Premises and promises

Premises and Promises

  • Premises:

    • Audience experience and interests/needs and expectations;

    • Reasonable agreement about “The Problem”;

      • Situational Awareness of “Sea Change” in need to improve information/knowledge exchange and proper timely use;

      • A Window of Opportunity to make needed changes now exists;

      • Needs for conceptual clarity about existing domain complexity and evolving semantics ( Kinds of “hazards”; Categories of Preparation & Preparedness).

  • Promises:

    • Initial start at redefining Decision Support Systems as DSO;

    • Initial start at building a research funding knowledge base;

      • Reusable digital ERS_M components and registry/repository

  • Conclusions:

    • Found no clear Ontology Applications other than in Situational Awareness areas

    • High potential applications for migrating the 230+ specific Bioterrorism and Emergency Response applications from current point in Ontology Spectrum forward on the Spectrum

    • Primary stimulus for building prior Applications was legislated requirements


Danger zones

Danger Zones

  • Where you live and where you work and play (and your travels between them)

  • Largely unmarked and hidden to you, but digitized for various purposes by some “responsible Agent” (or Agency) within a legislated/document context at LEVEL

    • OMB GIS Initiatives and related SDO

    • Fed Agencies

    • State Agencies

    • Regional Agencies

    • Municipal Agencies

    • Private Agencies

  • See: Reference Tracking Unit at SUNY Buffalo (Werner Ceuster’s Real, Belief Network, Artifacts)

  • See: Barry Smith’s Document Ontology presentation


Decision supporting ontology dso

Decision Supporting Ontology (DSO)

  • Recent Forum use of “Clinical Vs Administrative”;

  • Balance Ontology Engineering with Ontology Management;

  • DSO More than “Decision Support Systems”;

  • Ontology Teams and their specialized Methods and Skill-sets with industrial applications in Emergency and Normal Conditions;

  • Team Roles: Onto Engineers; Onto Mgmt; Onto Liaison; Onto Programmers; Onto SOA Platform; XML Wizards: Re-defined DSS Position Functions

    • Project Planning and Business Process Management

      • Network Theory

      • Critical Path AnalysisTask Logic and Process/Knowledge Management

Our Approach to identifying Ontology Application Use and Potential Use in Emergency Response Systems

  • Weanalyzed existing document collections for purposes of categories and terms used to characterize Applications, Problems, and Funding ( Reserved policy gap analysis and process improvements for later:

    • Documents Collected from:

      • Ontolog Forum,

      • GAO, OMB, HHS, HLS,

      • UN, W3C, OASIS,

  • Key projects tools

    • Taxo-Thesaurus Project (Denise Bedford & Bob Smith, Co-Organizers):

    • Kayvium Architecture (www.kayvium.com) and SemTalk Process/Project tool suite (www.semtalk.com)

    • Process improvement using ontology-based (OWL-BPMN) simulation tools

  • Ontology Issues exposed by prior Ontolog Sessions, especially for from:

    • Alan Rector

    • Chris Chute

    • Barry Smith

    • York Sure

    • Leo Obrst

    • Peter Yim

    • Werner Ceusters

    • Duane Nickull and Kurt Conrad

    • Eliza Kendall

    • Many others
