You are right, Amanda, I was using "computer science" incorrectly. I meant "software design practice". |
But , yes, as you say, the training materials for OWL seem to be done by people with little knowledge or experience. To me, more egregious than noun-centricity is that they also seem seem to suggest that the most important, indeed almost only, relationship between the thingies represented in the ontology is type-subtype, when multiple classifier entities that apply to the thingies, depending on attribute values and even associations with other things, and part-whole are usually more useful once the depth of typehood goes much beyond three. (For example, they have the types of the grapes in the wine as the types of wine, instead of as a classification scheme for wines based on grapes used, and colors of the wine made as types of wine, instead of this being a different classification scheme, locations of the terroir as types of wine, so that French Wine is a type, and Burgundy a sub-type, when quite apparently, one would think, the matter is really that Burgundy is a part of France.
