Currently, there is no agreed on methodology for development of ontologies, and there is no consensus on how ontologies should be evaluated. Consequently, evaluation techniques and tools are not widely utilized in the development of ontologies. This can lead to ontologies of poor quality and is an obstacle to the successful deployment of ontologies...

This report addresses: (a) Description of the Cyc Battle Monitor prototype and (b) Development of the Cyc Battle Monitor concept. The development represented by the completed Cyc Battle Monitor prototype, goes beyond recognition of surface data patterns because both the richness of the Cyc ontology and its reasoning capabilities are being utilized...

The subject of this paper is the problem of information fusion, and the potential of knowledge base technology to play a role in solving it. To explain and illustrate this potential, the paper offers a basic explanation of a particular knowledge base technology (Cyc), and describes a particular project (CPOF), and the work done for it, in which tha...

Article
The Ontology Summit 2012 explored the current and potential uses of ontology, its methods and paradigms, in big systems and big data: How ontology can be used to design, develop, and operate such systems. The systems addressed were not just software systems, although software systems are typically core and necessary components, but more complex sys...
