Background: OMB Ontology and Ontologizing

Memo (http://semanticommunity.info/Data_Science/NSF_Strategic_Plan#Ontology_and_Ontologizing) - In Summary:

An Ontology:

• is a formal representation of meaning in an information system;

• creates the bridge between the internal world of the computer and the external world of people’s understanding;

• provides an inter lingua between disparate data sources and knowledge bases;

• allows us to build useful and usable systems for complex tasks in health care.

Remember:

• don’t try to divorce the Ontology from its application (the ‘universal ontology’)

• building and embedding an Ontology in a useful application has pitfalls that require judgment, experience, clarity of purpose, and resources.
