Roundtable: Resolving semantic differences #semantic

Jean Graef <jean.graef@...>

The Montague Institute will hold a teleconference roundtable discussion on November 28, 2007 from 11:00 am to 2:00 pm Eastern time.

David Huynh of MIT will demonstrate Potluck, an open source tool that has an innovative user interface for reconciling semantic differences. With Potluck, an end user can resolve differences between two datasets using the Firefox Web browser. Potluck is noteworthy as a learning tool to illustrate the practical issues in resolving data from multiple sources and as an example of an innovative user interface for resolving semantic differences.

After David's presentation and demo, Montague Institute founder Jean Graef will lead participants in a discussion of the use of Potluck and similar tools in large organizations.

A basic primer, "Ontologies and the Semantic Web," is also being offered November 6. See
