Historical ontology and infrastructure

David Ribes, Jessica Beth Polk
2012 Proceedings of the 2012 iConference on - iConference '12  
In applying the philosophical concept of historical ontology to cyberinfrastructure, we present the groundwork for a broader understanding of infrastructural sustainability within an environment inherently  ...  We explore the relationship between long-term scientific infrastructure and its changing objects of research.  ...  A common trope in explaining the success of long-term infrastructure is to claim that infrastructure must remain 'flexible.'  ...

A Foundry of Human Activities and Infrastructures [article]

Robert B. Allen, Eunsang Yang, Tatsawan Timakum
2017 arXiv   pre-print
Here we consider realist semantic modeling of everyday activities and infrastructures in such knowledgebases.  ...  Because we want to integrate a wide variety of topics, a collection of ontologies (a foundry) and a range of other knowledge resources are needed.  ...  Material Technologies and Infrastructure The contents of historical newspapers and other historical records for small towns often describe entities and activities which are routine, even mundane.  ...

The anthropology of infrastructure

Natalia Buier
2022 Focaal: Journal of Global and Historical Anthropology  
I pinpoint the limitations of these approaches and argue that their epistemological and theoretical assumptions blunt the critical potential of anthropological studies of infrastructure.  ...  In the first part of the article, I engage with the arguments in favor of infrastructure as an analytical lens by focusing on their treatment of relationality and materiality.  ...  In opposition to an ontologically infl icted anthropology of infrastructure, both the Marxist and the Foucaultian approach are grounded in the stress on the historicity of social formations.  ...

Mapping High-Level Application Requirements onto Low-Level Cloud Resources

Yih Leong Sun, Terence Harmer, Alan Stewart
2012 Journal of Software Engineering and Applications  
These are then translated into high-level infrastructure ontologies which then can be mapped onto low-level descriptions of cloud resources. Cost ontologies are proposed for cloud resources.  ...  Finding a suitable set of cloud products that meets an application's requirements and budget can be a challenging task. In this paper, an ontology-based resource mapping mechanism is proposed.  ...  onto infrastructure deployment ontologies.  ...

Towards Interoperable Network Ontologies for the Digital Humanities

Alison Langmead, Jessica M. Otis, Christopher N. Warren, Scott B. Weingart, Lisa D. Zilinksi
2016 International Journal of Humanities and Arts Computing: A Journal of Digital Humanities  
Here we examine the methodological considerations behind designing such interoperable ontologies, focusing primarily on the example of Early Modern historical networks.  ...  At the heart of these digital projects are 'network ontologies'functional data models for distilling the complicated, messy connections between historical people, objects, and places.  ...  work can easily be disregarded, digital humanists must create and manage network ontologies-formal naming structures of concepts, types, and relationships-that can serve as 'boundary objects', core infrastructural  ...

Spatial cyberinfrastructures, ontologies, and the humanities

Database, the authority for Chinese historical people, and (iii) the China Historical Geographical Information System, one of the first historical geographic information systems.  ...  Then we detail the system architecture, which includes a tier of ontologies and schema. We describe the user interface and applications that allow for cross-database queries.  ...  With historical spatial databases, and contrasting with most spatial ontologies, places depend highly on temporal properties.  ...

Toward a Multi-Dimensional Ontology Model for Urban Planning

Fatimazahra Barramou, Khalifa Mansouri, Malika Addou
2020 Journal of Geographic Information System  
The main goal is to provide semantic land use descriptions according to four dimensions: zoning, services, infrastructure and easement and to define all LUP concepts within the Moroccan urban law.  ...  Secondly, these ontologies are developed according to legislation and regulations of the zone studied so they can't be used by some urban territories that have specific urban law such as Moroccan country  ...  E-Heritage Refers to area reserved for the protection of historical and archaeological heritage around historical sites.  ...

We consider how the AAT and BFO2-based ontologies could be coordinated and integrated into a Human Activity and Infrastructure Foundry (HAIF).  ...  We compare a faceted thesaurus, the Art and Architecture Thesaurus (AAT), with ontologies derived from the Basic Formal Ontology (BFO2), which is an upper (or formal) ontology widely used to describe entities  ...  Here, we explore developing the Human Activity and Infrastructure Foundry (HAIF) [8] , which would be a collection of resources useful for describing common human activities and infrastructures such as  ...
