Tuesday, December 12, OMG Object Database Technology Users and Vendors Roundtable

For those of you interested in standards, here is an event you may want to consider attending, the:

Object Database Technology Users and Vendors Roundtable
on Tuesday, December 12, 2007 08:00-12:00 am, part of the
OMG Technical Meeting in Burlingame, CA

The Meeting is Sponsored by the OMG Middleware and Related Services Platform Task Force (MARS)

The Committee is composed of Michael Card Char Wales Anat Ghafni and Kazimierz Subieta.

I copy here the Objective of the meeting, as written by the above Commitee:

"Gather together vendors in and users of Object Database Technology in order to learn and share their opinions on the work performed so far by the OMG Object Database Technology Working Group (ODBTWG).

Working from the responses to the Request for Information (RFI) issued in February 2006, the WG has been investigating the research done by Prof. Kazimierz Subieta of the Polish Japanese Institute for Information Technology (PJIT) in Warsaw, Poland. Prof. Subieta’s team has developed an approach called “Stack-Based Architecture (SBA)” for defining the contents of an object database, the semantics of an abstract stack-based query processor, and its associated query language (SBQL). The WG considers this work to represent the object equivalent of the relational calculus in that it provides a precisely-defined, semantically complete set of definitions of what objects are, how they are stored, and how they can be queried.

Looking ahead, we would like to consider basing any future object database standard on the SBA object model so that the language bindings, query languages, etc. that follow are well-defined, self-consistent, and complete. Doing this would address many of the criticisms leveled at the earlier ODMG standards (e.g,, ODMG 3.0).

The objective of this meeting is not only to explain how we think the principles of the SBA could be incorporated into a future object database standard but also to listen to the opinions of object database vendors and users regarding this idea. To that end, nothing will be off limits. Let this be a forum for open discussions on what future object database standards should or should not look like, open-source collaborative projects such as reference implementations or conformance test suites, trends in the object database marketplace, level of user interest in object database technology, etc. "

And here is the agenda:

If a machine can invent, does this mean the end of the patent system as we know it? The patent system, both in the US and Europe, allows companies to protect their inventions and helps foster innovation. However, Artificial Intelligence (AI) could be set to disrupt the patent system as we know it. This talk will examine how AI may change the patent landscape in the years to come. Furthermore, ways in which companies can best protect their AI related inventions will be examined from both a US and...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
