MariaPoveda: TD is developed by VINCINTY project because it was needed to sake of time
14:18:30 [DanhLePhuoc]
then it was adopted by the group
14:18:45 [DanhLePhuoc]
it's some how reduced to minimal form

14:26:14 [mlefranc]
MariaPoveda: I think the TD needs to be minimal, but we do not restrict alignments to other ontologies
14:26:28 [mlefranc]
... on the other hand the one to SSN should be standard,
14:26:44 [mlefranc]

topic: Some strategies for ontology reuse on alignment with TD (presented by María Poveda)
14:32:06 [mlefranc]
MariaPoveda: <starting her presentation>
14:32:29 [mlefranc]
... three types of reusing ontologies:
14:32:58 [mlefranc]
... 1. import ontology (owl:import), 2. declare submodel of the ontology, 3. reuse the URIs of the ontology
14:33:27 [mlefranc]
... owl:imports is strong ontological commitment, you import all the axioms of the imported document, and this is transitive
14:33:56 [mlefranc]
... if the ontology server of the imported ontology fails, then everything breaks
14:34:21 [mlefranc]
... you can't delete/override any of the axioms in the imported ontology
14:34:52 [mlefranc]
2. declare submodel is copying definitions and axioms of another ontology,
14:35:51 [mlefranc]
... a bit more difficult to implement, more robust to ontology server failures, less robust when changes in the imported ontology occur -> they are not propagated automatically
14:36:36 [mlefranc]
... for example in VICINITY our ontology copies the axioms and the definitions of the ssn-system module (see SOSA/SSN spec)
14:36:56 [mlefranc]
... 3. just reuse URIs of the reused ontology
14:37:48 [mlefranc]
... define your own concept, and link it to an external concept using axioms such as rdfs:subClassOf or owl:equivalentProperty, ...
14:38:16 [mlefranc]
... foe example, VICINITY extends the foaf:Person and defines: core:DigitalUser rdfs:subClassOf foaf:Person

DanhLePhuoc: would you make the TD ontology import any ontology at all ?
14:41:13 [mlefranc]
... ssn,, ...
14:41:38 [mlefranc]
MariaPoveda: maybe not directly in the TD ontology, maybe as mlefranc said: better in an external document
14:42:10 [mlefranc]
... I doubt that external ontologies (little or big) will be all implemented in TD implementations
14:43:08 [mlefranc]
DanhLePhuoc: I would suggest that we add example on how to use the TD ontology together with external ontologies
14:45:15 [mlefranc]
... we need some better synchronization between the WG and the IG
14:45:34 [mlefranc]
... with respect to TD ontology

TOPIC: Discuss on Ontology Alignment strategy for TD (focus on Linked Data perspective)
14:46:31 [mlefranc]
MichaelKoster: in we are pretty well aligned with TD,

14:46:51 [RRSAgent]
I have made the request to generate kaz
14:46:57 [mlefranc]
... in both cases we need at some point to use other ontologies to describe
14:47:10 [mlefranc]
... for example how a device acts on some feature of interest, etc.
14:47:43 [mlefranc]
... so let's keep new ontologies lightweight, and encourage the reuse of other existing formal ontologies
14:48:10 [mlefranc]
... maybe in a lightweight and reduced syntax such as JSON doc or so
14:48:35 [mlefranc]
... So: it's not so important to prevent terms conflicting in different namespaces
14:49:08 [mlefranc]
... the point is to see how these ontologies complement each other
14:49:45 [mlefranc]
DanhLePhuoc: is impressive in how it combines different vocabularies and try to harmonize a terminology
14:50:03 [mlefranc]
... for domain ontologies conflicting on some terms
14:51:13 [mlefranc]
... we can't prevent people from developing new ontologies, the key is to help developers navigate through all the formal models, and choose the right way to model things
14:51:43 [mlefranc]
... let's create a taskforce with people from semweb,, dev,
14:54:13 [mlefranc]
MariaPoveda: question is how to coordinate the addition of new semantics in the TD ontology
14:54:34 [mlefranc]
... what would be the freedom of this taskforce
14:55:11 [mlefranc]
DanhLePhuoc: maybe just propose new use cases and make them accepted first
14:58:14 [mlefranc]
kaz: basic mechanism of taskforces is that subgroup can make some decision in the taskforce call and bring it to the next call of the whole group
14:58:26 [mlefranc]
... for approval by the whole group
15:03:46 [mlefranc]
DanhLePhuoc: we haven't decided officially what we need to push to the main group, let's vote for the existence of the alignment and the fact it must be in an external document next week ?
