 Murray Altheim
Informal ontologies in the organization of research materials and authoring
This event took place on Monday 17 November 2003 at 12:30

Much of the history of Knowledge Representation and Ontological Engineering has been based on a premise of formalized ontologies, designed by (and often only used by) trained experts. Seldom have non-experts been granted entry.

My Ph.D. is based on a different premise: that informal ontologies developed by non-experts may still provide significant gains over more traditional organizational approaches.

This talk presents an ontology-based authoring environment intended to assist writers in organizing their research materials, and further, in visualizing and developing narratives based upon those materials.

The authoring software is called "Ceryle", a Java-based framework that includes a text editor, an internal database for storing notes and other content, an ontology visualizer and editor, as well as plans for various auto-generation of composited documents. Anything that can be referred to via URI can be organized using Ceryle.

A brief demo of Ceryle will be included.
