an (Inter-)Enterprise Systems     (1A84)

(general systems-theoretic sense) Theory merging technology, knowledge,     (1A85)

law, economics, communication(s) etc."     (1A86)
