Minutes of Previous Meetings
No additional corrections were received for the minutes
from the 28 November,
Ian's work is coming together. Mike, Dan Connolly, et al still need to
agree on the URI.
We're still planning for a release in December, probably
late next week (e.g. December 28).
Mike Dean presented his
Dan Connolly and Peter/Ian have made progress but are still finalizing their proposals.
Mike brought up the issue of associating units of measure with
numeric quantities (as an additional facet),
which might be very meaningful to reason over.
Jerry Hobbs' work on scales might be relevant here.
We'll plan to revisit this topic, with hopes for final resolution,
on January 2 or 9.
Pat Hayes reported on the KIF standards meeting he attended in Austin.
Pat will let us know the URI once the meeting summary has been published
on the web.
Relationship with FIPA
Dieter had initiated some discussion with the
Federation for Intelligent Physical Agents (FIPA) Ontology Committee, about proposing OIL as a standard.
He wondered whether he should propose the use of DAML+OIL instead of OIL.
There was consensus among the participants that this would be a good thing.
Dieter is willing to take the lead and have someone in his
lab participate in the FIPA committee.
Once DAML+OIL is published, Dieter will forward the announcement
and additional info to email@example.com.
We'll also check with Jim Hendler and Tim Berners-Lee in the meantime.
