Reconciling Concepts and Relations in Heterogeneous Ontologies [chapter]

Chiara Ghidini, Luciano Serafini
2006 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we propose an extension of Distributed Description Logics (DDL) to allow for the representation of mapping between concepts and relations.  ...  In the extensive usage of ontologies envisaged by the Semantic Web there is a compelling need for expressing mappings between the components of heterogeneous ontologies.  ...  For instance, assume a relation IsMarried exists in ontology 1, and a concept Marriage exists in ontology 2.  ...

An Approach to Composing Web Services with Context Heterogeneity

Xitong Li, Stuart Madnick, Hongwei Zhu, Yushun Fan
2009 2009 IEEE International Conference on Web Services  
The contexts of the involved Web services are defined in a lightweight ontology and their WSDL descriptions are annotated by an extension of a W3C standard, i.e., Semantic Annotation for WSDL and XML Schema  ...  Given a BPEL file that ignores context heterogeneity, the approach automatically detects all context differences among the involved services, and reconciles them by producing a mediated BPEL file that  ...  relations of data and messages to the concepts in the ontology.  ...

The construction process of this ontology will be used to illustrate the method. Tiihonen, J. Reconciling practice and rigour in ontology-based heterogeneous information systems construction.  ...  Still, in practice, ontology integration is difficult in heterogeneous information systems (HIS) that need to integrate assets already built and running which cannot be changed.  ...  Acknowledgments This work is a result of the OpenReq project, which has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 732463.  ...

Improving data quality through effective use of data semantics

Stuart Madnick, Hongwei Zhu
2006 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
We discuss the especially challenging problem of aggregational ontological heterogeneity, which concerns how complex entities and their relationships are aggregated.  ...  Then we illustrate how COntext INterchange (COIN) technology can be used to capture data semantics and reconcile semantic heterogeneities, thereby improving data quality.  ...  The elevation axioms map each column of a relation to a concept in the ontology and associate each column with a context.  ...

Addressing the Challenges of Aggregational and Temporal Ontological Heterogeneity

Stuart E. Madnick, Hongwei (Harry) Zhu
2005 Social Science Research Network  
Then we illustrate how the COntext INterchange (COIN) technology can be used to capture data semantics and reconcile semantic heterogeneities in a scalable manner, thereby improving data quality.  ...  We discuss the especially challenging problems of temporal and aggregational ontological heterogeneity, which concerns how complex entities and their relationships are aggregated and reinterpreted over  ...  The elevation axioms map each column of a relation to a concept in the ontology and associate each column with a context.  ...

Reconciling Semantic Heterogeneity in Web Services Composition

Xitong Li, Stuart E. Madnick, Hongwei (Harry) Zhu, Yushun Fan
2009 Social Science Research Network  
In this paper, we address the various semantic differences from the context perspective and use a lightweight ontology to describe the concepts and their specializations.  ...  Given the naive BPEL composition ignoring semantic differences, our reconciliation approach can automatically determine and reconcile the semantic differences.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors thank the anonymous reviewers and editor for their insightful suggestions in improving this paper.  ...

Ontology-based Collaborative Inter-organizational Knowledge Management Network

Nelson K. Y. Leung, Seung Hwan Kang, Sim Kim Lau, Joshua Fan
2009 Interdisciplinary Journal of Information, Knowledge, and Management  
In this paper, we propose the use of ontology for organizations to access and retrieve inter-organizational knowledge in a similar domain.  ...  The incorporation of ontology and its mediation methods in the network allows organizations to reuse the interorganizational knowledge to support individual organizational knowledge management processes  ...  To reuse other ontologies of different types, ontology mediation is required to reconcile the mismatches among heterogeneous ontologies in order for knowledge sharing and reuse (Predoiu et al., 2006)  ...

Semantic Integration Approach to Efficient Business Data Supply Chain: Integration Approach to Inter-Operable XBRL

Hongwei (Harry) Zhu, Stuart E. Madnick
2007 Social Science Research Network  
An approach of translating XBRL into description logic is reported in (Declerck and Krieger 2006) .  ...  Using an investment funds XBRL taxonomy as an example, a method of converting an XBRL taxonomy into an OWL ontology is presented in (Lara et al. 2006 ).  ...  As a result, ontological heterogeneity is difficult to identify and reconcile. We will ignore ontological heterogeneity in the ensuing discussion.  ...

Reasoning about Temporal Context using Ontology and Abductive Constraint Logic Programming

Hongwei (Harry) Zhu, Stuart E. Madnick, Michael Siegel
2004 Social Science Research Network  
A mediation engine that implements the framework automatically detects and reconciles semantic differences at different times.  ...  We represent temporal context as a multi-valued method in F-Logic; however, only one value is valid at any point in time, the determination of which is constrained by temporal relations.  ...  Acknowledgements The work reported herein was supported, in part, by the Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA) and the Malaysia University of Science and Technology (MUST)-MIT collaboration.  ...

A Lightweight Ontology Approach to Scalable Interoperability

Hongwei (Harry) Zhu, Stuart E. Madnick
2006 Social Science Research Network  
In this approach, the ontology includes only high level concepts; subtle differences in the interpretation of the concepts are captured as context descriptions outside the ontology.  ...  This paper presents an approach that combines the strengths and avoids the weaknesses of lightweight and formal ontologies.  ...  In addition to using ontology and contexts to represent semantic heterogeneity, COIN also has a reasoning component to determine and reconcile semantic differences.  ...
