Question 2c Expertise Self Assessment - With respect to the perspective you are representing and providing input from, I am a/an:     (1A39)

[ ] 1. informed layman     (1A40)

[X] 2. practitioner     (1A41)

[ ] 3. expert     (1A42)

[ ] 4. other (please specify): (Not Answered)     (1A43)

Question 3a Ontology Value -     (1A44)

"1. Modeling business rules     (1A45)

2. Modeling decision trees     (1A46)

3. Reasoning over faceted taxonomies/thesauri - Ontologies are good at     (1A47)

mapping terms between facets. For example, delivering appropriate     (1A48)

content based on someone's background would require a mapping     (1A49)

between two facets,     (1A50)

(1) a person's skill, and     (1A51)

(2) content type.     (1A52)

4. Customizing semantic relationships - Taxonomies are constructed using     (1A53)

the simple semantic relationship of hierarchy. Often, there is a need     (1A54)

to express a different kind of term relationship. This special relationship     (1A55)

is an ontological relationship and could be considered a Business Rule in     (1A56)

some cases. These should be used conservatively. Simple vocabularies and     (1A57)

hierarchies are the easiest, most maintainable solution."     (1A58)

Question 3b Ontology Issues -     (1A59)

"We're still sorting out the simple taxonomy foundation. We're not yet     (1A60)

ready to do the mappings between facets using ontologies. However,     (1A61)

we could be using ontologies for modeling business rules today.     (1A62)

A lack of knowledge and expertise prevents this. Also, I think     (1A63)

a lack of tools (or awareness of those tools) with the     (1A64)

needed reasoning capabilities prevents this work."     (1A65)

Question 3c Ontology Problems -     (1A66)

"How to model business rules."     (1A67)

Question 3d Corresponding Solutions -     (1A68)

"No. It's not really something I am responsible for solving,     (1A69)

so I have not looked into it."     (1A70)

Question 4aGlossary - Ontology-related 'vocabulary' and representative 'artifact' from your constituency or community:     (1A71)

Term: Ontology     (1A72)

Gloss: [1] A controlled vocabulary that models non-hierarchical     (1A73)

(non-taxonomic, non-partonomic, non-instantative)     (1A74)

relationships between terms; often used in support     (1A75)

of taxonomic schemes     (1A76)

[2] a classification scheme used to model mappings     (1A77)

between a faceted clas...     (1A78)

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?     (1A82)

[ ] 1. 1 - totally unlikely     (1A83)

[ ] 2. 2 - rarely     (1A84)

[ ] 3. 3 - sometimes     (1A85)

Question 4bGlossary - Ontology-related 'vocabulary' and representative 'artifact' from your constituency or community:     (1A90)

Term: Thesaurus     (1A91)

Gloss: A controlled vocabulary used for information retrieval by     (1A92)

providing metadata values for index and classifying resources     (1A93)

and browsing collections.     (1A94)

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?     (1A98)

[ ] 1. 1 - totally unlikely     (1A99)

[ ] 2. 2 - rarely     (1A100)

[ ] 3. 3 - sometimes     (1A101)

[X] 4. 4 - quite often     (1A102)

[ ] 5. 5 - almost always     (1A103)

Question 4b2 Additional Remarks -     (1A104)

"Thesauri consist of more than strictly hierarchical relationships     (1A105)

(taxonomic, partonomic, instantative) by including Related Terms and     (1A106)

Scope Notes. These additional relationships could be considered the     (1A107)

beginning of an ontological scheme because they are mapping customized     (1A108)

semantic relationships. In fact, ontologies simply specify with more     (1A109)

precision the different types of Related Terms within a Thesaurus."     (1A110)
