AgriVIVO: An Ontology based Store of URIs and Relations between Entities in Agricultural Research AgriVIVO: An Ontology based Store of URIs and Relations between Entities in Agricultural Research Presentation Transcript

  • AgriVIVO An Ontology‐based Store of URIs and Relations between Entities in Agricultural Research John Fereira, Valeria Pesce, Jon Corson-Rikert, Ajit MaruCornell UniversityGlobal Forum on Agricultural Research (GFAR)Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations
  • A need for better networking• Fostering collaboration and synergy through greater awareness• Identifying missing expertise• Facilitating team formation• Reducing duplication of research
  • Who are we talking about?• Agricultural researchers• Agricultural practitioners• Agricultural information managers
  • People already part of a community• FAO • IAALD• GFAR • Forago• IICA • CIRAD• E-Agriculture • CGIAR• CIARD • CTA• AIMS • GFAR• FARA • And many more
  • Networking needsHow easy is it today for someone to identify /discover...• potential best collaborators all over the world for a project• a person with an answer to his/her question• an organization running a project on a specific area of research• publications written by a potential collaborator• numbers or geographic distribution of available competencies or ongoing projects
  • How it’s done now Personal connections Conferences Knowledge networksInstitutionalHR databaseand onlinedirectories
  • How to do it more efficiently1. Go beyond serendipity • Gather information systematically • Focus on sources providing data by discipline, organization, or topic • Leverage existing, meaningful relationships
  • How to do it more efficiently2. Go beyond isolated communities • Search several directories / communities • Share people profiles, affiliations, expertice across communities Now Better networking IAALD community FAO Knowledge Café GFAR National databases database of YPARD experts AIMS community CG Map e-agriculture community
  • What is VIVOVIVO is semantic publishing platform formaking data about research activitiesvisible and accessible.
  • History of VIVO • 2003 – VIVO Cornell “Research & Expertise Across Cornell” • 2009 – VIVO Network “Enabling national networking of scientists” $12.2 million, two-year grant from NIH • 2010 – VIVO at USDA First federal organization to commit to using VIVO. Five USDA agencies to participate initially.
  • Example VIVO profile
  • Example VIVO topic
  • VIVO Components• Jena SDB triple store• Core ontology• Bundled ontologies• Ontology editor• Data ingest tools• Apache Solr search engine• Linked Data publishing• CMS features
  • VIVO Ontology Classes• Person (FOAF + VIVO)• Information Resource (VIVO + BIBO)• Organization (FOAF + VIVO)• Area (FAO Geopolitical)• Event (Event)
  • VIVO data flow PubMed HR database OSP grants publications Harvested data mapped to RDF VIVO HTML RDF
  • What is AgriVIVO• AgriVIVO will not replace any existing community or database, it will work as a common registry to interlink the data managed in the existing communities.• Communities and databases will indirectly share data through AgriVIVO IAALD community FAO Knowledge Café GFAR National databases database of Person1 > Affiliation > Institution3 experts Institution3 > Participates in > Project2 YPARD Project2 > Is about > Topic1 AIMS community Person2 > Participates in > Project2 Person2 > Expertise > Topic1 Person1 > Knows > Person2 CG Map Person1 > Author of > Publication1 Person1 > Author of > Publication2 e-agriculture community [...]
  • AgriVIVO data flow AIMS e-Agriculture IAALD … Custom harvesters Map Data to RDF AgriVIVO HTML API RDF
  • AgriVIVO: a data hub• Jena SDB triple store• Core ontology• Bundled ontologies + AgRES, AGROVOC• Ontology editor• Data ingest tools + custom harvest tools• Apache Solr search engine• Linked Data publishing• CMS features• Additional data APIs (Linked Data API)
  • AgriVIVO-driven applications Make data highly available to support applications built using any platform Linked Data API can export data as XML, JSON, RDF, etc
  • AgriVIVO-driven applications Global search engine
  • AgriVIVO-driven applications Visualization
  • AgriVIVO-driven applications Contextual applications
