   RE: [xml-dev] Beyond Ontologies

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Hi Len,

Practically, since we tried that in the past, asking to humans to resolve
issues is long and costly process. Moreover, I may have some difficulties to
ask the others to resolve all ontological conflicts I will encounter on the
web. However, I think, intuitively, you point to a good direction. More and
more I think that agents based modeling can help a lot for this type of
phenomenon hard to model the usual way.

For those of us who want to explore the agents based modeling here is a good
link. http://www.econ.iastate.edu/tesfatsi/ace.htm. It's about using agents
based modeling in the context of economics but it could be very well applied
on the topic of concept categorization or concept clustering. The site links
to a lot of articles with a pedagogical perspective. 

I think that agents based modeling can be tremendously useful for a
_pratical_ semantic web.
