April 20, 2006Sketch 11 Ontologizing Ontolog Content April 20, 2006 Sketch #1 A Roadmap to an Ontolog Thesaurus Bob Smith, Ph.D. Bob@1TallTrees.com CSU/Tall Tree Labs
April 20, 2006Sketch 12 Observations Denise Bedfords inventory of content indicates a very rich collection; Many different disciplines represented; Implies a great diversity of meanings; And an opportunity to consider: –Building on the Upper Ontology Summit treaty and next steps; –Developing a Taxo-Thesaurus project and conforming schema as a Roadmap/Decision Scenario using existing Ontological Roadmaps.
April 20, 2006Sketch 13 What questions to ask? What each answer might imply? Where are we now and where do we want or need to evolve in terms of an Ontology Roadmap? –Jim Hendler believes…..[ SemTech 06 ] –Leo Obrst believes…. [ Ontolog Forum 1-12-06 ] –Elisa Kendall & Debra McGuiness believes…Ontology 101 Revised [ SemTech 06 ] What resources does it take to move from one level to the next level? –Likely m with probability of p… In Healthcare IT, the Blackford Middleton $78 Billion advantage from transitioning US Healthcare from level 1 to 4 NASA Technology Readiness Level topics; OMB topics
April 20, 2006Sketch 14 Project Proposal part 1 1. Background issues : – Estimated Project Time and Effort (SIMPLE, 2-3 people, 10 hrs over 2-5 weeks??) – Scope and Audience: Users and their audience ( Domain List including MBAs as well as the usual AI, Linguistics, Logic, Math, Ontology domains) –Prior Efforts and Results (Google Search; Protégé Wiki, UM, Etc.) –http://ps1.cim3.net/ps.php?theurl=http://www.w3.org/TR/2004/R EC-webont-req-20040210/#purp290 –Current funded inititiatives ( IST Athena; IBM; SAP; Oracle, etc.) –http://www.sap.com/company/research/bpmsi/athena.epx
April 20, 2006Sketch 15 Project Proposal Part 2 2. Short Requirements Statement and Architectural Assumptions –Performance expectations (3-5 competency questions) –Alignments with related projects and Orchestration Mechanics of collaborative initiatives –Use Case examplars from W3C Ontology Best Practices? (N-Aries?)
April 20, 2006Sketch 16 Project Proposal Part 3 3. Thesaurus "Product" Design – Selection criteria for Schema 1 2 – Selection criteria for Schema Tools 1 2 – Acquisition of primary and secondary Tool Set
April 20, 2006Sketch 17 Project Proposal Part 4 4. Results – Ambiguity reductions – PoC (Proof of Concept) or FoC cycle – Demonstration of Competency cycle 5. Future Work and Contingencies –Workshop at Protégé 2006 Call for Participation –OASIS Interoperability Conference
