Practice-Based Ontologies: A New Approach to Address the Challenges of Ontology and Knowledge Representation in History and Archaeology [chapter]

Emad Khazraee, Michael Khoo
2011 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
This study therefore proposes a phenomenological approach to requirements gathering for knowledge representation and ontology systems for historians and archaeologists.  ...  The design requirements for ontology design can be extracted from the 'thick description' produced by this process, and used to build 'practice-based ontologies.'  ...  We are grateful to Professor Holly Pittman at the University of Pennsylvania who kindly provided access to the research site to the authors; and to the anonymous reviewers' insightful comments, which greatly  ...

Towards an Ontology-Driven Information System for Archaeological Pottery Studies: The Greyware Experience

Esther Travé Allepuz, Sonia Medina Gordo, Pablo del Fresno Bernal, Joan Vicens Tarré, Alfred Mauri Martí
2021 Applied Sciences  
The archaeological analysis of medieval and modern pottery has benefited from the consolidation of archaeometry in the domain of Medieval Archaeology in the past few decades.  ...  Its development and application prove that a little semantics goes a long way and that the creation of domain ontologies for archaeological research is an iterative process under development, as long as  ...  The funders had no role in the design of the study; in the collection, analyses or interpretation of data; in the writing of the manuscript; or in the decision to publish the results.  ...

Going Deeper or Flatter: Connecting Deep Mapping, Flat Ontologies and the Democratizing of Knowledge

Selina Springett
2015 Humanities  
It explores how deep mapping is a reflection of epistemological trends in ontological practices of connectivity and the "flattening" of knowledge systems.  ...  The concept of "deep mapping", as an approach to place, has been deployed as both a descriptor of a specific suite of creative works and as a set of aesthetic practices.  ...  Acknowledgments I am indebted to Rebecca Swain for initially introducing me to the practice of deep mapping and for Virginia Madsen for her advice.  ...

Ontologies as Knowledge Organization Systems

Maria Teresa Biagetti
2021 Knowledge organization  
This contribution presents the principal features of ontologies, drawing special attention to the comparison between ontologies and the different kinds of know­ledge organization systems (KOS).  ...  The use of ontologies in the digital libraries environment, where they have replaced thesauri for query expansion in searching, and the role they are playing in the Semantic Web, especially for semantic  ...  The systems based on description logics allow human and automatic agents to realize inferences, that is, to infer new knowledge from a knowledge base.  ...
