Web-based graphical querying of databases through an ontology

Diego Calvanese, C. Maria Keet, Werner Nutt, Mariano Rodríguez-Muro, Giorgio Stefanoni
2010 Proceedings of the 2010 ACM Symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '10  
We have evaluated our system for Web-ONtology baseD Extraction of Relational data (WONDER) with an existing large genomics database about horizontal gene transfer and found that it meets both the scalability  ...  With an OWL ontology and the DIG-QUONTO reasoner as building blocks, we have developed an application that allows for graphical ontology browsing, query formulation, and answer retrieval via a Web browser  ...  The novel addition to the OBDA infrastructure, i.e., the web-based graphical query feature for ontologies and its implementation in the WONDER system, is described in Section 4.  ...

An Integrated Method Using Conceptual Modelling to Generate an Ontology-based Query Mechanism

Ronéll Alberts, Enrico Franconi
2012 W3C Web Ontology Language (OWL) Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED)  
This can be achieved by using traditional conceptual modelling techniques to develop a conceptual model of the domain of interest and utilising this to generate an ontology-based query mechanism.  ...  The application of ontologies in information systems is becoming increasingly prevalent.  ...  Through the refinements on the ontology and the use of reasoning services, this query can be answered through the ontology-based query mechanism.  ...

Using Ontologies for Semantic Data Integration [chapter]

Giuseppe De Giacomo, Domenico Lembo, Maurizio Lenzerini, Antonella Poggi, Riccardo Rosati
2017 Studies in Big Data  
Over the past two decades, the idea of using semantics for data integration has become increasingly crucial, and has received much attention in the AI, database, web, and data mining communities.  ...  Here, we focus on a specific paradigm for semantic data integration, called Ontology-Based Data Access (OBDA).  ...  OBDA is the problem of accessing data through an ontology.  ...

Improvements to cardiovascular Gene Ontology

Ruth C. Lovering, Emily C. Dimmer, Philippa J. Talmud
2009 Atherosclerosis  
In this article we review the current uses of Gene Ontology annotation to highlight why Gene Ontology should be of interest to all those involved in cardiovascular research.  ...  Gene Ontology (GO) provides a controlled vocabulary to describe the attributes of genes and gene products in any organism.  ...  Details about some of the other available ontologies, such as cell type or human disease ontologies, are available at the Open Biomedical Ontologies web site (www.obofoundry.org).  ...

2004 Bioinformatics  
Results: GoGet and GoView are two new tools built as part of an extensible web application system based on Java 2 Enterprise Edition technology.  ...  The results of such queries can be viewed in a collapsed tabular format that eases the burden of getting through large tables of data.  ...  Figure 9 outlines the three-tier architecture of our system. We have placed the GO data in an Oracle 8i database.  ...

Techniques of Ontology and its Usage in Indian Languages - A Review

Rajveer Kaur, Saurabh Sharma
2015 International Journal of Computer Applications  
Ontology is presently an emerging research topic in the field of artificial intelligence, semantic web, and natural language processing, software engineering, and information architecture etc.  ...  It is hereby concluded from the review that in Indian languages usage of ontology is very less because of the challenges to build ontology for minority languages.  ...  The proposed system includes an ontology leaning approach to build semiautomatic Graphical Ontology Structure known as Ontology Graph.  ...

Several Required OWL Features for Indigenous Knowledge Management Systems

Ronéll Alberts, Thomas Fogwill, C. Maria Keet
2012 W3C Web Ontology Language (OWL) Experiences and Directions Workshop (OWLED)  
Several needs for Indigenous Knowledge management systems (IKMSs) are articulated, based on extensive stakeholder input, and analysed on the suitability of semantic web technologies in addressing them.  ...  Based on their potential for impact and maturity, several possible applications are recommended for further investigation and inclusion into current or new IKMSs, including: ontology based querying and  ...  Acknowledgements This work was made possible with the support of the South African Department of Science & Technology's National IK Systems Office (RA, TF) and the EU's FP 7 Net2 project, which funded  ...

Semantic Layering with Magpie [chapter]

John Domingue, Martin Dzbor, Enrico Motta
2004 Handbook on Ontologies  
Magpie works by automatically associating an ontology based semantic layer to web resources, allowing relevant services to be directly invoked within a standard web browser.  ...  A significant amount of research has gone into supporting the task of finding web resources through 'standard' information retrieval mechanisms, or semantics-enhanced search.  ...  RELATED WORK One of the inspirations for Magpie was the COHSE system [3] . COHSE combines an Open Hypermedia System with an ontology server, to provide a framework for ontological linking.  ...

Open hypermedia as a navigational interface to ontological information spaces

Mark J. Weal, Gareth V. Hughes, David E. Millard, Luc Moreau
2001 Proceedings of the twelfth ACM conference on Hypertext and Hypermedia - HYPERTEXT '01  
Different query architectures have used structured query languages as an interface but these still require the users to have an expert understanding of the underlying ontologies.  ...  Our key contribution is a notion of hypermedia links between concepts and queries within an ontological information space.  ...  Although many people contributed to aspects of the SoFAR framework we would particularly like to mention John Revill, Richard Beales, Stephen Harris and Patrick Sinclair.  ...

Rules and Ontologies for the Semantic Web [chapter]

Thomas Eiter, Giovambattista Ianni, Thomas Krennwallner, Axel Polleres
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
While the Ontology Layer of the Semantic Web is quite developed, and the Web Ontology Language (OWL) is a W3C recommendation since a couple of years already, the rules layer is far less developed and an  ...  We direct our attention here to rule-based approaches for the Semantic Web, in view of rule systems operating upon RDF data, and ontology languages for the Web, in particular RDF Schema, OWL, and its dialects  ...  Introduction The issue of having rules on top or aside ontologies written in OWL is an important milestone on the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) agenda for completing the Semantic Web architecture.  ...
