Ontologies are a popular answer to semantic diversity.

You might say the more semantic diversity in a field, the greater the number of ontologies it has. 😉

A natural consequence of the proliferation of ontologies is the need to match or map between them.

As you know, I prefer to capture the reasons for mappings to avoid repeating the exercise over and over but that’s not a universal requirement.

If you have an hourly contract for mapping between ontologies, you may not want to lessen the burden of such mapping, year in and year out.

And for some purposes, mechanical mappings may be sufficient.

This work is a good update on the current state of the art for matching ontologies.
