We had, today (Thursday 10-May-2007), a wonderful session for
the 7th episode of the Ontolog mini-series on "Database and
Ontology." Dr. Matthew West (Shell International Petroleum
Company), again, presided over the session with invited speaker,
Professor Tatiana Malyuta from the New York City College of 
Technology, who presented her talk on "Interaction of Ontology 
and Database in the Information System."    (01)

Thank you, Professor Malyuta, for providing us a perspective on 
ontologies from the vantage point of a database person. Our 
appreciations to Dr. Matthew West, again, for championing this 
mini-series; and, as always, thanks to all the participants for 
joining us at the session.    (02)

Proceedings of the session are captured on our wiki page, at:

... Professor Tatiana Malyuta's contribution in the proceedings 
today is adding another important piece in the body of knowledge 
on ontology and ontological engineering that our community is 
building together. Thanks again!    (05)

 > Session Chair  : *Dr. Matthew West*
 >                    (Shell International Petroleum Co.)
 > Invited Speaker: *Professor Tatiana Malyuta* (CCNY)    (027)

 > Topic:
 > *Interaction of Ontology and Database*
 > *in the Information System*
 > *Abstract*: (by Tatiana Malyuta)
 > The presentation discusses some issues on the interaction of
 > Ontology and Database in Information Systems (IS):
 >   * Distribution of "responsibilities" between Ontology and
 > Database:
 >     o what are the role and place of Ontology in IS,
 >     o how much semantics to leave within the database, and
 >     o how to integrate the Database semantics with Ontology.
 >   * Symbiosis of Ontology and Database:
 >     o during the IS life-cycle,
 >     o how changes and growth of Database will affect Ontology,
 >     o how evolution of Ontology will be reflected in Database,
 >     o and how to support this relationship and benefit from it.
 >   * Using Ontology for efficient data utilization in general
 > and data integration in particular.
 >   * Using Ontology for support of Human-Computer Interfaces.
 > The discussion will relate to previous talks on this
 > mini-series about importance and benefits of ontology in IS,
 > using ontology in database design, communicating to the
 > database from ontology, and improving quality of data with
 > the help of ontology.

 > Tatiana Malyuta started her career in Ukraine. Her research,
 > industry and teaching experience and interests are connected to
 > data and databases. She has a PhD in Computer Science, and her
 > doctoral thesis dealt with presentation and management of
 > imprecise data in relational databases. She participated in
 > design and implementation of databases for numerous information
 > systems in Ukraine and later in USA. Her latest projects
 > involve design and implementation of metadata and ontology
 > for special applications, such as:
 >     o the Downtown Brooklyn project that prototypes a
 > media-rich interactive navigation system in a media-rich
 > document environment at New York City College of Technology.
 >     o the NSF Small Business Innovation Research Award 0060675
 > "Maximum Entropy Data De-Duplication" and Phase II 0216213 "A
 > Machine Learning Approach to Approximate Record Matching" at
 > ChoiceMaker Technologies Ltd.
 > Currently, Tatiana is an Associate Professor of Computer
 > Systems Technology Department of the New York City College
 > of Technology of the City University of New York where she
 > is coordinating and teaching advanced database courses. She
 > wrote a textbook "Physical Design and Implementation of
 > Relational Databases" and conducts a scientific colloquium
 > on newest data technologies.
