Title: Ontology-based Technologies - Technology Transfer from Bioinformatics?
Published: November 05, 2008
Abstract: In the call for paper for OIC 2008 the description of the conference contains the following optimistic outlook: New approaches are required to enable greater flexibility, precision, timeliness and automation of analysis in response to rapidly evolving threats. Ontology-based technology as applied in the areas such as bioinformatics has demonstrated the possibility of gains along all of these dimensions. The time is ripe to extend these gains to other spheres. Ontology-based technologies clearly offer great potential for the intelligence community. In this paper I will discuss whether the intelligence community could adopt technologies that have been proven successful in bioinformatics. For this purpose we have to consider how biologists apply these technologies and how their needs differ from the needs of the intelligence community.
