Knowledge Engineering of Taxonomies, Thesauri, and Ontologies

This tutorial teaches the fundamentals and best practices for creating quality taxonomies, thesauri, and ontologies, whether for the enterprise or for specific knowledge bases in any industry. Emphasis will be on serving users and use cases, rather than on theory. Topics to be covered include: different kinds of knowledge organization systems (taxonomies, thesauri, ontologies, etc.) their differences and their benefits and suitability for different purposes, Semantic Web standards and other standards, thesaurus/taxonomy concept creation, thesaurus/taxonomy relationship creation, ontology modeling basics, linking knowledge organization systems, and enriching a taxonomy or thesaurus to become an ontology and a knowledge graph.
