Abstract     (1J)

Making use of Ontologies: Tools, Services, and Techniques - II ... intro slides     (1J1)

This is our 9th Ontology Summit, a joint initiative by Ontolog, NIST, NCOR, NCBO, IAOA & NCO_NITRD with the support of our co-sponsors.     (1J2)

Since the beginnings of the Semantic Web, ontologies have played key roles in the design and deployment of new semantic technologies. Yet over the years, the level of collaboration between the Semantic Web and Applied Ontology communities has been much less than expected. Within Big Data applications, ontologies appear to have had little impact.     (1J3)

This year's Ontology Summit is an opportunity for building bridges between the Semantic Web, Linked Data, Big Data, and Applied Ontology communities. On the one hand, the Semantic Web, Linked Data, and Big Data communities can bring a wide array of real problems (such as performance and scalability challenges and the variety problem in Big Data) and technologies (automated reasoning tools) that can make use of ontologies. On the other hand, the Applied Ontology community can bring a large body of common reusable content (ontologies) and ontological analysis techniques. Identifying and overcoming ontology engineering bottlenecks is critical for all communities.     (1J4)

Ontology Summit 2014 will pose and address the primary challenges in these areas of interaction among the different communities. The Summit activities will bring together insights and methods from these different communities, synthesize new insights, and disseminate knowledge across field boundaries.     (1J5)

The key research question of Track B (Making use of Ontologies: Tools, Services, and Techniques) is: what potential has Big Data for ontology-based services, and how can ontology tools and techniques be scaled to the Semantic Web and Big Data. The first three presentations feature innovative research and development of tools, services, and techniques, respectively. The first presentation will be about an enterprise platform that integrates and enhances several well-known ontology tools. The second presentation addresses the combination of linked data technology with web services. The third presentation presents a technique for engineering linked data vocabularies, i.e. lightweight ontologies that scale to the Web. The last presentation is about a service once more; however a service that immediately targets end users, in this specific case people interested in jazz.     (1J6)

These presentations will be followed by an open discussion on how to apply, reuse and evolve the tools, services and techniques presented.     (1J7)

See more details at: OntologySummit2014 (homepage for this summit)     (1J8)

Briefings     (1J9)

  • MikeBergman (Structured Dynamics LLC, USA) - "OSF (Open Semantic Framework): An Ontology-driven Semantic Platform for Enterprises" ... slides     (1J9A)
    • Abstract: The Open Semantic Framework is a complete and integrated software stack to bring semantic technology capabilities to the enterprise. OSF combines best-of-class open source engines with specific Web service and other enhancements developed by Structured Dynamics. OSF v 3.0 is supported by a complete 500 document knowledge base covering all aspects of installation, use and best practices. The presentation will discuss OSF's architecture and components and briefly showcase notable instances.     (1J9A1)
  • JoseMariaGarcia (STI Innsbruck, Austria) - "Linked Services Initiatives: Lightweight semantics for services on the Web of Data" ... slides     (1J9B)
    • Abstract: Ontologies and semantic technologies have been applied to Web services in order to automatize discovery, composition and invocation processes, among others. However, this so-called Semantic Web Services vision failed in terms of uptake, mainly because it was built on top of the classical Web service technology stack, which has arguably failed, too. Furthermore, the complex reasoning support needed also harmed its adoption. Nowadays, Linked Data has become the major success on the applicability and uptake of (lightweight) semantics in industry. Following this trend, Linked Services initiatives offer better chances for the original SWS vision to become a reality. In this presentation we will describe these initiatives and the future development envisioned.     (1J9B1)
  • MariaPovedaVillalon (Ontology Engineering Group, Universidad Polit��cnica de Madrid, Spain) - "A Reuse-based Lightweight Method for Developing Linked Data Ontologies and Vocabularies" ... slides     (1J9C)
    • Abstract: The uptake of Linked Data (LD) has promoted the proliferation of datasets and their associated ontologies for describing different domains. Particular LD development characteristics such as agility and web-based architecture necessitate the revision, adaption, and lightening of existing methodologies for ontology development. This thesis proposes a lightweight method for ontology development in an LD context which will be based in data-driven agile developments, existing resources to be reused, and the evaluation of the obtained products considering both classical ontological engineering principles and LD characteristics.     (1J9C1)

  • Mute control (phone keypad): *7 to un-mute ... *6 to mute     (1L2W)

(i.e. even if it says it is "offline," you should still be able to connect to it.)     (1L2Z)

VoIP line, etc.) either your phone, skype-out or google-voice and call the US dial-in number: +1 (206) 402-0100     (1L2AB)

... when prompted enter Conference ID: 141184#     (1L2AC)

