2018 Semantic Web Journal  
We evaluated OptiqueVQS with both domain experts and casual users and qualitatively compared our system against prominent visual systems for ontology-driven query formulation and exploration of semantic  ...  OptiqueVQS implements a number of unique techniques distinguishing it from analogous query formulation systems.  ...  These evaluations led us to the second requirement: (R2) Provide a multi-paradigm user-interface where a diagram-based paradigm has the central role and is supported by form-based and iconic representation  ...

Ontology-based end-user visual query formulation: Why, what, who, how, and which?

Ahmet Soylu, Martin Giese, Ernesto Jimenez-Ruiz, Evgeny Kharlamov, Dmitriy Zheleznyakov, Ian Horrocks
2016 Universal Access in the Information Society  
This article presents and argues for ontology-based visual query formulation for end users; discusses its feasibility in terms of ontology-based data access, which virtualises legacy relational databases  ...  An ontology is more promising than the logical schema of the underlying data for guiding users in formulating queries, since it provides a richer vocabulary closer to the users' understanding.  ...  Visual Compu4ng Ontology--driven Informa4on Systems Ontology--driven User Interfaces Direct Manipula4on End--user Development/Programming Fig. 6 Ontology-based visual query formulation as a multi-front  ...

Automated API Discovery, Composition, and Orchestration with Linked Metadata

Diego F. Serrano Suarez
Based on this model, we propose a methodology for a automated process that produces semantically valid composition chains, based on iterative subgraph isomorphism.  ...  In today's highly distributed, multi-platform world, there is a huge potential for creating added value through service coordination.  ...  The Query Console For experienced users, direct manipulation of SPARQL queries is provided through a Query Console ( Figure 5.1) , similar to other SPARQL query editors.  ...
