Poss-OWL 2: Possibilistic Extension of OWL 2 for an Uncertain Geographic Ontology

Bal-Bourai Safia, Mokhtari Aicha
2014 Procedia Computer Science  
In this paper, we present an extension of the OWL 2, named Poss-OWL 2, based on our Poss − SROIQ(D) description logic (DL). Then we describe some reflections about the inference system.  ...  Nevertheless, classical ontology languages are not able to represent incomplete and uncertain knowledge, which are very important characteristics of several situations in geographic domain.  ...  This leads us to ask about the structure of the spatial data in their different dimensions, namely: spatial and temporal attributes under uncertainty.  ...

Doing so makes it possible to query over incomplete, uncertain, and approximate historical dates using SPARQL and to infer possible temporal sequences using reasoners.  ...  But temporal ontologies can be dauntingly complex even for experienced data modelers, and as there are a number of possible ways to model incomplete, uncertain, and approximate historical dates, there  ...  Doing so makes it possible to query over incomplete, uncertain, and approximate historical dates using SPARQL and to infer possible temporal sequences using reasoners.  ...

Building the Seshat Ontology for a Global History Databank [chapter]

Rob Brennan, Kevin Feeney, Gavin Mendel-Gleason, Bojan Bozic, Peter Turchin, Harvey Whitehouse, Pieter Francois, Thomas E. Currie, Stephanie Grohmann
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The ontology was developed to transition from traditional social science data collection and storage techniques to an RDF-based approach.  ...  Thus the paper provides guidance for deploying RDF in the social sciences. Within Seshat, OWL-based data quality management will assure the data is suitable for statistical analysis.  ...  However given the emphasis on fixing the data quality issue in the wiki it has proved necessary to move to OWL for the ontology rather than using a linked data/RDFS approach.  ...

Jakob Huber, Mathias Niepert, Jan Noessner, Joerg Schoenfisch, Christian Meilicke, Heiner Stuckenschmidt, Pascal Hitzler
2016 Semantic Web Journal  
We show how to translate OWL-EL as well as RDF schema to Markov logic and how to use ROCKIT for applying MAP inference on the given set of formulas.  ...  These scenarios are ontology matching, and knowledge base verification, with a special focus on temporal reasoning.  ...  In [4, 2] OWL 2.0 is extended in order to enable temporal reasoning for supporting temporal queries.  ...

Simone Fuchs, Stefan Rass, Bernhard Lamprecht, Kyandoghere Kyamakya
2008 Proceedings of the First International Conference on Ambient Media and Systems  
One key-enabler for describing and exchanging context between intelligent vehicles, which use it for reasoning about their environment, is a common context-model.  ...  In this paper, we briefly discuss the influence of the driving context on decision-making and present an OWL-based context-model for abstract scene representation of driving scenarios.  ...  For modeling the spatio-temporal data, the model was inspired by existing approaches, discussed in section 2.2, especially [15] and [13] .  ...

2008 Electronic Communications of the EASST  
For integration with logic programming a prototypical development of an overtaking assistant is shown to demonstrate the feasibility of the approach.  ...  For traffic rules, we integrate the ontological scene description with a logic programming environment, to enable complex and powerful reasoning on the given information.  ...  Also, the reasoning mechanism or the content of the rule base are not explained in detail.
