This article deals with advanced topics of ontological engineering to convince readers ontology is more than a rule base of terminological problems and is worth to consider a promising methodology in the next generation knowledge processing research. Needless to say, ontology in AI is tightly connected to ontology in philosophy. The first topic here is on philosophical issues which are very important to properly understand what an ontology is. After defining class, instance andis-a relation, we… Expand

Towards an ontology modeling tool. A validation in software engineering scenarios
The comparison shows that both tools have similar acceptation scores, but OWL-VisMod presents better feelings regarding user's perception tasks due to the visual analytics influence. Expand

This article presents an ontology called Ontology of Computational Object Knowledge Base (COKB), a model for representing problems together reasoning algorithms for solving them, and design methods to construct applications. Expand
YAMATO: Yet Another More Advanced Top-Level Ontology with Analysis of Five Examples of Change
Taking into account the modern society in which a flood of information occurs, yamato has a sophisticated theory of informational objects (representations) and quality and quantity are carefully organized for the sake of greater interoperability of real-world data. Expand
The authors proposed Sup_Ont, a fundamental upper ontology that shows the structure of the universe shows the concept of reality that is defined to have an existence which is known as truth. Expand
Ontology Engineering for Biological Applications
Ontology engineering is one of the basic components of Semantic Web technology, Ontology engineering provides semantic clarity, explicitness, and facilitates the reusability of representedExpand
A Formal Approach to Evaluating Medical Ontology Systems using Naturalness
The notion of naturalness as a component of QoO is formalized and quantitatively measures naturalness for well-known ontologies (UMLS, WordNet, OpenCyc) based on their concepts, IS-A relationships and semantic relationships. Expand
A Generic Implementation Framework for Measuring Ontology-Based Information
A generic implementation framework for stable semantic ontology measurement is proposed and related experiments are made to show that the framework can effectively measure the semantics of ontologies. Expand
A Framework to Normalize Ontology Representation for Stable Measurement
A framework to normalize representation of ontologies for their stable measurement is proposed, where the semantic enriched representation model (SERM) is proposed as the unique representation for ontologies. Expand
A framework for analyzing changes in health care lexicons and nomenclatures
A novel agent-based framework, RLR (Represent, Legitimate, and Reproduce), to semi-automatically manage the evolution of bio-ontologies, with emphasis on the FungalWeb Ontology, with minimal human intervention. Expand
Toward knowledge structuring of sustainability science based on ontology engineering
The mapping tool can support thinking about SS from the viewpoint of finding new potentials and risks of technological countermeasures studied in SS; helping users to get a more comprehensive picture of problems and their potential solutions; and providing an effective opportunity to come up with new ideas that might not be thought of without such a tool.

Foundation of Knowledge Systematization: Role of Ontoiogical Engineering
The objective of the research described in this article is to give a firm foundation for knowledge systematization from AI point of view. Our knowledge systematization is based on ontoiogicalExpand
Ontology-based description of functional design knowledge and its use in a functional way server
A new concept named “way of achievement” is proposed as a key concept for capturing functional knowledge representing achievement relations among functions and development of a design supporting system using the systematized knowledge, called a functional way server. Expand
Some Ontological Principles for Designing Upper Level Lexical Resources
The ontological nature of the categories used in current upper-level structures is analyzed, considering the necessity of splitting them according to more subtle distinctions or the opportunity of excluding them because of their limited organizational role. Expand
A functional concept ontology and its application to automatic identification of functional structures
A functional concept ontology is proposed which provides a rich vocabulary representing functions together with clear definitions grounded on behavior that enables the automatic identification system to make the search in the functional space tractable and to screen out meaningless interpretations. Expand
Function in Device Representation
This work distinguishes between function as effect on the environment, and a device-centred view of device function, and identifies an important concept called mode of deployment that is often left implicit, but whose explicit representation is necessary for correct and complete reasoning. Expand
A Taxonomy of Part-Whole Relations
A taxonomy of part-whole or meronymic relations is developed to explain the ordinary English-speaker's use of the term “part of” and its cognates, and the data suggest that intransitivities arise due to equivocations between different types of semantic relations. Expand
