Proposed framework for Track 3 Challenge - Ontology and Big Data


People in the domains of science, software engineering, computer science, etc. can benefit from a combined knowledge of their domain and application of ontology-based technologies. A combined understanding of these domains and ontology-based technologies may encourage the growth of technology.



·         Programmers are not able to optimize the use of unstructured data for scientist and engineers

·         Scientist without ontology training use brute force programming – can be inefficient and scientist and engineers are not aware of options and capabilities using ontology-based technologies

·         Science and ontology-based technology evolution is slow or non-existent

·         Is technological growth constrained by the shortage of qualified ontologists?



  • Enable scientist to make maximum use of big data
  • Enable scientist to understand the potential of ontology-based systems integration
  • Enable ontologists to understand scientist needs



  • The skills most needed today include a combined understanding of a scientific or engineering discipline and knowledge of ontology-based technologies.
