OntologySummit Launch Session - Thu 2015-01-15     (1)

Session Co-chairs: MarkUnderwood & MichaelGruninger (IAOA; U of Toronto)     (1A)

We are witnessing a new revolution in computing and communication. The Internet, which has spanned several networks in a wide variety of domains, is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives. The next generation of networks will utilize a wide variety of resources with significant sensing capabilities. Such networks will extend beyond physically linked computers to include multimodal information from biological, cognitive, semantic, and social networks. This paradigm shift will involve symbiotic networks of people, intelligent devices, and mobile personal computing and communication devices (mPCDs), which will form net-centric societies or smart networked systems and societies (SNSS). mPCDs are already equipped with a myriad of sensors, with regular updates of additional sensing capabilities. Additionally, we are witnessing the emergence of “intelligent devices,” such as smart meters, smart cars, etc., with considerable sensing and networking capabilities. Hence, these devices – and the network -- will be constantly sensing, monitoring, and interpreting the environment – this is sometimes referred to as the Internet of Things.     (1C)

OntologySummit2015 will explore how ontologies can play a significant role in the realization of smart networked systems and societies in the Internet of Things.     (1D)

Following earlier Ontology Summit practice, the synthesized results of this season's discourse will be published as a Communique.     (1E)
