The defn that reads "A specification of a conceptualization. Proposed by Tom Gruber (1992)." Is this distinct from the sense that precedes it? And who is Tom Gruber (he's not in wikipedia)? -- WikiPedant 15:58, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
Tom Gruber definition of ontology (see http://www-ksl.stanford.edu/kst/what-is-an-ontology.html) is one of the most frequently used in computer sciences. It is much more general than the sense that precedes it, since it makes no assumption how this conceptualisation will be done (via relationship in the previous definition). —This comment was unsigned.
I don't see how "a specification of a conceptualization" is any different from "a system model". --EncycloPetey 16:25, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
I'm not satisfied that the "proposal" of one professor (even a Stanford professor) on his web site is enough to merit inclusion in a dictionary. I think this defn fails to meet the criteria for attestation at WT:CFI. But, even if the defn were OK, at the minimum it would need to be merged with the preceding defn. -- WikiPedant 21:21, 19 August 2008 (UTC)
This discussion died long ago, and I see no good reason, here or elsewhere, to retain the rfv'd sense. So I have removed it. -- WikiPedant 23:30, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
