Locally Constrained Ontologies

Karlis Podnieks
2016 Baltic Journal of Modern Computing  
In the paper, properties of locally constrained ontologies ("locality phenomena") are explored, and Generalized Granularity Theorem is proved, showing that in the Granularity Theorem, all restrictions  ...  It appears that the principal cause of the "tree phenomenon" is the local character of ontology constraints expressed by graphical means of UML class diagrams (roughly, each of such constraints involves  ...  Assume O is a locally constrained ontology.  ...

Logical Relevance in Ontologies

Chiara Del Vescovo, Bijan Parsia, Ulrike Sattler
2012 International Workshop on Description Logics  
Most ontology development environments (ODEs) are term oriented and take a frame-based view of the information in an ontology about a given term.  ...  Hence, we approximate model conservativity using two notions of modules based on locality, that can be efficiently computed, and provide logical guarantees, e.g. they preserve entailments over a given  ...  t that makes α non -local 3. α constrains t if α constrains t either from above, or from below.  ...

Exploiting the Small-Worlds of the Semantic Web to Connect Heterogeneous, Local Ontologies

Henry M. Kim, Markus Biehl
2005 Journal of Special Topics in Information Technology and Management  
Say that heterogeneous local ontologies are all marked-up using standard meta-data.  ...  Then, the meta-data and some universally accepted semantics constitute a shared ontology, which can be used to bridge local ontologies, much as highly connected people who belonged to many cliques (small-worlds  ...  ", local ontologies.  ...

Semantic interoperability in sensor applications making sense of sensor data

Paul Brandt, Twan Basten, Sander Stuiik, Vinh Bui, Paul de Clercq, Luis Ferreira Pires, Marten van Sinderen
2013 2013 IEEE Symposium on Computational Intelligence in Healthcare and e-health (CICARE)  
The main contribution of this paper is an ontology-based approach and architecture to address this problem.  ...  The ontology has been specialized and applied in a remote patient monitoring example, demonstrating the aforementioned potential in the e-health domain.  ...  This implies an explicit separation between a local ontology from another local ontology, meaning that concepts from one local ontology do not proliferate to other local ontologies.  ...

Ontological approach to development of computing with words based systems

Marek Reformat, Cuong Ly
2009 International Journal of Approximate Reasoning  
For the last several years, Artificial Intelligence community has used ontology as a means for representing knowledge.  ...  In other words, an ontology has become a very powerful way of representing not only information but also its semantics.  ...  Constraining ontology A constraining ontology is built in a process of extending a relation ontology.  ...

Mapping High-Level Application Requirements onto Low-Level Cloud Resources

Yih Leong Sun, Terence Harmer, Alan Stewart
2012 Journal of Software Engineering and Applications  
In this paper, an ontology-based resource mapping mechanism is proposed. Domain-specific ontologies are used to specify high-level application's requirements.  ...  These are then translated into high-level infrastructure ontologies which then can be mapped onto low-level descriptions of cloud resources. Cost ontologies are proposed for cloud resources.  ...  These include data transfer within local network, regional network or internet network.  Disk prices refer to the cost of disk operations.  ...

Semi-Automatic Process Composition via Semantics-Enabled Sub-Process Selection and Ranking [chapter]

Fabrizio Smith, Devis Bianchini
2012 Enterprise Interoperability V  
Nevertheless, since sub-process providers are not constrained to adhere to the same ontology, the burden deriving from the semantic annotation is reduced.  ...  However, constraining the adoption of a unique ontology is not feasible and, hence, we propose techniques to handle situations where BPs are annotated with distinct ones, as in the scenario of Figure  ...
