Exploration of SWRL Rule Bases through Visualization, Paraphrasing, and Categorization of Rules
Rule bases are increasingly being used as repositories of knowledge content on the Semantic Web. As the size and complexity of these rule bases s, developers and end users need methods of rule abstraction to te rule management. In this paper, we describe a rule abstraction method for Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL) rules that is based on lexical analysis and a set of heuristics. Our method results in a tree data structure that we exploit in creating techniques to visualize, paraphrase, and categorize SWRL rules. We evaluate our approach by applying it to several biomedical ontologies that contain SWRL rules, and show how the results reveal rule patterns within the rule base. We have implemented our method as a plug-in tool for Protégé-OWL, the most widely used ontology modeling software for the Semantic Web. Our tool can allow users to rapidly explore content and patterns in SWRL rule bases, enabling their acquisition and management.
