    (Software demo at ICBO 2009)
    Mathieu d’Aquin
    Aldo Gangemi, Enrico Motta, Martin Dzbor, Peter Haase, Michael Erdmann
    The NeOn Consortium
  • 2. Outline of the Demo
    The NeOn toolkit, an environment for building ontologies
    Reusing ontologies = finding ontologies
    Watson: an ontology search engine
    Cupboard: ontology publication and reuse made easy
    The Cupboard plugin for the NeOn Toolkit
    Reusing ontologies = understanding ontologies
    Key concepts summary based ontology visualization and exploration
    Reusing modules/patterns of ontologies
    Extracting ontology modules
    Reusing ontology design patterns with the XD plugin
    Reusing ontologies = risk of inconsistency/incoherence
    RaDON for diagnosis and repair of ontologies
    Slide 2
  • 3. Slide 3
    Core ontology editor with
    Support ontology engineering and management
    Support for complete ontology lifecycle
    Support for different languages (OWL, F-Logic)
    Support for networked ontologies (modules, mappings)
    Built on the Eclipse platform
    Extensible architecture
    Via Eclipse pluginmechanism
    Community support
    Slide 3
    The NeOn Toolkit ontology development environment
  • 4. Finding ontologies: Watson and Cupboard
    Watson: Semantic Web Search Engine
    Cupboard: Ontology publication portal
    Slide 4
  • 5. Slide 5
  • 6. Metadata
  • 7. Slide 7
  • 8. VISU!!!!
    Slide 8
    • Novel ontology visulaization technique
    • 9. Based on a summary of the ontology
    • 10. Allow for a midle out approach to ontology exploration
  • Reuse Through Ontology Modularization
    Slide 9
    Inspired from software engineering, Ontology modularization refers to the design of ontologies as sets of components that can be developed and managed independently.
  • 11. Modularization Support in the NeOn Toolkit
    Slide 10
    Ontology Partitioning
    Module Composition
    Module Specification
    Module Extraction
  • 12. Pattern-Based Design
    Pattern-based ontology design is the activity of searching, selecting, and composing different patterns
    Based on a catalogue of design patterns:
    Slide 11
    From Aldo Gangemi
  • 13. Support for Extreme Ontology Design
    Slide 12
    From ValentinaPresutti
  • 14. Slide 13
    Repair and Diagnosis in Ontology Networks
    • Inconsistencies may occur naturally in networked and dynamic ontologies built by reuse
    • 15. When integrated ontologies are inconsistent, how do we debug the cause of the inconsistency and repair it?
    From Peter Haase
  • 16. Slide 14
    NeOn offers a variety of tools for ontology reuse
    But this is only one aspect of the the NeOn project. Many elements (and corresponding tools) not covered:
    Methodology for building ontologies and ontology based application
    Ontology matching and alignment
    Collaboration and editorial workflow for ontologies development
    Ontology localization
    Reuse of non-ontological resources
    Concrete applications in 2 domains
    And it is extensible!
    Anybody can develop a plugin and extend existing plugins
