== Abstract ==

KB_Bio_101 contains knowledge from an introductory college level
biology textbook, has been developed as part of Project Halo, and is
now freely available for research use. In this presentation, I will
briefly introduce the knowledge representation used for creating the
KB_Bio_101, and spend bulk of the time describing the design of an
ontology for structure and function and the knowledge encoding
process. KB_Bio_101 is a valuable resource for the ontology research
community to study a variety of problems such as ontology quality,
ontology design patterns, ontology modularization as well as for
creating new ontologies for biological knowledge such as experiments,
models, evolution, etc.


== About the Speaker ==

Dr. Vinay K. Chaudhri is the Program Director at the Artificial
Intelligence Center of SRI International (Menlo Park, California,
USA.) His research focuses on the science and engineering of large
knowledge base systems and spans knowledge representation and
reasoning, deductive question answering, knowledge acquisition, and
innovative applications. He is also interested in entrepreneurship,
and transitioning research ideas into commercial products. He has
worked with a wide range of knowledge representation and reasoning
systems including LOOM, Ontolingua, Cyc, KM, and F-Logic. He was part
of the team that developed the Open Knowledge Base Connectivity (OKBC)
protocol for accessing knowledge bases. He contributed to storage, and
multi-user software that underlies SRI's EcoCyc project. Since 2000,
he has been working on a system to capture knowledge from science
textbooks, and to answer questions at the back of the book.
