AIC Seminar Series

Representing and Reasoning with Modular Ontologies

Jie BaoRensselaer Polytechnic Institute[Home Page]

Notice:  Hosted by Vinay Chaudhri

Date:  Thursday, May 12th 2011 at 4:00pm

Location:  EJ228 (SRI E building)  (Directions)


Semantic Web applications call for the knowledge base counterparts of hyperlinked documents so that independently created ontology modules can be flexibly linked and reused to meet the needs of specific applications, users, or contexts. We argue that ontology languages and tools should support selective knowledge sharing, accommodate reconciliation of multiple points of view about the world, and provide distributed reasoning services based on well-defined semantics and a sound proof theory. Against this background, this talk will give a brief overview of the techniques provided by Package-based Description Logics on modeling modular and contextualized knowledge bases.
