KANNEL: a Framework for Detecting and Managing Relations between Ontologies in Large Ontology Repository.
This event took place on Wednesday 27 May 2009 at 11:30
Ontologies are the pillars of the Semantic Web (SW) and, as more and more ontologies are made available online, the SW is quickly taking shape. As a result, the research community is becoming more and more aware that ontologies are not isolated artifacts: they are, explicitly or implicitly, related with each other. Indeed, a number of studies have intended to tackle some of the challenges raised by ontology relationships, from both theoretical and practical points of view. We propose and describe KANNEL, a framework for detecting and managing semantic relations between ontologies for large ontology repositories. It is based on the DOOR ontology. Basically, it is a semantic structure (ontology with rules), which represents and formalizes important ontology relations on the Semantic Web. Making explicit implicit relations between ontologies provides meta-information that facilitates the development of Semantic Web Applications. In addiction, applied in the context of a large collection of automatically crawled ontologies, DOOR and KANNEL provide a starting point for analyzing the underlying structure of the network of ontologies that is the Semantic Web.

We are also inviting top experts in AI and Knowledge Technologies to discuss major socio-technological topics with an audience that comprises both members of the Knowledge Media Institute, as well as the wider staff at The Open University. Differently from our seminar series, these events follow a Q&A format.
