What is Ontology?

Ontology is, in simplest form, the science of representing knowledge.

Many years ago, when computer is gaining broader use, Ontology was discussed in terms of Knowledge Representation. That is how knowledge is stored in machines (i.e. computers).

I am googling by entering "ontology" as keywords, and from what Google gave, I picked at least three results I planned to explore further.

  1. OWL Web Ontology Language Overview

  2. Ontology. Based on well-known John F. Sowa's book.

  3. Ontology (computer science) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

  4. What is an Ontology? by Tom Gruber of Stanford University's Knowledge Systems Lab.

  5. Ontology. A resource guide for philosophers

In recent years, where XML is gathering more attention, Ontology and Semantic Web is chained together. My research interest is in some sense related to Semantic Web research.

ReactOS

ReactOS Project

New to ReactOS?

React Operating System

ReactOS® is an advanced free open source operating system providing a ground-up implementation of a Microsoft Windows® XP compatible operating system. ReactOS aims to achieve complete binary compatibility with both applications and device drivers meant for NT and XP operating systems, by using a similar architecture and providing a complete and equivalent public interface.

ReactOS is the most complete working model of a Windows® like operating system available. Consequently, working programmers will learn a great deal by studying ReactOS source code and even participating in ReactOS development.

ReactOS has and will continue to incorporating features from newer versions and sometimes even define the state of the art in operating system technology.

In short, ReactOS is aiming to run your applications and use your hardware, a free operating system for everyone!

Please bear in mind that ReactOS 0.3.1 is still in alpha stage, meaning it is not feature complete and is not recommended for everyday use.

Prolog Resources

A boy, a blog, and stuff: Apparently there are some websites on Prolog

When browsing through Artificial Intelligence, I found this blog entry enumerating some bunch of Prolog Programming Resources.

Ubuntu Muslim Edition - Home

Got this information from Mige Harimurti. Ubuntu released its Muslim Edition. I think its worth to try.

different world

what if there is a living species that can see through solid walls? For them, solid walls are just like transparent glass.
