In philosophy: theory of what exists in the world (Aristotle, scholastics, Quine) consensual & formal description of shared concepts in a domainIn IT: consensual & formal description of shared concepts in a domain Aid to human communication and shared understanding, by specifying meaning Machine-processable (e.g., agents use ontologies in communication) Ontology = key technology in semantic information processing Applications: knowledge management, electronic business, multi- agent systems, industrial engineering, semantic world wide web Courtesy slide: Hans Akkermans Source: Financial Times, e-procurement, Oct. 2000
