I think my ideas are basically those being carried out by the NeOn (Networked Ontology) approach that I have just located this morning. Here an excellent description of their approach:
Ed, some comments on your thoughts:
I think this is an interesting "engineering experiment", as long as it
I agree there must be an objective criterion on which to determine if the benefit was achieved. As you also stated later, the original question in the thread :
What should be the relationship between ontologies and the many existing and emerging standard information models and dictionaries that support standards of practice?
Therefore, this criterion would determine how strong or weak a relationship is. That is the reason for:
I have limited understanding with some of your concepts, so my terminology may fail in adequately expressing the idea. I believe there are several different ways to construct an ontology based on the purpose one wishes to derive from it. I believe these are called Ontology Design Patterns.
I was not aware of this project prior to looking for some references for ODPs this morning. It appears to me their approach will (or does already) provide the "ontology types based on purpose" to which I was referring.
In addition, I was not saying that the relationships between the ontologies and the standards should be just like the relationships between tables in a database (or the columns and tuples they contain), I was saying that when developing ontology node relationships should become this simple, then I believe the utility of ontology providing benefits to semantic applications will take off.
