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… 

Sup_Ont: An Upper Ontology

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.

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.

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.

Ontology Engineering for Biological Applications

This work analyzes the MGED (Microarray Gene Expression Data) ontology for describing microarray experiments and reveals design problems that are common for other ontologies in biology.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Ontologies for information entities: State of the art and open challenges

Comparisons of existing ontologies with both each other and theories proposed in philosophy, semiotics, librarianship, and literary studies are compared in order to understand how the ontologies conceive and model information entities.



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 and includes device ontology and functional ontology both of which play fundamental roles in understanding artifacts by a computer.

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.

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.

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.

Evaluating ontological decisions with OntoClean

Explosing common misuses of the subsumption relationship and the formal basis for why they are wrong.
