Automatic Support for Ontology Evaluation - Review of Entailed Statements and Assertional Effects for OWL Ontologies

Dissertation Viktoria Pammer 2010

The typical goal of representing knowledge formally is to make knowledge accessible to machines.

The Semantic Web has become reality over the past couple of years. While certain practical Topics-such as interoperability, etc.-have at least partially been addressed, scalability and expressivity issues regarding the utilisation of multimedia metadata on the Semantic Web are still widely neglected. However, existing Web (2.0) applications handling millions of…

Konzeption und Entwicklung eines generischen Wissenserschliessungsframeworks

Dissertation Michael Granitzer 2006

Steadily increasing information amounts require new ways and techniques for making knowledge efficiently and goal oriented utilisable. The lack of structure in information, the incomplete allocation of metadata, and the vagueness of human language make things even more difficult. For making information utilisable for different user groups, various techniques from…
