Don’t miss the “Ontology Design by Enriching Taxonomies” working session on Wednesday, February 3, 2021, 2:15 – 3:45 pm EST; 12:15 – 1:45 pm MST (virtual/online) with two of our top knowledge engineers: Heather Hedden and Alexis Dimitriades.
Session Description: Data and the subsequent knowledge derived from information are valuable assets of an organization. What makes it especially valuable is if the data can be classified and linked in a knowledge graph to achieve better decisions, customer satisfaction, and knowledge discovery, by solving such problems as localized meaning, data silos, heterogeneous data sources, and divergent kinds of structured and unstructured data. Ontologies model and semantically link different kinds of data forming the basic structure of a knowledge graph.
There are different approaches to designing and creating ontologies, however, and the choice of which may depend on what taxonomies and other knowledge organization systems already exist in an organization, whether the focus is on only data or also other content, and what tools are available. This workshop addresses the approach of building an ontology as a semantic layer on top of existing taxonomies or other controlled vocabularies, thus semantically enriching and linking them, and then the ontology itself does not need to be large and complex. Practical issues or decision points in creating ontologies will also be covered, and there will be some participatory activities.
