Evolva: A Comprehensive Approach to Ontology Evolution
Ontology evolution is increasingly gaining momentum in the area of Semantic Web research. Current approaches target the evolution in terms of either content, or change management, without covering both aspects in the same framework. Moreover, they are slowed down as they heavily rely on user input. We tackle the aforementioned issues by proposing Evolva, a comprehensive ontology evolution framework, which handles a complete ontology evolution cycle, and makes use of background knowledge for decreasing user input. 1 Problem and Methodology Ontologies form the basis of Semantic Web systems. As such, they need to be kept up-to-date for the dependent systems to remain usable. With the increase of complexity and changes occurring in the represented domains, ontology evolution becomes a painstaking and time-consuming process. Thus research has witnessed an increased interest in ontology evolution. We regard ontology evolution as the “timely adaptation of an ontology to the arisen changes a...
