  • Linked data cloud is not knowledge engineering – it is just a bunch of identified and linked concepts. Particular relevance to Petamedia: musicbrainz, bbc totp (top left) http://musicbrainz.org/
  • FAST: need to align different current event models
  • FAST: currently have a “Linked Data” event model.
  • which means we can also explore events. But these interfaces are not event specific. We want to develop event-centric interfaces. We don’t know what these are yet. This would be one of the goals of the IRP.

  • Event-based centric interfaces Action or occurrence taking place at a certain time at a specific location Useful for organizing and browsing collections of media Useful for discovering complex relationships between data Need for an expressive event model for connecting pieces of data Not Yet Another Model! 08/12/2009 - LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events - ASWC 2009, Shanghai, China - 15
  • There are already many event ontologies Event Model Ontology URL CIDOC CRM http://cidoc.ics.forth.gr/OWL/cidoc_v4.2.owl ABC Ontology http://metadata.net/harmony/ABC/ABC.owl Event Ontology http://purl.org/NET/c4dm/event.owl# EventsML-G2 http://www.iptc.org/EventsML/ Dolce+DnS Ultralite http://www.loa-cnr.it/ontologies/DUL.owl F http://events.semantic- multimedia.org/ontology/2008/12/15/model.owl OpenCyc Ontology http://www.opencyc.org/ SEM http://semanticweb.cs.vu.nl/2009/04/event/ 08/12/2009 - LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events - ASWC 2009, Shanghai, China - 16
  • Fundamental Types of Events Aspect: ongoing activity vs transition between states cyc:Event ∩ cyc:StaticSituation ≤ cyc:Situation cidoc:E5.Event ∩ cidoc:E3.Condition_State ≤ cidco:E2.Temporal_Entity abc:Event is a transition between abc:Situation ≈ cidoc:E3.Condition_State Agentivity: who has produced the event? cyc:Action, dul:Action ≤ Event E7.Activity ≤ E5.Event abc:Action ∩ abc:Event = Ø Events are fully described as a set of actions taken by specific agents Issue for modeling e.g. earthquakes Interpretation matters! Identifiable changes or not? Agency can be assigned? dul:Situation describe dul:Event dul:Action, dul:Process ≤ dul:Event 08/12/2009 - LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events - ASWC 2009, Shanghai, China - 17
  • Events and Temporal Intervals Relating events to chronological spans of time Persistent, socially attributed meanings Arbitrary system for subdividing an abstract space Modeling a class for temporal intervals and use an OP ABC, CIDOC, EO (owl:TemporalEntity) Modeling a XML Schema typed value and use a DP Pro: simplicity, values expressed as xsd:date or xsd:dateTime Cons: inability to express uncertain period or when there is no coincidence with date units Having two properties dul:hasEventDate ... litteral value dul:isObservableAt ... dul:TimeInterval 08/12/2009 - LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events - ASWC 2009, Shanghai, China - 18
  • Events, Spaces and Places Relating events to places Semantically significant places Abstract spatial regions Support spatial regions only: ABC, CIDOC, EO eo:Event eo:place wgs84:SpatialThing cidoc:E5.Event cidoc:P7.took_place_at cidoc:E53.Place Support the place/space distinction dul:Event dul:hasLocation dul:Place dul:Event dul:hasRegion dul:SpaceRegion Most flexible approach: allow to resolve to places with no geographical coordinate systems (e.g. mythical events, SecondLife) 08/12/2009 - LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events - ASWC 2009, Shanghai, China - 19
  • Participation in events Object involvement in events: Simple involvement in event: abc:Event abc:involves owl:Thing (≤ abc:Actuality) cidoc:E5.Event cidoc:P12.occurred_in_the_presence_of cidoc:E77 dul:Event dul:hasParticipant dul:Object eo:Event eo:factor owl:Thing Tangible thing which results from an event: abc:Event abc:hasResult owl:Thing eo:Event eo:product owl:Thing Agent participation in events: abc:hasParticipant ≤ abc:hasPresence cidoc:P11.had_participant ≤ cidoc:P14.carried_out_by dul:involvesAgent ≤ abc:hasParticipant 08/12/2009 - LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events - ASWC 2009, Shanghai, China - 20
  • Events, Influence, Purpose and Causality Making broad assertions linking events to any thing cidoc:P12.occurred_in_the_presence_of, cidoc:P15.was_influenced_by eo:factor, abc:hasResult F model uses the DnS pattern 08/12/2009 - LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events - ASWC 2009, Shanghai, China - 21
  • Events, Parts and Composition Event A being part of event B ≠ A's timespan ϵ B's timespan cidoc:P86.falls_within for expressing containment among timespans cidoc:P9.consist_of ≈ eo:sub_event ≈ abc:isSubEventOf Linking sub-events with parthood dul:hasPart The 20th century contains the year 1923 World War II included Pearl Harbour Linking sub-events with composition dul:hasConstituent The French revolution is composed of the Bastille catch 08/12/2009 - LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events - ASWC 2009, Shanghai, China - 22

  • Applications 1/2 Extracting events from Wikipedia Timelines Timeline of World War II 7 years specific timelines involving people at days granularity Timeline of Irish History Single geographical location spread of wide temporal range Timeline for the day of the September 11 attacks 147 fine-grained events from a single day Timeline of evolution Very coarse-grained events associated with times far in the past 08/12/2009 - LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events - ASWC 2009, Shanghai, China - 26

From 1910 to 1916 Parsing dates, geo-coding place names, linking person names with DBpedia Generating 1041 events modeled with the EO vocabulary 08/12/2009 - LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events - ASWC 2009, Shanghai, China - 27

  • Conclusion and Future Work Events are core in our thoughts and useful for describing History, exploring archival records, structuring our lives LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events a set of mappings between event data models http://linkedevents.org/ontology/ Event directory providing stable URI for events Challenges: Event description vs event interpretation Event identification: how to map multiple textual description to the same event identifier? events are linguistic phenomena rather than objectively existing ... but we want two descriptions of past occurrences are the same event Publish linked descriptions of large repositories of upcoming events 08/12/2009 - LODE: Linking Open Descriptions of Events - ASWC 2009, Shanghai, China - 29
