Metadata for web ontologies and rules: current practices and perspectives

1,118

Published on

The Semantic Web contains a number of di erent knowledge artifacts, including OWL ontologies, RIF rule sets and RDF datasets. E fective exchange and management of these artifacts demand the use of metadata and prompt availability of accurate reference documentation. In this paper, we analyze the current practices in metadata usage for OWL ontologies, and we propose a vocabulary for annotating RIF rules. We also introduce a software tool {Parrot{ that exploits these annotations and produces reference documentation for combinations of ontologies and rules.

Metadata for web ontologies and rules: current practices and perspectives

  1. 1. Metadata for webontologies and rules: current practices and perspectives Carlos Tejo-Alonso, Diego Berrueta, Luis Polo and Sergio Fernández

  3. 3. Motivation to annotate• Facilitate search• Improve exchange and reuse• Link them to the natural language• Generate reference documentation
  4. 4. Overview• Current ontology & rule metadata usage• Proposed vocabulary to annotate rules• Parrot, a documentation tool for ontologies and rules• Conclusions/Future Work
  5. 5. Metadata vocabularies• General purpose: DC, SKOS or RDFS – dc:creator, skos:prefLabel, rdfs:comment• For ontologies: OWL – owl:versionInfo• For rules: no specific vocabulary (with significant adoption)
  6. 6. Ontology metadata study
  7. 7. Ontology metadata study• Massive use of RDF Schema(label & comment)• Property synonymy dc:description rdfs:comment dct:description skos:definition• Absence of: – multimedia – legal rights and license information – expressive multilingual metadata
  8. 8. Rule metadata: a proposalMetadata Recommended propertiesLabeling dc:title, dct:title, rdfs:label, skos:prefLabel, skos:altLabelAuthoring foaf:maker, dc:creator, dc:contributor, dc:publisher, dct:creator, dct:contributor, dct:publisherDescription dc:description, dct:description, rdfs:comment, skos:definition, skos:example, skos:noteMultimedia foaf:depiction, og:videoVersioning owl:versionInfo, dct:hasVersion, skos:changeNoteRights dc:rights, dct:licenseDate dc:date, dct:issued, dct:modifiedDocumentation dct:source, rdfs:seeAlso, rdfs:isDefinedBy

  13. 13. Conclusions• Ontology metadata exists in the wild, but there is still room for improvement• Metadata facilitate rule exchange between Business Rules Management System• We expect to impact on the quality and quantity of the metadata annotations in rules and ontologies
  14. 14. Future work• To expand the analysis to large ontologies• To account the use of metadata in RIF documents as they become available• To extend proposal of rule metadata properties as new requirements arise
