Professional Experience:


Tetherless World Senior Constellation Professor Department of Computer Science and Cognitive Science Department, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), October, 2007 - present.
Founding co-director of the Tetherless World Constellation - a leading center in semantic web reserach. Management responsibility includes setting technical direction, obtaining and maintaining funding, supervising undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral research, creating new course offerings. Technical research directions include semantic technologies, environments for ontology-based applications, social collaborative accountable systems. Current application focus areas include semantic information integration, virtual observatories, eScience, and trustable systems. Selected sponsored projects include DARPA's Cognitive Assistant that Learns and Organizes (explanation environment), DARPA's Integrated Learning Generalized Integrated Learning Architecture, NSF's Transparent Accountable Data Mining, NSF's Semantic Provenance Capture in Data Ingest Systems.

CEO and President - McGuinness Associates Consulting - 1998 - present.

Consulting in the areas of semantic data integration (particularly scientific data), ontology building and management, knowledge-enhanced search, online applications, semantic web applications, knowledge acquisition, configuration, and conceptual modeling. Clients have included non-profit organizations, for-profit companies, and government agencies in the areas of e-commerce, medical and general scientific informatics, finance, supply chain management, and telecommunications. A few selected clients include: General Motors, Vertical Net, Cisco, and Cerebra (intellectual property recently acquired by WebMethods). At General Motors, helped design the IAAI award winning project that helped reduce variation in GM plants using ontology-enhanced tools. At Vertical Net, acted as interrim Ontology Director and Strategist while helping to build an ontology department. Co-produced Ontolo gy Builder and Ontology Server - a toolkit for ontology building and maintenance. At Cisco, helped form the Meta Data Framework project which is an effort to provide a company wide foundation for providing and using controlled vocabularies in support of organizing and finding corporate information. At Cerebra/Network Inference, I helped obtain Venture Capital Funding from a preferred Silicon Valley firm and provided technology advising and strategic technical assistance in their description logic-based semantic web technology. One current project is the Virtual Solar Terrestrial Observatory (VSTO) , with the National Center for Atmospheric Research supporting an NSF program aimed at using semantic web technologies to improve interoperability of scientific data. We have just deployed two semantically-enabled scientific data access and integration services for scientific domains including solar, solar-terrestrial, and space physics researchers.
