Abstract

The Annotation CReatiON for Your Media (ACRONYM) ontology's purpose is to lend context from the real-world (Ambient Intelligence) to the creation of resources. More specifically, it can be used to capture the presence of relevant wireless devices at the time of resource creation. This ontology's original purpose is to be integrated with other ontologies from social networking, multimedia, geography and context-awareness to aid the semi-automatic annotation of media, but more generally it can be used for Ambient Intelligence applications. For example, it can be used to capture the unique Bluetooth addresses of devices near a cameraphone at the time of photograph capture and later link those addresses to the people that own those devices. Alternatively, it can be used to track the RFID addresses of products in a factory and update their status in an information system. The ontology is open to and welcomes extension with various other types of wireless addressing protocols/formats and application-specific semantics.

Classes

Class: acronym:WirelessDevice

Wireless DeviceA physical, real-world, wireless-enabled device. It can be static or mobile. For example, it could be a static RFID chip attached to an exhibit in a museum or it could be a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone carried around by a person.

Properties

Property: acronym:bluetooth

has Bluetooth addressA unique, physical Bluetooth address of this Bluetooth-enabled device, formatted in UPPER-CASE with no value separators e.g. 01234567890A. A device may have many Bluetooth addresses.

Property: acronym:bluetooth_sha1sum

has Bluetooth address sha1sumThe sha1sum of a unique, physical Bluetooth address of this Bluetooth-enabled device, formatted in UPPER-CASE with no value separators e.g. 01234567890A => b10fd7103b52024435be46d2804957a33fec7c6d. A device may have many Bluetooth address sha1sums.

Property: acronym:carrier

has carrierExactly one, physical, real-world thing that carries this physical, real-world, thing. For example, it could be an exhibit in a museum that has a static RFID chip attached to it or it could be a person who carries a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone around. A physical, real-world thing may carry many other physical, real-world things, e.g. a person may carry both a mobile phone and a laptop.

Property: acronym:carries

carriesA physical, real-world thing carried only by this physical, real-world, thing. For example, it could be a static RFID chip attached to an exhibit in a museum or it could be a Bluetooth-enabled mobile phone carried around by a person. A physical, real-world thing may carry many other physical, real-world things, e.g. a person may carry both a mobile phone and a laptop.

Property: acronym:detected

detectedA physical, real-world thing detected nearby to the event of creation of this resource. This property follows suit with the Dublin Core properties for describing resource creation events implicitly with direct properties of the resource without defining an event class. For example, use just like dcterms:created and dcterms:spatial to describe that an exhibit in a museum was detected nearby to the creation of a document (e.g. foaf:Image). The semantics of nearby here are for some broadly human notion of near that does not have a quantitative threshold. This notion only qualitatively specifies that the thing was detected close enough such that its presence lends useful context to the resource's creation. In turn, the semantics of useful here are for a notion of use specific to the goals of the user's application.
