Members of SIRM have published a study on a new kind of ontologies that integrate soft data and build something like an Ontology 2.0, called 'ontology manifold'. Internet users can contribute to specific parts of the ontology by voting up properties, which generates a weighted image of the property spectrum of concepts. All is explained in a recent paper pre-published on ResearchGate, see here: https://www.researchgate.net/publication/236346774_Harnessing_the_Wisdom_of_Crowds_Ontology_Manifolds_and_Social_Ontologies?ev=prf_pub"

Back to Blog / Work Plan Update

The Thai government has extended the holidays for universities until Nov. 14 this year because of the flooding situation, which still is a problem in Bangkok, of course, and in many parts of the country. Naresuan University has not been affected by flooding, but the many reservoirs and canals on campus had been filled to their limits. Now the situation is easing day by day.

A map of the flood regions can be found here:

An update of SIRM preliminary working plan:

  • Ontology Manifolds, a new class of dynamic ontologies created with crowd's cooperation 
  • Ontology-driven systems (e.g. search system for regional attractions and recommender system for the elderly)
  • iPad solutions for primary school pupils (the new government has announced the policy of distributing iPads to grade 1 students recently)

Happy New Year 2553 B.E. (2010 AD)

2010 is starting slowly here, with the week of midterm tests.

You can see strange things from time to time, such as cars with plates from other countries. The Germans seem to be popular, because I notice a lot of cars with "D" as country code on plate.
