OntologyDrivenApplications: Inventory of Existing and Potential Ontology-Driven Applications    (1542)

This list was produced to enable Ontolog members to identify the top 5 ontology driven applications to submit to Mills Davis, per his request. See: http://ontolog.cim3.net/forum/ontolog-forum/2006-09/msg00031.html    (1543)

Given the intent of this list of Top Five Ontology-Driven Applications, we are pleased to announce the results ranked from first to fifth place. The number in brackets is the grand score. You might find the actual patterns of interest in that the first place received attention from over half of the raters but was NOT their first choice. No application received more than 1 first choice vote. Thus, as you might well expect, there is not a lot of clear agreement about the future....but a concensus is observed about the importance of ontologies in standards development.    (1546)

Ref. the discussion at the Ontolog Community Planning conference call on Thu 2006.10.05, a project has been started to more comprehensively inventory existing and future ontology-driven applications, and possibly to assess, prioritize and/or rank them afterwards.