  • when posting in this Chat-room, kindly observe the following ...     (1L2AG)
    • whenever a name is used, please use the full WikiWord name format (every time you don't, some volunteer will have to make an edit afterwards)     (1L2AH1)
    • always provide context (like: "[ref. JaneDoe's slide#12], I think the point about context is great" ... rather than "that's great!"     (1L2AI1)

[9:27] anonymous morphed into Anett Hoppe     (1L2AW)

[9:29] anonymous morphed into Maria Poveda     (1L2AX)

[9:31] Matthew West: Just a small thing about how to respond including the timestamp. We each get our     (1L2AAA)

local time, so at present the timestamp I am seeing is 16:30.     (1L2AAB)

[9:34] Peter P. Yim: good point, Matthew ... people can do something like [xx:31] or [+0:31], [+1:31]     (1L2AAC)

... anyhow, when I edit the transcript, I will convert them back to the same time-zone so that the     (1L2AAD)

transcript is "intelligible"     (1L2AAE)

[9:36] anonymous morphed into MikeBergman     (1L2AAF)

[9:37] anonymous morphed into JohnB     (1L2AAG)

[9:43] Peter P. Yim: @JohnB ... please morph into your full name (we use real names here, and that will     (1L2AAH)

allow everyone to know who you are, and to properly attribute your contributions) Thanks in advance.     (1L2AAI)

[11:31] Peter P. Yim: @JohnB ... I assume that's John Berezowski, right?     (1L2AAJ)

[11:32] JohnB: right     (1L2AAK)

[9:38] Peter P. Yim: == Christoph Lange starts the session ... see slides under:     (1L2AAL)

[9:44] anonymous morphed into Lamar Henderson     (1L2AAN)

[9:46] Peter P. Yim: == MikeBergman presenting ...     (1L2AAO)

[9:47] anonymous morphed into Mark Fox     (1L2AAP)

[9:50] anonymous morphed into Bobbin Teegarden     (1L2AAQ)

[9:54] Peter P. Yim: @MikeBergman - can you provide links to some of the ontologies that are used in the     (1L2AAR)

examples you have cited?     (1L2AAS)

[9:57] Todd Schneider: Yes, the actual ontologies not images. In particular, the relations.     (1L2AAT)

[9:59] Todd Schneider: MikeBergman, which reasoner(s) in used in OSF?     (1L2AAU)

[10:07] anonymous morphed into Les Morgan     (1L2AAV)

[10:07] Les Morgan: Regarding the Drupal integraton, has anyone attempted integrating OSF with     (1L2AAW)

Wordpress?     (1L2AAX)

[10:10] Dennis Wisnosky: How are Drupal and GitHub used together in OSF?     (1L2AAY)

[10:10] Todd Schneider: MikeBergman, is OSF focused on user 'read' interactions (i.e., users don't     (1L2AAZ)

modify the underlying data)?     (1L2AAAA)

[10:26] JaanaTakis: @MikeBergman. Drupal RDF support - was the maturity sufficient for what you     (1L2AAAB)

envisioned?     (1L2AAAC)

[10:35] Simon Spero: @DennisWisnosky [13:10]: GitHub is a system for supporting distributed software     (1L2AAAD)

development that happens to be where OSF is hosted. Drupal is a Content Management System.     (1L2AAAE)

[10:43] Dennis Wisnosky: @simonSpero: GitHub manages repositories. Repositories have content. Doesn't     (1L2AAAF)

this make GitHub a content management system?     (1L2AAAG)

[10:45] Dennis Wisnosky: GitHub as a CMS to end CMSes - Paul Hammant's blog     (1L2AAAH)

May 8, 2011 - Exec Summary GitHub can be used as a site serving tool. It is actually a pretty     (1L2AAAJ)

usable CMS even for non-technical folks. With some more ...     (1L2AAAK)

[11:30] MikeBergman: @DennisWisnosky: we use GitHub as our code repository, and not as a CMS; there     (1L2AAAL)

is no relation to Drupal     (1L2AAAM)

[10:18] anonymous morphed into JaanaTakis     (1L2AAAO)

[10:26] anonymous morphed into Conrad Beaulieu     (1L2AAAP)

[10:40] Peter P. Yim: @JoseMariaGarcia - in observing your KISS principle, do you run into problems with     (1L2AAAQ)

expressivity? (services can be complex to describe!)     (1L2AAAR)

[10:55] JoseMariaGarcia: @PeterYim [18:40]: Indeed, that may be a problem. That is why we are     (1L2AAAS)

looking at real examples and figuring out whether we can describe them in full or not. And so far     (1L2AAAT)

this methodology has been working well for us. Ultimately, the use of Linked Data principles will     (1L2AAAU)

always allow to link the description to more complex vocabularies (or ontologies, depending on the     (1L2AAAV)

definition from Maria Poveda ;) in case you need more details to be described.     (1L2AAAW)

