There are numerous efforts underway to enable the creation of ontologies from English. Some of these are based on natural language and some on controlled natural language (CNL). The main benefit of these efforts is the wider adoption of semantic web technologies. In this discussion, we will explore the benefits of controlled natural language ontologies in detail, discuss the core tenets of a standard and a grammar for CNL ontologies, and see a demonstration of a reference implementation for this standard.

This speaker seams to be in an interesting area of software-design. The ontology-philosophy and also IT-term makes me hungry to learn more about this area.

All seams to be "at the glance" - if I use a phrase from him.

A logical thread is missing. All is stimulating and in a commercial way exiting, but no solid scientific background is findable.

Perhaps he wants exactly this.....
