Séminaire RCLN (Aldo Gangemi)
Monday 30 May 2011 at 02.00 PM
Location: amphithéâtre Darwin, Institut Galilée, Université Paris Nord — Duration: one hour
Aldo Gangemi (http://www.istc.cnr.it/createhtml.php?nbr=71), chercheur invité de l’équipe et directeur du STLab (Semantic Technology Laboratory) du CNR (Italian National Research Council )
Ontologies as used in conceptual modelling and the semantic web are
designed based on different, sometimes mutually incompatible, practices:
as top-down theories, as emerging from linguistic evidence, as motivated
by a set of tasks, as a result of an evolutionary social process, etc.
I will make an assessment of the dimensions that can be used to analyze/evaluate an ontology, and will present a set of pattern-based methods for ontology design, a typology of patterns, some examples, and a summary (time-permitting) of the eXtreme Design approach.
A separate hands-on session using eXtreme Design with the NeOn Toolkit will be held on a next date.
