ONTOLOGY MODELING TOOL USING CONCEPT DICTIONARY AND INFERENCE

Yoichi Hiramatsu

Abstract

The usefulness of ontology is strongly dependent on a knowledge representation policy and its maintenance. The subject of knowledge representation and modeling tools has been one of the most exciting themes among ontology scientists. Some ontology editing tools originated and developed in the field of expert systems, and others were designed originally by ontology research groups. Key features of the newly implemented tool are: (a) reference to a concept dictionary (EDR, WordNet) to ascertain word semantics, and (b) use of an inference algorithm (MOP) provided by Schank et al. Satisfactory results were obtained in the application of ontology modeled by the present tool. We will discuss how our tool was constructed and describe applications using the tool to achieve solutions for enterprise integration. This work was developed as a part of the project entitled “Operation-support system for large-scale system using information technology” (Koide et al., 2003) for the Japanese Government IT Program, period 2002-2005.
