OWL Based Formalisation of Geographic Databases Specifications

Nathalie Abadie, Ammar Mechouche, Sébastien Mustière
2010 International Conference Knowledge Engineering and Knowledge Management  
In this poster, we propose to do that through the elicitation and formalisation of geographic database specifications, relying on OWL ontologies, as recommended in the semantic Web community.  ...  We thus propose a general ontology for eliciting key concepts manipulated by data specifications, and rules to build local ontologies representing knowledge contained in specific data specifications.  ...  As formalisation of data specifications in SDIs is a kind of elicitation of data semantics in a Web environment, we propose to rely on semantic Web standards to do so: our approach is based on ontologies  ...

Asking and Answering Queries Semantically

Paolo Bouquet, Gabriel M. Kuper, Stefano Zanobini
2005 Workshop From Objects to Agents  
The method is based on the idea of semantic elicitation, namely a process which takes in input the structural part of a query (e.g. the XPath part of an XQuery) and returns an expression in a logical language  ...  Since the same process of elicitation can be performed on any path of schemata used to organize data, the decision on whether there is any logical relation between a query and a path in the schema is made  ...  INTRODUCTION The distribution of knowledge across a large number of different and autonomous providers raises the problem of retrieving information from semantically heterogeneous sources.  ...

A Software Platform for Semantics-based Enterprise Knowledge Management

Francesco Taglino, Fabrizio Smith, Maurizio Proietti
2012 Interop-Vlab.It Workshop on Pervasive Computing for Networked Enterprises  
The PIKR provides a set of reference ontologies to semantically describe enterprise knowledge resources, and semantics-based services for accessing and reasoning over such descriptions.  ...  In this paper we address the problem of knowledge management and interoperability in virtual enterprise environments where knowledge is often fragmented and heterogeneous.  ...  The authors wish to thank all BIVEE project partners for their contribution during the development of various ideas and concepts presented in this paper.  ...

A Semantic Web-Based Approach to Knowledge Management for Grid Applications

Liming Chen, Nigel R. Shadbolt, Carole A. Goble
2007 IEEE Transactions on Knowledge and Data Engineering  
We use a real world Grid application, the GEODISE project, as a case study in which the core Semantic Web technologies such as ontologies, semantic enrichment and semantic reasoning are used for knowledge  ...  A Semantic Web based approach is proposed to tackle the six challenges of the knowledge lifecycle -namely, those of acquiring, modelling, retrieving, reusing, publishing and maintaining knowledge.  ...  To this end, we propose a Semantic Web based approach to KM in which we use ontologies for knowledge acquisition and modelling, the web ontology language for knowledge representation and semantic-based  ...

Exploring Ontology-driven Modeling Approach for Multi-agent Cooperation in Emergency Logistics

Li Zhang, Dali Jiang, Youjun Zeng, Yahui Ning, Qianzhu Wang
2014 Journal of Computers  
Although some models have been designed for application in emergency logistics, the knowledge heterogeneity in that field is still a major obstacle to intelligent cooperation.  ...  This model allows multiple agents to share a clear and common understanding about the definition of emergency logistics problem and the semantics of exchanged emergency logistics knowledge.  ...  The emergency logistics ontology is built with the formal representation language OWL, which is the most expressive semantic markup language to date on the Semantic Web.  ...
