Seismic Semantic Federation: The View from Machu Picchu

Beth Cardier

Interoperability between ontologies is currently enabled by abstractions that standardize or bridge their compositional elements. This paper describes how geometric form will be used as a more flexible ontological abstraction, one that is capable of not only tolerating heterogeneity, but leveraging it. We exploit this capability to include a narratological mechanism —nested context —in our ontological design, drawing on structures explained in Bakhtin's 'dialogics' of modern prose. It is expected that this mechanism will enable better representation and management of causal processes in our predictive intelligence system.
