Semantic Interoperability

Semantic Interoperability is associated with the ability of computer systems, applications and services to automatically communicate content and have that content properly interpreted so as to produce useful results as defined by the end users of both systems. It concerns thus human rather than machine interpretation of the content and is directly tied to communities of practice as the meaning of content may change by context and over time and different requirements in different domains may result in different information models. For the Greek Interoperability Centre, the scientific domain of semantic interoperability encompasses the individual areas of:

  • Ontology Engineering
  • Knowledge Management
  • Semantic Annotation
  • Data Modeling
  • Core Components Modeling
  • XML Schema Creation

These areas constitute the core of many research activities undertaken by the Decision Support Systems Lab, within the frame of which G.I.C. operates. In this context, G.I.C. know-how involves domain-specific ontologies, targeted data repositories, semantic integration approaches and methodologies for information modeling and reuse.
