TOWARDS A GENERAL TEMPORAL ONTOLOGY FOR KNOWLEDGE INTEGRATION

Yi Qiang, Femke Reitsma, Nico Van de Weghe

Abstract

Practically, temporal information is related to every aspect of our world. A temporal ontology may effectively negotiate the meanings between different time concepts. Though some temporal ontologies have been developed, their uses are still narrow and cannot apply into a broader range of knowledge domains. Our work aims to develop a general ontology of time which can negotiate the heterogeneities in different time conceptualizations. It is not only a framework for annotating everyday temporal terms on the Web but also lays a foundation for knowledge infrastructures with more domain-specific time concepts.
