Towards a Unified Dispositional Framework for Realizable Entities [chapter]

Fumiaki Toyoshima, Adrien Barton, Ludger Jansen, Jean-François Ethier
2021 Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications  
In this paper we outline a unifying framework for realizable entities (including dispositions and roles) in the upper ontology Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) that is theoretically underpinned by J.  ...  In particular, we develop a formal ontological account of "extrinsic dispositions" and illustrate its potential applications with clarification of functions and roles in BFO.  ...  researched in formal ontology [48] and lies outside the scope of this paper (see Toyoshima's [20] discussion on deontic and normative aspects of social roles).  ...

Towards an Ontology of Document Acts: Introducing a Document Act Template for Healthcare [chapter]

Mauricio B. Almeida, Laura Slaughter, Mathias Brochhausen
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Objectives: This article summarizes first steps towards a sound ontological representation of documents in healthcare organizations by providing a template structure for documents acts.  ...  Regularly, documents are stored as mere files without analysis of their deontic powers.  ...  The OWL implementation of our document act ontology which is still under development follows the OBO Foundry criteria [7] 2 .The ontology is based on Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) [2] and re-uses existing  ...

Towards Better Semantics for Services in eHealth Standards: A Reference Ontology Approach

Zoran Milosevic, Joao Paulo A. Almeida, Julio C. Nardi

In this paper, we analyse the SOA Healthcare Ontology using a well-founded ontological approach referred to as UFO-S.  ...  UFO-S is a reference ontology that characterizes the notion of service by applying the concepts of commitments and claims and harmonizing several views of services from a broad perspective.  ...  could be in a knowledge base).  ...

A plea for complex categories in ontologies

Alexandra Arapinis, Laure Vieu
2015 Applied Ontology  
It is argued that the phenomenon of 'inherent polysemy' observed in lexical semantics for nouns such as book or country actually is a deeper phenomenon grounded on specific ontological relations involving  ...  This paper investigates an issue at the interface between language and ontology.  ...  In this paper we will show that logical polysemy not only has an ontological base, but most crucially invites us to extend the standard schema of ontological categorization.  ...

Policy-based Contracting in Semantic Web Service Markets

Prior (1914-69) in the course of the 1950s and 1960s founded a new and revolutionary paradigm in philosophy and logic.  ...  The book series, Logic and Philosophy of Time, is dedicated to a deep investigation and also the further development of Prior's paradigm.  ...  In Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) [4] , for example, the term "process" refers to a four-dimensional, spatio-temporally extended entity, after the fashion of perdurantism, something more like an event as  ...
