Toronto, ON M3H 6A7The Open Ontology Repository
Currently the notion of the Semantic Web as distributed islands of semantics is not a sufficient de facto repository.
* If you put it out there, will they come?
* If you build it better and put it out there, will they prefer yours?
History does not show this laissez faire ?field of dreams? is good reality. While HTML was great for humans, machines are the primary consumers of the Semantic Web. Errors that a human may be able to diagnose and fix (such as a change in location of a document) are likely fatal for machine processing.
OOR has been developed to promote the global use and sharing of ontologies. The key goals of OOR are: to establish a hosted registry-repository; enable and facilitate open, federated, collaborative ontology repositories; and establish best practices for expressing interoperable ontology and taxonomy work in registry-repositories.Speaker: Bart Gajderowicz
