A Semantic Representation of Time Intervals in OWL 2

Noura Herradi, Fayçal Hamdi, Elisabeth Métais
2017 Proceedings of the 9th International Joint Conference on Knowledge Discovery, Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management  
In this work, we show the relationship between the OWL 2 semantics and the representation of time intervals; then we introduce a qualitative representation of temporal information based on a set of SWRL  ...  To the best of our knowledge, the most important ones focused on models, whereas Semantic Web and especially OWL 2 offers semantics that can be efficiently used to describe qualitative diachronic information  ...  In this work, we introduce a continuity of what was made before by exploiting the semantics provided by OWL 2 to give more precision to time interval representation.  ...

relations that are common in natural language expressions (i.e., relations between time intervals like "before", "after", etc.) are represented in ontologies.  ...  Representing information that evolves in time in ontologies, as well as reasoning over static and dynamic ontologies are the areas of interest in this work.  ...  However, representation of time in OWL differs because (a) OWL semantics are not equivalent to ER model semantics (e.g., OWL adopts the Open World Assumption while ER model adopts the Closed World Assumption  ...

Imposing Restrictions over Temporal Properties in OWL: A Rule-Based Approach [chapter]

Sotiris Batsakis, Euripides G. M. Petrakis
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Introducing the dimension of time in ontologies turns binary relations into ternary which cannot be handled by OWL.  ...  However, data and property semantics are not preserved in the resulting representations nor can they be handled by ordinary reasoners such as Pellet.  ...  ., instants and intervals) are provided by incorporating OWL-Time into the ontology. A representation based on temporal instants (rather than intervals) is also feasible [2] .  ...

Knowledge Engineering in a Temporal Semantic Web Context

Viorel Milea, Flavius Frasincar, Uzay Kaymak
2008 2008 Eighth International Conference on Web Engineering  
Our focus in this paper is two-fold. We first introduce a new OWL-based temporal formalism -TOWL -for the representation of time, change, and state transitions.  ...  The emergence of Web 2.0 and the Semantic Web as established technologies is fostering a whole new breed of Web applications and systems.  ...  More information is available on the official website 1 of the project.  ...

Temporal Reasoning for Supporting Temporal Queries in OWL 2.0 [chapter]

Sotiris Batsakis, Kostas Stravoskoufos, Euripides G. M. Petrakis
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Temporal representations are defined on time instants rather than on intervals (as it is typical in the literature), resulting into simpler yet equivalent representations.  ...  Qualitative representations are very common in natural language expressions such as in free text or speech and can be proven to be valuable in the Semantic Web.  ...  Representation of dynamic features calls for mechanisms allowing for uniform representation of the notions of time (and of properties varying in time) within a single ontology.  ...

Representing Time and Space for the Semantic Web

Sotiris Batsakis, Ilias Tachmazidis, Grigoris Antoniou
2017 International journal on artificial intelligence tools  
This work proposes several temporal representations for time points and intervals and spatial topological representations in ontologies by means of OWL properties and reasoning rules in SWRL.  ...  representations increases performance at query time.  ...  In [9] , such a representation, embedding semantics by means of SWRL rules, was proposed for spatial and temporal information in OWL.  ...

CHRONOS: A Tool for Handling Temporal Ontologies in Protégé

A. Preventis, P. Marki, E. G. M. Petrakis, S. Batsakis
2012 2012 IEEE 24th International Conference on Tools with Artificial Intelligence  
Temporal relations are in fact ternary (i.e., properties of objects that change in time involve also a temporal value in addition to the object and the subject) and cannot be handled directly by OWL.  ...  We introduce CHRONOS, a plug-in for Protégé OWL editor that facilitates creation and editing of temporal ontologies in OWL.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENT This work has been partially supported by project PortDial (FP7-ICT-2011-SME-DCL, Project No. 296170) of the European Union.  ...

A Semantic Model to Query Spatial–Temporal Data [chapter]

Benjamin Harbelot, Helbert Arenas, Christophe Cruz
2013 Lecture Notes in Geoinformation and Cartography  
In this research we introduce a new approach that uses the concept of "continuum" together with ontologies and semantic web technologies.  ...  The "continuum" allows us to define parent-child relationships between representations of objects.  ...  that the time interval of "object 1" meets the time interval of "object 2".  ...

However, TOQL prevents users from being familiar with the representation of time in ontologies.  ...  Queries are issued as SQL-like statements involving time (i.e., time points or intervals) or high-level ontology concepts that vary in time.  ...  Acknowledgement This work was supported by project TOWL: "Time-determined ontology based information system for real time stock market analysis" (FP6-STREP, contract number 26896) of the European Union  ...
