INCONSISTENCY IDENTIFICATION IN DYNAMIC ONTOLOGIES BASED ON MODEL CHECKING

Abstract

The increasing use of ontologies and the cost of changes support the need to manage the evolution of ontologies. A common kind of error in ontology evolution is the logical contradiction declined as incoherences and inconsistences. In this paper, we propose a new approach to predict and identify the incoherences and inconsistences in the evolution of ontologies based on temporal logic and ontology design patterns. We implement the proposed approach using the NuSMV model checker. Based on these patterns, we propose an automated process to guide and monitor the implementation of change while ensuring the consistency of the evolved ontology.
