Hi all,
My name is Omar ISBAITAN, EAST Team Leader and I am from Palestine, age 43 and married with two children's.
EAST Team main product is Dr. Know as an Arabic-based Web 3.0 semantic search engine and entities creator; physical, abstract and things.  Dr. Know allows internet and mobile user to get search results as if they were processed by an aware and conscious human being brain in natural language. This is achieved by combining ontologies, semantic services, semantic information about concepts to support internet and mobile search queries and using these services as the basis to discover the relations between the concepts and related them to entities and model intelligent algorithms to achieve the natural language results.
The algorithm cross references four related technology;  Natural Language Processing, Neural Network, Multi Agent System and Fuzzy Logic Controller to model the five meanings theories of the internet contents; Referential, Ideational, Behavior, Meaning-is-use and Truth-conditional, according to three rules; The whole is more than the sum of parts, Reality is two parts information and elements of reality, and we understand reality by emergence and reduction laws or building things and taking things apart..
In addition, EAST Team is now modeling a new schema for Arabic NLP that can be considered as generic semantic model for modeling natural languages.
Thanks to all

Subject: Welcome to Community Group on Ontology-Lexica

Dear members of the Ontology-Lexica Community Group (resending this email with an appropriate Subject),

First of all, the chairs would like to welcome to everybody on this list. We have by now 29 members in the group, which is very nice. I think it would be nice if everybody could write a brief email introducing themselves and mentioning sth. about their background, what they are working on and why they are interested in this group. This would help everybody to get a feeling for the members of the group.

Further, we have started to produce some preliminary material for the group. As you know, there is a wiki (MediaWiki) that we can all use to work together.

i) You will find the statement of the mission of the group here: http://www.w3.org/community/ontolex/wiki/Goals_and_Scope_of_Ontology-Lexica_Community_Group

ii) You will find a proposal for a schedule that we can use to structure our work. This needs to be thoroughly discussed at one of our first telcos. The proposal of the chairs and other involved people is to start defining use cases from which we can derive requirements on the model later. I think this is a very pragmatic way of kicking of the work that will help us to stay focused and concrete.

iii) We have already added a few use cases that I think are relevant and that the ontology-lexicon model should support: http://www.w3.org/community/ontolex/wiki/Specification_of_Use_Cases; comments are of course welcome. If you have comments on the format of the use case descriptions, please let me know. I think it is important that we have some common format for these use case descriptions and I do think that it is important to make these use cases as concrete as possible (also with concrete examples) to facilitate discussion.

Our plan is to have a first teleconference to kick-off the work of this group. We will arrange this for end of October/early November at the very latest.

In the meantime, I would really appreciate if everybody could introduce themselves.

Best regards,
