A COMPOUND STRATEGY FOR ONTOLOGIES COMBINING

Dominique Renaud, Cecilia Zanni-Merk, François Rousselot

Abstract

This article reports our works on a strategy for results aggregation coming from a multi agent system. Each set of results is related to a specific ontology. The application is the organisation analysis of Small and Medium Enterprises. In this context, different knowledge bases are used. Depending on their origin, the different KB may be close, complementary and sometimes contradictory. The proposed approach uses a strategy based on two key ideas. The first one is general and aims at selecting a combining method of ontologies and the second one is focused on the selection and combining of sub-parts of ontologies. The combination of these two strategies should improve the understanding of the results produced by the multi agent system.
