> *Dr. Patrick Cassidy* Dr. Patrick Cassidy received his Ph.D. 
 > in Chemistry from Harvard University in 1971, and started his
 > professional career as a biochemist in the research labs
 > at Merck pharmaceuticals. He became increasingly
 > intrigued by the potential of computer intelligence,
 > and took an early retirement from Merck in 1993 to devote
 > full time to research in natural language understanding and
 > knowledge representation. He has been involved in building
 > ontologies since 1995. Since late 2004 he has been
 > working at MITRE as a Senior Artificial Intelligence
 > Engineer. Prior to that, he was an ontologist at VerticalNet,
 > one of the pioneers in applying ontological engineering to
 > eBusiness solutions. Dr. Cassidy has been playing an active
 > leadership role in the ontology community, which include
 > his founding and chairing of the ONTACWG (Ontology and
 > Taxonomy Coordinating Working Group) of SICoP; as well as
 > his key contribution in organizing the recent
 > Upper Ontology Summit. He considers it his mission to help
 > at least one upper ontology become sufficiently widely adopted
 > to attract vendors and academic groups, to use it and
 > demonstrate the networking benefits of a common
 > conceptual language for knowledge-based programs.    (011)
