An ontology tool for query formulation in an agent-based context

K. Mahalingam, M.N. Huhns
Proceedings of CoopIS 97: 2nd IFCIS Conference on Cooperative Information Systems  
This paper describes how query formulation can be made simple and less complicated by using ontologies.  ...  It also examines the construction and evaluation of an ontology-based distributed information system developed using the Java language.  ...  In addition, JOE also provides a unique and easy to use query formulation tool that can function as an independent agent and has the ability to communicate with other agents via Java's RMI protocol.  ...

Just-in-Time Knowledge Management [chapter]

Larry Kerschberg, Hanjo Jeong
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The search process is described using concepts from Knowledge Sifter, an agent-based system that accesses heterogeneous sources using Semantic Web Services.  ...  In order to deliver high-value information to user for decision-making, one must understand the user's preferences, biases and decision context.  ...  The Query Formulation Agent invokes the Ontology Agent to instantiate an OWL schema for the 'Place' with Name = 'Rushmore'. 5. The Ontology Agent chooses a service agent based on the initial query.  ...

Ontology-based data integration methods: a framework for comparison

Agustina Buccell, Alejandra Cechich, Nieves R. Brisaboa
2005 Revista Colombiana de Computación  
This survey describes seven systems and three proposals for ontology -based data integration.  ...  An important feature is that all of them use, in some way, ontologies as the way to solve problems about semantic heterogeneity.  ...  The user agents assist the user in formulating queries over an ontology, and in displaying the results of queries in a sensitive manner to the user context.  ...

Integration Between Agents and Remote Ontologies for the Use of Content on the Semantic Web

Felipe Demarchi, Elder Rizzon Santos, Ricardo Azambuja Silveira
2018 Proceedings of the 10th International Conference on Agents and Artificial Intelligence  
In this context, efforts have been made to perform the integration of agents with ontologies, most of which allow the knowledge of the agent to be based on a local ontology.  ...  There are studies to allow agents to navigate through these knowledge bases in search of answers to queries.  ...  The principles of a consolidated BDI agent model were maintained, enabling agents implemented from this tool to have the ability to access data available in remote ontologies for the production and updating  ...

Ontology infrastructure for execution-oriented autonomous agents

Robert E. Wray, Sean A. Lisse, Jonathan T. Beard
2004 Robotics and Autonomous Systems  
Ontologies provide useful technology for organizing and managing large-scale knowledge bases and enabling interoperability in heterogeneous agent environments.  ...  In agents optimized for performance, control structures and domain knowledge are often intertwined, resulting in fast execution but knowledge bases that are brittle and scale poorly.  ...  Acknowledgements This report was prepared under a Department of the Army Small Business Innovation Research Program 2000.2 contract for topic A02-024 (contract #DASW01-03-c-0019).  ...
