Waste Management Information System - An Expert System Using Ontologies

Erdogan Dogdu, Bahadir Katipoglu, Umutcan Guney

Abstract

Legal documents that include rules and regulations are hard to interpret most of the time. We present the requirements and the design of an ontology-based expert system framework that we are developing for easy translation of legal concepts, rules and constraints to an ontology. Ontology engineers and domain experts on specific legal documents work collaboratively on this system to generate generic and customized ontologies via an ontology generation workbench called WOBE (Ontology-based Expert System Workbench) and the expert system built using the workbench allows end users to follow the rules and regulations without consulting the complex legal documents. We compare WOBE framework with related tools at the end.
