Chris Welty - The Evolving Role of Rules and Ontologies in the  
Semantic Web

As the semantic web evolves with new standards (like OWL-2 and RIF),
and more data (like Linked Open Data), the role of ontologies and rules
in semantic web applications is evolving as well. In this talk I will
briefly present highlights of the new standards and discuss where the
technology and data seem to be taking us, and what role they will play
as the web of data continues to evolve. (Bio)

Doug Lenat - Mistakes Were Made

Douglas Lenat founded and has run the Cyc project since 1984, leading  
a team
building a large and broad ontology, knowledge base, and inference  
engine. This
talk will describe some of the lessons learned along the way, ranging  
from
representation of knowledge, to choice of what knowledge to represent,  
to
knowledge acquisition methodologies, to reasoning strategies and  
tactics. It
will showcase some of the applications that forced Cyc to grapple with  
large
amounts of data, multiple sources, contradictory information, and so  
on, which
have largely come from the intelligence community and (perhaps  
surprisingly, to
this audience) from the clinical research community. Dr. Lenat's work  
in machine
learning won the Computers and Thought Award; he helped establish the  
AAAI, and is a Fellow of the
AAAI and of the AAAS. Prior to Cyc, Dr. Lenat was a computer science  
faculty member at Stanford and
CMU, and he will briefly touch on a few "learning experiences" he had  
back then, that laid the foundation
for his being able to make the mistakes of the last 25 years.
