Hi Paola -

RE: Suppose you want to create an ontology of, say, vegetables. And you place your electrode in the brains of vegetable specialists and successfully infer an ontology of vegetables from the signals in  their brains. Would the result be an ontology of vegetables or an ontology of brain signals?

PDM>I think I have the answer now. From an experiment as above, I would  derive two ontologies, one for the brainwaves (an ontology for the observation mechanism) and  one for the vegetables (the object observed). I would then compare the two with ontologies derived using different methods to compare them.

....what if you used the same method to compare them?

I would probably also throw in another test: matching the two ontologies (brainwaves and vegetables) looking for patterns of similarity.

...what if you also looked for opposition and contrast?
