Thank you very much, Dr. Uschold for sharing with us your insight
through a most interesting semantic technology application.
Thanks also, to all who called in today, and contributed to a
very lively discussion during the talk. (01)
Material from Mike Uschold's talk is available on our session
wiki page at:
... in particular, the digitized (mp3) audio recording of the
entire talk and the ensuing discussion has now been posted. That
will be archived in our knowledge repository for reference and
download by anyone interested. Additionally, for the next 10
days, telephone playback will also available. See details at:
Thanks & regards. =ppy (04)
P.S. Our invited speaker for next month will be Monica Martin
from Sun Microsystems. Monica's talk will be on Thursday May 12,
2005. Please mark your calendars now, and watch out for coming
announcements on additional details. =ppy

> published documents and 2) the subscriptions specifying the class of

> scenarios showing how this filtering capability could be used in
> practice. He and his co-authors critically analyzed the suitability of a

> choices (OWL, FaCT and OilEd) for performing this task. A key result of

> focus of the research community.
> **About the Speaker:**
> Dr. Michael Uschold is a research scientist at Boeing Phantom Works, the
> advanced research and development organization of The Boeing Company.
> His interests center around the field concerned with the development and
> application of ontologies. This includes the emerging Semantic Web,
> semantic integration, knowledge management, and more recently, in the
> area of world modeling for autonomous vehicle navigation. For over two
> decades, Mike has been involved in a wide range of activities in these
> areas, including research, applications and teaching. Dr. Uschold is on
> the industrial advisory boards of various projects and initiatives
> related to the Semantic Web and other knowledge technologies. He is very
> active in organizing and participating in workshops and conferences on
> these topics.
> He received his B.S. in mathematics and physics at Canisis College in
> Buffalo, N.Y in 1977, a Masters in computer science from Rutgers
> University in 1982, and a PhD in Artificial Intelligence from The
> University of Edinburgh in 1991. Before arriving at the Boeing Company
