The IT department organized an expert lecture about “Ontology View for Management Information Base” for the Advanced Diploma and Bachelor students on May 22, 2016 in the VIP room. One of the objectives of this event was to enhance the knowledge of students on Ontology and its evolution and recent trends. The programme also aimed to educate the students about the Ontology implementation for Management Information Base (MIB).

The speaker for the event was Dr. Vinod Kumar Shukla, Programme Leader & Asst. Prof. (CS) at Amity University, Dubai. He started his presentation by discussing the origins of internet and its evolution to its present form. His presentation correlated the Ontology with evolution of Web1.0, Web 2.0 and Web 3.0, and its association with XML to help the students understand the concept and visualize the semantics of ontology. Dr . Shukla discussed in details the concepts of Management Information Base (MIB) and how it is constructed in the monitoring and monitored network equipment. He also explained that different kinds of network equipment with various communication protocols have their distinctive network management models, and that each management model has its own set of MIB objects. He also covers SNMP objects and how it is stored in MIB Ontology. He stressed to the students that Ontology evaluation will become an important task that must be addressed if ontologies are to be widely adopted, both in the semantic web and in other semantically enabled technologies. He concluded his talk by emphasizing that information technology ontologies are the pillars of the emerging semantic web.

At the end of the workshop, Mr.Safik Khan, HOD-IT thanked the speaker and presented him with a certificate and memento as tokens of gratitude. The session ended at 11:30 a.m. There were a total of 24 students present in the workshop.
