Minutes (just brief bullets not full transcript ) Agenda :

Discuss significance of Ontological Reasoning  for Semantic Content Management


Goal : -Understand significance of Ontological Reasoning

  •  Jeff Pollock lead discussion around use of Ontologies for possible Semantic Web scenarios such as Dynamic Discovery of Registered 'knowledge'.
  • It was posited that 'Owl Ontologies' could be considered registry objects that would be available to clients that perform 'reasoning' tasks.
  • Members agreed that if 'RIM' could be presented as an 'OWL Model' it should be possible to use it for navigation across all the underlying object associations via a loose coupling. 
  • It was agreed that it would be good to know what kind of content is stored in ebXMLRegistry today. Carl noted that the survey that he planned to give members of the FreebxmlRegistry community could gather that type of information.
