Using the Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence to resolve ABox inconsistencies
This event took place on Wednesday 07 November 2007 at 11:30

Automated ontology population using information extraction algorithms can produce inconsistent knowledge bases. Confidence values assigned by the extraction algorithms may serve as evidence helping to repair produced inconsistencies. Dempster-Shafer theory of evidence is a formalism, which allows appropriate interpretation of extractorsí
confidence values. The talk presents an algorithm for translating the subontologies containing conflicts into belief propagation networks and repairing conflicts based on Dempster-Shafer plausibility.
