Location:  EJ228 (SRI E building)  (Directions)

   Abstract

This talk presents an overview of ontology, including how formal ontology compares to less formal approaches and how the Suggested Upper Merged Ontology (SUMO) (www.ontologyportal.org) compares to other formal ontologies. Classes of ontology-based applications are introduced. Issues of the capabilities and tradeoffs in first order logic inference are explored.

The SUMO is also described in detail, along with its mappings to the WordNet lexicon.
