Comment on What is ontology? by Conceptual model of a workshop – Marshall X Ma's Blog

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 09:32:12 +0000

[…] In June 2014 I helped organize two workshops, the DCO Data Science Day 2014 and the GeoData 2014. The experience was unique and I thought it is necessary to write down some notes for future events. Hope it also be useful to other people who are planning to organize a workshop or small conference. The list of models below is following the idea of an ontology spectrum. […]

I do not think this is 100% positive on the NPG articles. ;-) Note my view on the socio-technical system of open science. That one is what I want to address.

Comment on Putting open Facebook data into Linked Data Cloud by Patrick West

First of all, there isn't always a 1-to-1 correlation between JSON and RDF. In other words, you can have a JSON object that isn't RDF but simply key/value pairs. JSON-LD would be a good place to start. If your json object is linked data then there are definitely converters from JSON-LD to RDF.

Hi Matthias thanks to point this out, i'll have a look at the configuration options. On my laptop everything works fine also off-line, i used IPython functionality to install mathjax and use it off-line. Maybe we need the same for reveal once the slide-mode will land in IPython Master. This was not the case for the AGU where the computer used for the presentation was a remote pc on which i had no direct access.

Note that when presenting with your computer (and without internet), you can configure IPython to use local resources (MathJax and/or reveal JS) if you have installed them locally. There should be utility function in IPython to help in installing.

The question of making the provenance of presentations, esp. "dynamic" presentations taking advantage of modern technologies shown "live," is interesting. Our semantic web toolkit gives us the capability of providing evidence to later "viewers" not only the version of the presentation that was shown and how it has been modified (and by whom) since the presentation date, but also a log of the presentation as given. Further, using online community ontologies such as sioc, one can easily imagine decorating the presentation log with live commentary, including comments from monitored TWitter hashtags. The point is that our modern web toolkit should not make the demonstration of provenance more difficult, but radically easier and much richer in content.

@Patrick West As i stated in the post, the assumption i made about a working internet connection was "a big mistake" ... About the 'provenance of presentations issue', both the old [1] and the new [2] link are working in the slideviewer. Note that [2] and [3] are the same file, with the main difference that [3] is a TWC resource document. This should address the "lack of provenance" highlighted in your reply. (Thanks for your comment) Also [1] is a version we made before the presentation day, not the final version, hence i had to update it. The final version presented at AGU and linked in the blog post is the HTML generated by " ipython nbconvert AGU-2013-H52E02-MDS.ipynb --to slides “ this command is mentioned in the slide itself, and not a link to the slide viewer + url.json because of the lack of internet. [1] [2] [3] Thanks.

On the one hand I can understand their requirements for having static presentations. There are a lot of sessions and a lot of presentations, all on a tight schedule. So making it so that all presentations are static and ready to go without having to worry about connectivity, having the right client software, etc... Is ideal. At the same time, in an interactive,real-time environment such as earth science informatics and geo sciences one would hope that we be able to be more open and flexible, utilizing open source solutions for presentations such as open office or neo office, online presentations based on standard web technologies (HTML5, JavaScript, style sheets), and the push to open data and transparency. Another interesting issue to consider is that of provenance of presentations. If I give you a URL for a presentation for a given event, how can I be sure that his is actually the presentation that you gave at the event without modification, etc... I've seen it where someone gives a presentation and then makes some pretty major modifications to it, adding additional slides, additional information, and covering additional topics. It's one thing to add a reference that you may have forgotten, or correcting an acknowledgement, fixing a link, those sorts of things. The original link on your presentation page referred to a particular version of an ipython notebook that includes an expressive representation of the notebook, including the date and time uploaded. So you could query our triple store for information on that manifestation of the document. Unfortunately, the slide view link no longer works, so you had to switch to a different manifestation of your presentation. Anyway, thanks for posting this blog about your AGU experience.
