4. Regular Order of Business for SICoP
  • Call for Papers
  • Purpose The new Semantic Interoperability
    Community of Practice (SICoP) was recently
    chartered under the Federal CIO Councils Best
    Practices Committee - Knowledge Management
    Working Group for the purpose of achieving
    "semantic interoperability" and "semantic data
    integration" focused on the government sector.
    The SICoP is working on a White Paper with three
    modules (see next slide) that form the basis for
    workshops and conferences for broader education
    and participation. Since the SICoP is an
    outgrowth of the First Semantic Technologies for
    eGov Conference at the White House Conference
    Center last September 8, 2003, it is hosting the
    Second Conference Semantic Technologies for eGov
    on September 8-9, 2004, at MITRE in McLean,
    Virginia.

  • Papers need to be limited to 10 pages in Word
    format, but PowerPower presentations may be up to

5. Collaborating on Semantic Harmonization Brief
History
  • The AIC chartered three Working Groups
    (Collaboration Expedition Workshops, XML, and XML
    Web Services) which were and still are very
    successful.
  • The AIC, which started as one integrated
    activity, reorganized into three Subcommittees
    and put the three WGs into the Emerging
    Technology Subcommittee.
  • The AIC decided it no longer wanted WGs, but by
    then the WGs had become CoPs and sources of best
    practices so they continued to support the AIC as
    well as broader needs.
  • For example the XML Web Services WG CoP morphed
    into Semantic Interoperability CoP!
  • The AIC decided it then wanted to become an
    integrated activity again like a CoP and formed
    the CAF CoP and wants to do a joint meeting with
    the Best Practices Committee in July!
  • The CIOs have realized that they cant do
    Enterprise Architecture alone, but need the
    expertise, participation, and resources of a
    network of CoPs!

23
5. Collaborating on Semantic Harmonization
  • Fourth Quarterly Emerging Technology Components
    Conference An Emerging Public-Private
    Partnership at MITRE, June 3, 2004
  • Some recommendations on Strategic Directions
  • Involve taxonomy (ontology) expertise in
    improving the FEA classification scheme
    (taxonomy) and its extension into the agencies.
    (This should also help the Line of Business Task
    Forces work.)
  • Involve knowledge management expertise in
    building a comprehensive knowledge-base
    (repository) of enterprise architecture (OMB
    budget, solutions like Service-Oriented, Web
    Services, etc.)

See GCN, May 20, 2004, Forman calls for new
approach to the Federal Enterprise Architecture.

5. Collaborating on Semantic Harmonization
  • David Webber, July 5th, CIO Councils XML WG
    ListServ (excerpts)
  • ..assuming XSD worked flawlessly today - then
    there is still a huge gap in its performance
    capabilities - when it comes to agile
    interoperable information exchanges.
  • If the government actually takes a moment and
    starts to look at what it really takes to make
    information exchanges of this nature - and I gave
    a short list of the top half-dozen features I see
    - then looks at XSD - remarkably XSD supports
    none of them!
  • That is why I am arguing the need to augment XSD,
    not just with CAM, but with registries containing
    vocabularies and standard components, semantic
    tools - like OWL, and build an infrastructure for
    attaining interoperable systems.

25
5. Collaborating on Semantic Harmonization
  • David Webber, July 5th, CIO Councils XML WG
    ListServ (excerpts continued)
  • Some things that I see high on my checklist to
    deliver strong interoperability
  • 1) Versioning to element and attribute level.
  • 2) Context driven assembly of structure
    permutations.
  • 3) Support for semantic dictionary referencing to
    standard noun (element/attribute) definitions.
  • 4) Support for validation expressions (e.g. date
    today).
  • 5) Strong codelist support - including
    versioning.
  • 6) Call-out support to validation web services
    (e.g. partNo valid?).

26
5. Collaborating on Semantic Harmonization
  • KM.Gov Discussion of Business Function Models
    (Denise Bedford, May 26, 2004)
  • The World Banks is a narrow and deep hierarchy
  • Level 1 General Business Area
  • Level 2 Business Activity
  • Level 3 Business Process
  • Level 4 Task
  • Note A service taxonomy is an inherent part of
    a business taxonomy and emerges at Level 3 and
    below. If you can keep business function and
    organizational unit as separate attributes, you
    can then see which organizational units may be
    offering the same kinds of services and this
    might help to form communities of practice across
    organizational units!

5. Collaborating on Semantic Harmonization
Content gives us the semantics
(taxonomy/ontology) the interoperability, Adam

5. Collaborating on Semantic Harmonization
  • Some important features of the mapping matrices
    (slides 27-29)
  • The Conceptual Areas (Nodes)/ Knowledge Objects
    (Services) consist of XML information objects
    which can be reused in different contexts,
    applications, Communities of Practice, etc.
  • The reuse is accomplished through
  • Metadata
  • Taxonomies (even Ontologies) and
  • Standardization/Harmonization (mappings between
    and across) Across Multiple Taxonomies (even
    Ontologies).
