Towards Scalable and Complete Query Explanation with OWL 2 EL Ontologies

Zhe Wang, Mahsa Chitsaz, Kewen Wang, Jianfeng Du
2015 Proceedings of the 24th ACM International on Conference on Information and Knowledge Management - CIKM '15  
To the best of our knowledge, no existing algorithm can efficiently and completely explain conjunctive queries (CQs) w.r.t. ELHontologies.  ...  Besides standard query answering, there is also a need for such systems to be coupled with explanation facilities, in particular to explain missing query answers (i.e. desired answers of a query which  ...  for query abduction in ELH ⊥ .  ...

The RacerPro knowledge representation and reasoning system

Volker Haarslev, Kay Hidde, Ralf Möller, Michael Wessel
2012 Semantic Web Journal  
RacerPro is a software system for building applications based on ontologies. The backbone of RacerPro is a description logic reasoner.  ...  With its query and rule languages, RacerPro goes well beyond standard inference services provided by other OWL reasoners.  ...  We also would like thank Olaf Noppens for providing the Protégé 4 plugin for RacerPro. An earlier interface for Racer called RICE was built by Ronald Cornet.  ...

Approaches to Abductive and Inductive Reasoning in Lightweight Ontologies

Mahsa Chitsaz, University, My, Kewen Wang
For abductive reasoning, we study one important explanation problem for DL ontologies, referred to as query abduction.  ...  Hence, we study query abduction that aims to find explanations for the given observations (i.e. a query with answers) that together with the knowledge base will be satisfied if the explanations add to  ...  Acknowledgements I thank my principal supervisor, Professor Kewen Wang, for granting me the  ...

Names and the Yorkshire Heritage in 'Jane Eyre'

2008 Notes and Queries  
Moreover, just as Richardson’s Lovelace abducted and raped Clarissa, so Rochester had abducted and ruined a great heiress in order to coerce her into marriage.  ...  NOTES AND QUERIES December 2008 Thomas Fairfax was celebrated for his chivalry and for saving the stained glass of York Minster; and their names were even more celebrated locally than in the national history  ...

Using Ontology-Based Data Access to Enable Context Recognition in the Presence of Incomplete Information

Veronika Thost
2017 Künstliche Intelligenz  
Systems for OBDA thus may apply logical reasoning to answer queries; they use the ontological knowledge to infer new information, which is only implicitly given in the data.  ...  Ontology-based data access (OBDA) augments classical query answering in databases by including domain knowledge provided by an ontology.  ...  Figure 1 . 3 : 13 Our setting for ontology-based temporal query answering: a temporal query addressing a temporal knowledge base.  ...

Computing and Explaining Query Answers over Inconsistent DL-Lite Knowledge Bases

Meghyn Bienvenu, Camille Bourgaux, François Goasdoué
2019 The Journal of Artificial Intelligence Research  
Several inconsistency-tolerant semantics have been introduced for querying inconsistent description logic knowledge bases.  ...  The first contribution of this paper is a practical approach for computing the query answers under three well-known such semantics, namely the AR, IAR and brave semantics, in the lightweight description  ...  The IAR and brave semantics, by contrast, enjoy polynomial data complexity for DL-Lite ontologies (and more generally, all ontology languages that admit first-order query rewritings) (Lembo, Lenzerini  ...

I would like to thank Fabrizio Riguzzi for his valuable help with the implementation of the algorithm for learning the effect axioms. Acknowledgements.  ...  We thank our reviewers, both known and anonymous, for their comments and suggestions.  ...  We show that shyK is strictly more expressive than ELH. In particular, we provide a polynomial-time transformation that maps each ELH ontology to an equivalent shyK one.  ...

THE RHETORIC OF PROBABILITY FROM THE NEW SCIENCE TO COMMON SENSE The Rhetoric of Probability from the New Science to Common Sense

Abstract Of, Dissertation
2017 unpublished
As Riccardo Capoferro explains, "the plague can be reduced to two different ontological frameworks, which entails a form of ontological hesitation," and thus propounds the question "why is it so important  ...  We will return to some examples of modern possible worlds analysis later, but we might say for now that the first arc of this sort of criticism is to address ontological questions of fiction.  ... 

Philosophies of retribution: Kyd, Shakespeare, Webster, and the revenge tragedy genre

Christopher James Crosbie
But it has left intact the prevailing assumption that such plays feature revenge as their principal focus, their very reason for existing as plays.  ...  For while critical discourse has read revenge as principally concerned with matters of justice and law, the retribution motif, unique among other early modern dramatic conventions, continually recalls  ...  Hamlet's opening query ("Now, mother, what's the matter?")  ...

Royal materials: the object of queens in Late Medieval English romance Recommended Citation

Thomas Hughes, Blake, Thomas Blake, Hughes, Thomas Hughes, Blake
2014 unpublished
Each chapter examines a literary queen typically dismissed by subject-oriented ontologies as insubstantial.  ...  Through contact with charged material objects that are pivotal to romance plots, queens query patriarchal materials, exposing their underlying "thingness" and malleability.  ...  Similarly, Joseph Kimhi, a Jewish polemicist writing in the twelfth century, queries 49 Cuffel 155.  ... 

Scaffold Fiction: Execution and Eighteenth-Century British Literature

Jody Cooper, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa, Université D'Ottawa / University Of Ottawa
For the first time in Western literary history, representations of execution usually had something to imply about execution itself, not merely the justness of a particular individual's fate.  ...  Many of these internments are accompanied not by the threat of suicide (the abducted virgin's recourse) but of execution.  ...  Descriptions of execration are so frequently applied to the three most prominent characters that they bleed together, erase boundaries, and in so doing seem to define general human ontology.  ...

The Modernist Defense of Poetry in Prose and Verse

Nathaniel Calise Farrell
Arguments from the defense of poetry become models for the imagery in their poems and for their own poetic voices.  ...  For a reading of Jefferson and/or Mussolini and the Adams Cantos as mirrors for princes, see Reed Way Dasenbrock, "Jefferson and/or Adams: A Shifting Mirror for Mussolini in the Middle Cantos," ELH 55.  ...  Philomela, however, secretly weaves the story of her abduction and rape into a tapestry, which Tereus cannot read and so brings to his wife as a gift.  ...
