At Fujitsu, I am managing and coordinating our work and research into the
Agentcities initiative (for more information, see
http://www.agentcities.org/). This work is looking at the relationship
between ontologies, service descriptions, content languages and interation
protocols across heterogeneous communicating agents for the purposes of
promoting interoperability and a dynamic service environment. Our work is
contributing to two Agentcities projects; a European Information, Science
and Technology 5th Framework-funded project called EU Agentcities.RTD and a
yet-to-be-funded proposal called Agentcities.US which has been submitted to
the NIST Advanced Technical Program. I am also a member of the Foundation of
Intelligent Physical Agents (FIPA) and am involved in standardisation
activities on ontologies, semantic frameworks and domains and policies.

My interest in the WebOnt working group is primarily to ensure that any
ontology metholody proposed and approved is suitable for promoting
interoperability between heterogeneous agents. Secondarily, I can provide a
liaison point between EU Agentcities.RTD and FIPA since I am the duly
appointed liaison officer for both groups. Each of these groups will be
keenly following the activities of the WebOnt group and may be able to
provide ready implementors, users and feedback of any approved technologies.

Man has such a predilection for systems and abstract deductions that he is
ready to distort the truth intentionally, he is ready to deny the evidence
of his senses only to justify his logic. -- Fyodor Dostoyevsky
