Emanuele Ciapessoni, Piergiorgio Mirandola, Alberto Coen-Porisini, Dino Mandrioli, Angelo Morzenti
1999 ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology  
We suggest an evolutionary rather than revolutionary attitude in the introduction of formal methods in the practice of industrial applications and we report on our long-standing experience which involves  ...  an academic institution, Politecnico di Milano, two main industrial partners, ENEL and CISE, and occasionally a few other industries.  ...  We also want to thank all the people from the industry whose cooperation has been invaluable to the outcome of this research.  ...

ASQFor: Automatic SPARQL query formulation for the non-expert

Muhammad Rizwan Saeed, Charalampos Chelmis, Viktor K. Prasanna, Carlos Linares López
2018 AI Communications  
Specifically, we propose Automatic SPARQL Query Formulation (ASQFor), a systematic framework to issue semantic queries over RDF repository using simple concept-based search primitives.  ...  To date, many interfaces for querying Ontologies have been developed. However, such interfaces rely on predefined templates and require expensive customization.  ...  Figure 2 shows the Ontology we used for our experiments. Based on this Ontology, we converted the tabular data into RDF triples in a prepossessing step.  ...

Next Generation Search Interfaces – Interactive Data Exploration and Hypothesis Formulation [chapter]

Jane Hunter, Katya Falkovych, Suzanne Little
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
More recently researchers have been investigating interactive, graphical and multimedia approaches which use ontologies to model the knowledge space.  ...  Hypothesis formulation does not occur spontaneously but is an interactive, evolutionary process which grows out of background experience and assumptions which lead to ideas about relationships within the  ...  The Data Interface refers to the metadata structure (harmonized ontologies) to determine which knowledge repositories should be queried.  ...
