    1. need to extend the current ontologies to add more information of our entities. Note that we are now making public, not only the scientific research itself, but also its reviews, drafts and all versions between the first submission and the final article. Furthermore, we need to include these field that contain information about the Blockchain transactions. In the latter case, there are s o m e i m m a t u r e p r o j e c t t h a t a l r e a d y t a c k l e t h i s t a s k ( h t t p s : //semanticblocks.files.wordpress.com/2017/03/linked_blockchain_paper_final.pdf), but more work need to be done in this regard

    2. Orvium can not disrupt the academic sector without following the rules of the semantic web. However, the current ontologies, agreed by the W3C and other entities as standards for scholarship publications, do not cover all the information Orvium's is aimed to provide. In other words, part of the Orvium's mission is to enrich the Academic Knowledge Network with more granularity and traceability of each piece of science shared on the Web

Today wehave to focus on what matters most— on learning andimproving ourselves, and on everything that is directlyrelated to it, including a substantial reallocation of our verylimited material and intellectual resources in favor of targetednatural science research to improve the human nature andthe human communities of various scales and calibers. Wemust not allow our own self-destruction. The gap betweenthe high, and further growing, level of technologicalprogress and our, almost frozen, and egoistic, and thereforeprimitive mentality (in other words, an extremely low levelof altruism of our genotype), caused by our biological originfrom the animal world, will rapidly increase with time.

    1. for nothing destroys description so much as words, and yet there is nothing more necessary than to place before the eyes of men certain things the existence of which is neither provable nor probable, but which, for this very reason, pious and scholarly men treat to a certain extent as existent in order that they may be led a step further towards their being and their becoming. --Joseph Knecht's holograph translation (M.L.)

    2. Some crucial old weaknesses of IBIS remain the same: the danger of getting lost in the web of cross-references, the lack of a 'synoptic' overview of the state of resolution, and the 'logic of the next question", i.e. the problem of prestructuring the possibilities for guiding the designers' deliberations into plausible directions.

    2. prospective pathway. In prospective pathways, semantic scientific knowledge is available before the article is written.

      We are building an Augmented Authoring system that let's authors write about and link to things of interest in a way that gives rise a knowledge graph dynamically. This emergent knowledge graph captures the semantic contexts and augments the author's ability to understand and be understood.

      We need to embrace this principle, and make sure that it cannot be exterminated later. see Google Removes 'Don't Be Evil'

    1. “Don’t be evil” has been part of the company’s corporate code of conduct since 2000. When Google was reorganized under a new parent company, Alphabet, in 2015, Alphabet assumed a slightly adjusted version of the motto, “do the right thing.” However, Google retained its original “don’t be evil” language until the past several weeks.

      When the don't be evil is replace with the aspiration to know what's right for the people, and act on it, especially by an entity with the might of Google, is a slippery slope to becoming Big Brother.

    1. I shall not try to settle which is chicken and which is egg: whether we are able to understand the world because it is hierarchic or whether it appears hierarchic because those aspects of it which are not elude our understanding and observation.

    1. The findings show that using a focus+context interface technique in a small display can support readers' incidental memory for spatial location of information within documents. Further, it shows that a scrolling interface for the same size display does not. Since we know that spatial location is important in reading, we can conclude that this alternative technique may well confer some benefits to the reader in terms of better comprehension, content recall and information retrieval when reading fi'om small screens. In short, this technique appears to be successful to some degree in providing readers with some of the "sense of text" they get when reading ffi'om paper. In presenting this study, we are not necessarily advocating this particular implementation of a focus+context interface. Rather, our intention is to point toward a class of techniques which designers might consider as an alternative approach to reading and viewing documents on small displays

    1. A bookseller may want to integrate data coming from different publishers. The data can be imported into a common RDF model, eg, by using converters to the publishers’ databases. However, one database may use the term “author”, whereas the other may use the term “creator”. To make the integration complete, and extra definition should be added to the RDF data, describing the fact that the relationship described as “author” is the same as “creator”. This extra piece of information is, in fact, a vocabulary (or an ontology), albeit an extremely simple one.

    3. One possible response to my examples is to say, "Doug, be patient. These are new problems and hard problems and it takes time to solve them. We will have better tools and better laws over time. Just wait." An off-handed response might be that I have been trying to be patient for fifty years. But a much more important, meaningful response is that patience has nothing to do with it. These problems are not due to lack of time, but are instead due to structural factors that create a systematic bias against the improvement of what I call "Collective IQ."