[10:54] anonymous morphed into Vit Libal     (1L2AAAZ)

[10:55] Peter P. Yim: @MariaPoveda, (slide#9) can you repeat the acronym that you are using for the     (1L2AAAAA)

methodology that you are proposing, please? (missed that when you presented that verbally)     (1L2AAAAB)

[10:55] Christoph Lange: I think the acronym was LOT = Linked Open Terms     (1L2AAAAC)

[10:57] Peter P. Yim: @ChristophLange, thank you     (1L2AAAAD)

[11:12] Maria Poveda: Yes, the acronym is LOT Linked Open Terms     (1L2AAAAE)

[11:07] Nancy Wiegand: @current speaker or anyone, How do you find URIs already used in linked data     (1L2AAAAF)

that could be used for your own data? Are tools being written to search the LOD?     (1L2AAAAG)

[11:12] Peter P. Yim: == Cristina Pattuelli does not seem to have been able to join us ... so moving on     (1L2AAAAI)

[11:12] Peter P. Yim: == Q & A and Open Discussion ...     (1L2AAAAJ)

[11:14] Les Morgan: @MikeBergman: has anyone tried integrating OSF with the Wordpress CMS rather than     (1L2AAAAK)

the Drupal CMS? Wordpress is much more widely used.     (1L2AAAAL)

[11:23] Les Morgan: the link shows comparative interest in Drupal vs Wordpress     (1L2AAAAN)

[11:23] Les Morgan: graph shows Drupal has a declining popularity index, while Wordpress has strong growth     (1L2AAAAO)

[11:24] Les Morgan: Porting some of the Drupal front-end plugins might not be very difficult     (1L2AAAAP)

[11:31] MikeBergman: @LesMorgan: we have a PHP API that should work well with WP, though I don't     (1L2AAAAQ)

know of anyone who has done so     (1L2AAAAR)

[11:34] Les Morgan: Mike, I will pursue the API with you directly. We have a current development requirement.     (1L2AAAAS)

[11:13] Dennis Wisnosky: @MariaPoveda: Shima Dastgheib is doing work that is related,     (1L2AAAAT)

minus the Ontology quality work.     (1L2AAAAU)

[11:07] JaanaTakis: @MariaPoveda, are you aware of any plans to develop tools that would follow this     (1L2AAAAV)

methodology, or incorporate the approach into existing tools? Is it an aim?     (1L2AAAAW)

[11:14] Maria Poveda: @JaanaTakis, I plan to develop some missing parts and try to integrate with the     (1L2AAAAX)

systems that are already there     (1L2AAAAY)

[11:14] Maria Poveda: for example I have integrated TripleChecker into OOPS! already     (1L2AAAAZ)

[11:15] JaanaTakis: @MariaPoveda, what is a good link to stay informed of any further developments on this?     (1L2AAAAAA)

[11:16] Maria Poveda: @JaanaTakis, as you have asked for it I'll set up a website, so far my only     (1L2AAAAAB)

development is about ontology evaluation and you can follow news at twitter     (1L2AAAAAC)

[11:17] JaanaTakis: thank you!     (1L2AAAAAE)

[11:18] Maria Poveda: welcome :-)     (1L2AAAAAF)

[11:21] Christoph Lange: FYI Track D on "Variety": search     (1L2AAAAAG) for "Variety" to see what has happened so far there?     (1L2AAAAAH)

[11:23] Christoph Lange: Neologism is a Drupal-based editor for vocabularies     (1L2AAAAAJ)

[10:22] Simon Spero: @MikeBergman: Looking at the OSF, it looks like some of the ontologies are not RDF compatible OWL2     (1L2AAAAAK)

[10:24] Simon Spero: @MikeBergman: e.g. iron:altLabel is a declared a datatype property, which has an     (1L2AAAAAM)

owl:equivalentProperty declaration to skos:altLabel, which is an annotation property.     (1L2AAAAAN)

[11:26] MikeBergman: @SimonSpero: good catch on iron; we actually use that vocabulary offline as a     (1L2AAAAAO)

means of migrating XML, CSV or JSON data to our triple store     (1L2AAAAAP)

[11:27] Terry Longstreth: [on the verbal remark from Maria Poveda that she does not consider Protege     (1L2AAAAAQ)

"heavy-weight," but Christoph Lange countered that Protege may already be "heavy-weight"] Protege may     (1L2AAAAAR)

not be heavy-weight to a rising Ontology PhD, but it's not intuitive to the journeyman programmer.     (1L2AAAAAS)

[11:32] Peter P. Yim: @ALL: if you are not subscribed to the [ontology-summit] mailing list yet, please     (1L2AAAAAT)
