Toward a Formal Common Information Model Ontology [chapter]

Stephen Quirolgico, Pedro Assis, Andrea Westerinen, Michael Baskey, Ellen Stokes
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
One standard that provides a common model for describing disparate computer and network information is the Common Information Model (CIM).  ...  To be effectively managed, such information will need to conform to a common model.  ...  One standard that is expected to provide such a model is the Common Information Model (CIM) [3] .  ...

Since ontologies have been used to express formally a shared understanding of information, we argue that they are a way towards Semantic SEEs.  ...  Software tools processing partially common set of data should share an understanding of what these data mean.  ...  Since ontologies is used to express formally a shared understanding of information, we advocate their use to go ahead Semantic SEEs.  ...

Towards an Ontology-Driven Blockchain Design for Supply Chain Provenance [article]

Henry M. Kim, Marek Laskowski
2016 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we make a case for why ontologies can contribute to blockchain design.  ...  To support this case, we analyze a traceability ontology and translate some of its representations to smart contracts that execute a provenance trace and enforce traceability constraints on the Ethereum  ...  That is:  A modeling approach based on informal or semi-formal ontologies can lead to better data standards, and business practices and processes for developing and operating a blockchain.  A modeling  ...

On cooperatively creating dynamic ontologies

Eva Gahleitner, Wernher Behrendt, Jürgen Palkoska, Edgar Weippl
2005 Proceedings of the sixteenth ACM conference on Hypertext and hypermedia - HYPERTEXT '05  
We also investigate the relationship between terminology and ontology, which we view as a bridge between linguistically motivated and IT motivated standardisation of conceptual models.  ...  Major issues are the guidance of knowledge workers towards soundly constructed ontologies with the help of upper level ontologies and an exploration into language issues -in our case the scenario for constructing  ...  A systematic approach to gain this common understanding is the dynamic creation of ontologies, leading to a more efficient use of shared information resources.  ...

Towards a Course of Action Probability Ontology for Logistic Supply Destruction Operation [chapter]

Xinye Zhao, Zhongchen Fan, Shanliang Yang, Kedi Huang
2012 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
While the userdefined domain-specific classes that convey the equivalent of what a standard ontology is constructed beyond the COA ontology.  ...  To address this issue, our work relies on probabilistic ontology which extends ontology to capture uncertainty in a principled and standardized way.  ...  Providing commanders with advanced decision aids requires a good understanding of the processes involved, their information requirements, and the development of formal domain models upon which reasoning  ...

Ontological Foundations for Geographic Information Science [chapter]

David M. Mark, Barry Smith, Max J. Egenhofer, Stephen C. Hirtle
2004 A Research Agenda for Geographic Information Science  
Serious research on ontology of geographic phenomena has begun only recently, and thus far the work has been directed primarily toward the formal modeling of the geospatial world as this is experienced  ...  Note that in the first, philosophical sense, Ontology is a mass noun that cannot be pluralized, whereas in the second sense-more common in information science-one can speak of "several ontologies."  ...

Toward the Use of Upper-Level Ontologies for Semantically Interoperable Systems: An Emergency Management Use Case [chapter]

Linda Elmhadhbi, Mohamed-Hedi Karray, Bernard Archimède
2019 Proceedings of the I-ESA Conferences  
On the other hand, we present several upper level ontologies and how we chose and then used Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) as an upper level ontology and Common Core Ontology (CCO) as a mid-level ontology  ...  In this paper, we aim in one hand to investigate the role of upper level ontologies as a mean for enabling the formalization and integration of heterogeneous sources of information and how it may support  ...  (SUMO), Common Semantic Model (COSMO), Cyc project and so on.  ...

Aurona Gerber, Marthinus C. Gerber, Alta van der Merwe
2015 Americas Conference on Information Systems  
This paper therefore describes three contributions towards the CFfFR namely: 1) an hierarchical model depicting the positioning of the CFfFR as a domain ontology determining the role, purpose, usage and  ...  Following the Ontology Life Cycle Model we determined and represented key concepts for the CFfFR ontology as part of this work we developed a model to depict the decision process to report decision-useful  ...  With regards to accounting information systems, a formalized ontology is a computerized model that could be integrated into accounting information systems.  ...

2011 Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies  
We will discuss a number of approaches towards data integration. Two main technologies are considered, namely UML (Unified Modelling Language) and ontologies.  ...  is to serve as a domain model instead of as a data model for a specific application.  ...  This technology allows for a common, formally defined and description logics supported data-format to be specified. Effectively, it models the world around the systems in a graph model.  ...

Bridging Ontology Evolution and Belief Change [chapter]

Giorgos Flouris, Dimitris Plexousakis
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we uncover a certain gap in current ontology evolution approaches and propose a novel research path based on belief change.  ...  One of the crucial tasks towards the realization of the Semantic Web vision is the efficient encoding of human knowledge in ontologies.  ...  We argued that this approach will lead to several formal results related to ontology evolution and resolve several weaknesses of the currently used model.  ...

Applying Ontologies and Agent Technologies to Generate Ambient Intelligence Applications [chapter]

Artur Freitas, Daniela Schmidt, Alison Panisson, Rafael H. Bordini, Felipe Meneguzzi, Renata Vieira
2015 Communications in Computer and Information Science  
Since this lack of a uniform representation makes harder to express how each level affects the others, we propose an ontology to integrate the formalisms that originally cover a single multi-agent system  ...  In our approach, we represent the abstractions typical of each multi-agent system dimension as an ontology, and we exemplify both the use of such ontologies to model an eldercare application in the context  ...  An integrated ontology model to represent these MAS dimensions enables semantic reasoning and can be used as a common vocabulary in agent-oriented programming.  ...
