*Interaction of Ontology and Database in the Information System*    (010)

*Abstract*: (by Tatiana Malyuta)    (011)

The presentation discusses some issues on the interaction of 
Ontology and Database in Information Systems (IS):    (012)

  * Distribution of "responsibilities" between Ontology and 
Database:    (013)

    o what are the role and place of Ontology in IS,    (014)

    o how much semantics to leave within the database, and    (015)

    o how to integrate the Database semantics with Ontology.    (016)

  * Symbiosis of Ontology and Database:    (017)

    o during the IS life-cycle,    (018)

    o how changes and growth of Database will affect Ontology,    (019)

    o how evolution of Ontology will be reflected in Database,    (020)

    o and how to support this relationship and benefit from it.    (021)

  * Using Ontology for efficient data utilization in general and 
data integration in particular.    (022)

  * Using Ontology for support of Human-Computer Interfaces.    (023)

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.    (024)

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:    (026)

interactive navigation system in a media-rich document 
environment at New York City College of Technology.    (027)

    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.    (028)

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.    (029)
