Introduction & Discussion of W3C RDF as ITS subgroup
DB presented slide show
- Semantic Interoperability
- Islands between existing and future standards
- RDF & OWL W3C are standards for capturing semantic and info structure
OWL build on top of RDF allowing building of ontolofies
Goal 1:Create RDF & OWL definitions of standards to interconnect and relate to each other Semantically cohesive mesh of standards
Goal 2: Act as knowledge resource for other work groups
Part of Yosemite project ??? YosemiteProject.org
Not another domain model. This group should be neutral toward domain models and vocabularies
PK: Opening remarks ITS Scope: things that travel on the wire: datatype, transposrts, implementation of abstract knowledge (no clinical domain such as BP, etc). We create specs used by other committees. We feel it falls within the domain. Used to be XML SIG (wuth narrow scope), which grew to WG. We are happy to sponser this same activity, intent and work of RDF seems to fit within framework.
CL: This work will probably eventually span WGs: DSS, ITS, AID, and thus deserve its own WG. Group led by Phillips in 2003-2004 was investigated.
JC: What would it mean for company to participate? Pay money? Work expectations? PK: No membership reqd to participate in calls, or attend WG meetings, simply some rate reductions. When showing up, have same voting, etc. Non-members can pay to participate in ballots, get access to standards 90 days early. Also need to be a member to be co-chair.
DB: weekly teleconference.
PK: Anyone outside of North America Charlie in Paris, Mehmet in Turkey DB: deal with time zone issues separately
