MANAGING THE KNOWLEDGE NEEDED TO SUPPORT AN ELECTRONIC PERSONAL ASSISTANT - An End-User Friendly Graphical Ontology Editing Tool

Matthias Einig, Roger Tagg, Georg Peters

Abstract

Today’s administrative worker has to handle huge amounts of data of different types, from many different sources and using multiple software tools. The effort in organizing and retrieving this data is often disproportionate to the actual benefit gained. Ontology-based categorization of knowledge has been advocated to provide a common infrastructure to the tools. However, most current software for building and maintaining ontologies is too complicated for the average end-user. This paper describes a prototype ontology editor application that aims to provide a more easily understandable and usable interface.
