Rules and Ontology Based Data Access [chapter]

Guohui Xiao, Martin Rezk, Mariano Rodríguez-Muro, Diego Calvanese
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In OBDA an ontology defines a high level global vocabulary for user queries, and such vocabulary is mapped to (typically relational) databases.  ...  To the best of our knowledge, this results in the first system supporting all of the following W3C standards: the OWL 2 QL ontology language, R2RML mappings, SWRL rules with linear recursion, and SPARQL  ...  Stardog 9 is a commercial RDF database developed by Clark&Parsia that supports SPARQL 1.1 queries and OWL 2/SWRL for reasoning.  ...

Processing OWL2 Ontologies using Thea: An Application of Logic Programming

Vangelis Vassiliadis, Jan Wielemaker, Chris Mungall
2009 International Semantic Web Conference  
Thea offers the ability to seamless connect to the java OWL API and OWLLink servers. Thea also includes support for SWRL.  ...  Prolog, with its logic-based, declarative semantics offers many advantages as a host programming language for querying and processing OWL2 ontologies.  ...  Standard prolog queries operate on the asserted axiom database, and the entailed/1 predicate is used to interrogate the reasoned database.  ...

Time-Oriented Question Answering from Clinical Narratives Using Semantic-Web Techniques [chapter]

Cui Tao, Harold R. Solbrig, Deepak K. Sharma, Wei-Qi Wei, Guergana K. Savova, Christopher G. Chute
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The framework is centered by an OWL ontology called CNTRO (Clinical Narrative Temporal Relation Ontology), and contains three major components: time normalizer, SWRL based reasoner, and OWL-DL based reasoner  ...  In this paper, we introduce a Semantic-Web based framework, which provides an API for querying temporal information from clinical narratives.  ...  We can use SWRL to add semantic assertions and enable Horn-like rules that can be used to infer new knowledge from an OWL ontology and reason about OWL individuals.  ...

Extending SWRL to Express Fully-Quantified Constraints [chapter]

Craig McKenzie, Peter Gray, Alun Preece
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We indicate where in our application it makes sense to use the existing SWRL directly, and where our CIF/SWRL allows more complex constraints to be expressed in a natural manner. 1  ...  While our approach differs from SWRL in that existential quantifiers are handled explicitly rather than using OWL-DL constructs, we believe our proposal is still fully compatible with the use of the various  ...  to the abstract syntax given in SWRL and OWL documentation, using the same EBNF syntax.  ...

Interpreting SWRL Rules in RDF Graphs

Jing Mei, Harold Boley
2006 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
For dealing with SWRL/RDF rules, we regard 'Implies' as an OWL class, and extract all 'Implies' rules from an RDF database that represents a SWRL knowledge base.  ...  In this paper we propose to make the model-theoretic semantics of SWRL compatible with RDF by interpreting SWRL rules in RDF graphs.  ...  In our SWRL interpreter, Sesame 5 -an open source RDF database with support for RDF Schema inferencing and querying -is used as a database of ground triples, which also act as the initial ground facts  ...
