    Numerous times, I've heard Jim Sphorer say that he's very impressed with
    OpenCyc technology (1.0 will be released on July 1, 2001), so I review
    their webpage an found the following of interest:

    "The Cyc ontology will be released in several formats in order to
    promote the widest adoption of this technology, and facilitate the
    seamless integration of new and existing ontologies. One format will be
    Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency’s (“DARPA”) Agent Markup
    Language (DAML), which adds semantic statements on top of XML, and is
    currently being considered as a standard for the W3C Semantic Web.
    Cycorp's release of this latest DARPA technology may be the catalyst for
    the next such monumental technological innovation after DARPA's
    invention of the Internet.

    DARPA’s Rapid Knowledge Formation (RKF) Project makes extensive use of
    Cyc. According to its Program Manager, Murray Burke, “RKF will make
    possible the rapid creation of semantically rich knowledge bases and
    enable a new generation of intelligent applications for the military.
    This same technology could enable a new generation of intelligent
    knowledge management applications for business and commerce.”
