We had another wonderful session today. Dr. E. Michael Maximilien
from IBM Research organized and moderated our the session,
entitled: "Ontologizing the Ontolog Body of Knowledge -
Discussion Session-2 - Tools, Techniques, and Approaches Panel".
Panelists featured in the session included Dr. John 'Boz'
Handy-Bosma (IBM Global Services), Mr. Conor Shankey (Visual
Knowledge), Mr. W. Scott Spangler (IBM Research) and Mr. Peter
Mika (Free University, Amsterdam, Netherlands). (01)
Our appreciation goes out to Dr. Maximilien and all our
distinguished. Collectively, they exposed us to a whole variety
of tools, techniques and approaches -- from tested and field
proven ones, to some that are emerging. The briefs from our panel
was followed by a very lively discussion too. And, as always, we
thank all the participants who joint us and contributed their
valuable insights. (02)
Proceedings of our 2006.07.06 session are captured in the wiki
In particular, full audio recording of the session, along with
the panelists' slides, are now available - see:
The podcast is already online too! (04)
Best regards. =ppy (05)
P.S. Please note that Dr. Patrick Cassidy of MITRE will be with
us next Thursday, July 13, 2006, to present a talk on: "Defining
Vocabularies, Ontological and Linguistic: A Tool for Ontologizing
Ontolog" where he will explore with us, formal ontological
approach and an effective alternative that might help us get the
job done effectively. Please mark your calendars now and watch
out for the announcements (which will be out real soon) on that

>> Our second panel discussion (and the 9th event) in the "Ontologizing
>> the Ontolog Body of Knowledge" series is coming up this Thursday,
>> 06-July-2006. We will, again, be engaging invited experts and members
>> of the community to discuss the "what's" and "how's" to the
>> development of a semantically interoperable application, using the
>> improved access to the content of Ontolog as a case in point.
>> Dr. E. Michael Maximilien from the IBM Almaden Research Center is our
>> organizer for this session. He will be focusing on Tools, Techniques,
>> and Approaches to the matter at hand.
>> * Topic: "Ontologizing the Ontolog Body of Knowledge - Discussion
>> Session 2 - Tools, Techniques, and Approaches Panel"
>> * Moderator: E. Michael Maximilien (IBM Research)
>> * Panelists will include: John 'Boz' Handy-Bosma (IBM Global

>> * Abstract (by EMichaelMaximilien):
>> In this panel we want to investigate tools, techniques, and approaches
>> that can help us in the task at hand and address the rich spectrum of
>> semantics that the ONTOLOG forum content covers. In particular we
>> would like to look into:
>> o (1) Tools to create formal and semi-formal knowledge
>> representation (KR), e.g., OWL, Protégé, and so on
>> o (2) Tools and services to create free-form annotations of
>> contents, e.g., deli.cio.us, Flykr, and others, resulting in folksonomies
>> o (3) Research, techniques, and tools (if any) to help make sense of
>> resulting folksonomies and ontologies
>> o (4) Automated techniques, tools, and research approaches to mine
>> structure in unstructured text such as the ONTOLOG Wiki, e.g., UIMA,
>> podzinger for podcast to text translation, and others
>> o (5) ''Semantically-rich next generation collaborative platforms,
>> e.g. semantic Wikis or other emerging web 2.0 tools
