"What is an Open Ontology?"{nid SUS} (This page is opened    (T0U)

With the term 'open ontology' we refer to a given set of agreed terms, both in terms of conceptualization and semantic formalization, that has been developed based on public consultation, that embodies and represents and synthesizes all available, valid knowledge that is deemed to pertain to a given domain, and is necessary to fulfill a given functional requirement. An Oont must be publicly documented, and accessible and with minimal barriers to adoption. Among the barrier to adoption for Ontology, current research identifies not only different linguistic, conceptual and cultural differences, but also knowledge and point of view differences that set apart academics – who generally develop ontologies and related tools and methodologies – from experts – who understand lingo and the dynamics - system developers – programmers, systems designers and end users at large. By 'open' we indicate 'perfectly flexible', extensible, and with adaptive boundaries that dynamically adjust to constantly changing parameters and also 'open as opposed to 'closed', whereby an ontology is developed internally by an organization or consortium, with the purpose of imposing a single view of the world, without a public consultation process and no public deliverable is available that can be used and referenced as guidelines by system developers for the purpose of third party integration    (T0V)
