A Defeasible Ontology Language

A Defeasible Ontology Language
We extend the description logic ¢¤£¦¥¦§©¨ with a preference order on the axioms. With this strict partial order certain axioms can be overruled, if defeated with more preferred ones. Furthermore, we impose a preferred model semantics, thus effectively introducing nonmonotonicity into ¢£¦¥§¨ . Since a description logic can be viewed as an ontology language, or a proper translation of one, we obtain a defeasible ontology language. Finally, we argue that such a defeasible language may be usefully applied for learning and integrating ontologies.
