Ontology of Imprecision and Fuzzy Ontology Applications

Robin Wikström

Abstract

Dealing with uncertainty and vagueness is an important challenge for the Semantic Web. Ontologies are regularly used for structuring knowledge for the Semantic Web, however, the traditionally used ontologies are not suitable for all contexts. Introducing fuzzy logic offers new possibilities. In this paper an overview regarding ontology of imprecision is presented and a web application, based on the Fuzzy Wine Ontology is constructed. The paper provides some indications on how fuzzy ontologies can offer better and more reliable solutions. The web application opens the door for future developments in the knowledge mobilization field.
