Transcript of "Aggregation Identity & owl:sameAs"

  1. 1. Aggregation Identity and owl:sameAs OAI ORE Technical Committee Meeting, Washington, D.C.
  2. 2. Aggregation Identity & owl:sameAs <ul><li>owl:sameAs </li></ul><ul><li>What do we want to say? </li></ul>Title slide photo of Washington Monument by Flickr user AlbinoFlea See http://www.flickr.com/photos/albinoflea/290380716/ Made available under CC Attribution- NonCommercial 2.0 Generic license
  3. 3. owl:sameAs <ul><li>Property defined by Web Ontology Language (OWL) </li></ul><ul><li>States that two URI references refer to the same thing </li></ul><ul><li>Reflects the “no unique name“ assumption of the Semantic Web </li></ul><ul><ul><li>i.e. no assumption that all data creators refer to thing using one name/URI </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>multiple data creators may define names/URIs for the same thing (URI Aliases) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Widely used in “Linked Data” </li></ul>
  4. 4. Identification v Interaction <ul><li>N.B. Dealing here with identification, not interaction </li></ul><ul><li>If I claim Resource:A owl:sameAs Resource:B, then </li></ul><ul><ul><li>My assertion says nothing about (set of) representation(s) for Resource:A and Resource:B available at any time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Set of representations available for Resource:A may be quite different from set of representations for Resource:B </li></ul></ul><ul><li>And conversely… </li></ul><ul><li>If Resource:A and Resource:B have same set of representations, then </li></ul><ul><ul><li>That alone is not sufficient to support the conclusion that Resource:A owl:sameAs Resource:B </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. owl:sameAs and Inferences <ul><li>If </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Resource:A owl:sameAs Resource:B </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Then </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Resource:A Prop:P Resource:X => Resource:B Prop:P Resource:X </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resource:X Prop:P Resource:A => Resource:X Prop:P Resource:B </li></ul></ul><ul><li>e.g. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Resource:A dc:creator Person:P => Resource:B dc:creator Person:P </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Resource:A dcterms:created “2008-01-14” => Resource:B dcterms:created “2008-01-14” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>ReM:R ore:describes Resource:A => ReM:R ore:describes Resource:B </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. What do we want to “say”? <ul><li>If the requirement is to say “Aggregation:A and Resource:R are the same resource” (i.e. URIs are aliases, “Aggregation:A aka Resource:R”) </li></ul><ul><li>Then </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Use owl:sameAs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>But providers must bear in mind what that means, i.e. the inferences which follow, and make assertion only where appropriate </li></ul></ul><ul><li>If the requirement is to say “Aggregation:A and Resource:R are different resources, related in some way” (i.e. URIs are not aliases) </li></ul><ul><li>Then </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Need to clarify what that “related in some way” relationship is </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Need to define new ORE property (or select existing property from other vocabulary) </li></ul></ul>
