|IServe||" iServe is what we refer to as service warehouse which unifies service publication, analysis, and discovery through the use of lightweight semantics as well as advanced discovery and analytic capabilities. iServe provides the typical features of service registries and additional functionality that exploits service descriptions, service annotations and further data gathered and derived from the analysis of these descriptions, data crawled from the Web, periodic monitoring and user activities. iServe builds upon lessons learnt from research and development on the Web and on service discovery algorithms to provide a generic semantic service registry able to support advanced discovery over both Web APIs and WSDL services described using heterogeneous formalisms."||Knowledge Media Institute at Open University|

ONTOLOG (a.k.a. “Ontolog Forum”) is an open, international, virtual community of practice devoted to advancing the field of ontology, ontological engineering and semantic technology, and advocating their adoption into mainstream applications and international standards.
“… a secret and ardent stirring within the frozen chastity of the universal.”
― Thomas Mann.
In computer science and information science, an ontology is a formal naming and definition of the types, properties, and interrelationships of the entities that really or fundamentally exist for a particular domain of discourse. It is thus a practical application of philosophical ontology, with a taxonomy. An ontology compartmentalizes the variables needed for some set of computations and establishes the relationships between them. The fields of artificial intelligence, the Semantic Web, systems engineering, software engineering, biomedical informatics, library science, enterprise bookmarking, andinformation architecture all create ontologies to limit complexity and to organize information. The ontology can then be applied to problem solving.
What We do
Members of this community participate in these activities:
- Discuss practical issues and strategies associated with the development and application of both formal and informal ontologies..
- Identify ontological engineering approaches that might be applied to the UBL effort, as well as to the broader domain of eBusiness standardization efforts.
- Strive to advance the field of ontological engineering and semantic technologies, and to help move them into main stream applications.
