  • Outline
    • Introduction
      • Guangdong
      • ISTI
    • AOS & ISTI
    • Discussion & Conclusion
  • Agricultural Information Service Requirement in Guangdong Mountain Area Rural Area Pearl River Delta
    • 17% GDP
    • >40% Population
    • >60% Area
    Task: Help to develop the economic level through informatization in areas outside the Delta hasProperty

  • A 2-Step Role Changing
    • A starter to understand the AOS
    • A practitioner of building and propagating AOS in the community
  • Step1: Starter
    • A sound understanding of the AOS proposal and its scientific mechanism behind
    • A rapid knowledge retrieval and accumulation of semantic web and constructions tools
    • Refereeing to the AOS metadata schemas and that defined by Chinese researchers in CAAS, develop or enhance the existing ontology relevant to southern China
    Be prepared
  • Step2: Practitioner
    • A typical instance of AOS deployment in China
    • To leverage the current information service on the AOS deployment
    To leverage
    • Fitness and generality of the knowledge base
    • New applications development w/ stronger functions and collaborating w/ much wider application areas
    • The communication mechanism (correspondent software facilities, i.e. agents) established between service applications
    • The time duration of finishing above tasks, efforts of propagation, and the acceptance by end users
  • Discussion and Conclusion
    • It is difficult to make a generic instance in a short run in agricultural community
    • from the standpoint of practical service provider, i.e. ISTI, detailed techniques still need more studies and convenient tools for smooth update need to be developed
  • Q&A
    • An Ontology for Agriculture in Southern China (can be a sub-Ontology for China AOS), is the direction right?
    • Which should be the starting point, subset of Agrovoc?
    • Information center: FAO AOS group?
    • Manpower
  • Thanks
