Imprecise RDQL: towards generic retrieval in ontologies using similarity joins
Traditional semantic web query languages support a logicbased access to the semantic web. They offer a retrieval (or reasoning) of data based on facts. On the traditional web and in databases, however, exact querying often provides an incomplete answer as queries are overspecified or the mix of multiple ontologies/modelling differences requires “interpretational flexibility.” Therefore, similarity measures or ranking approaches are frequently used to extend the reach of a query. This paper extends this idea to the semantic web. It introduces iRDQL—a semantic web query language with support for similarity joins. It is an extension of traditional RDQL (RDF Data Query Language) that enables the users to query for similar resources ranking the results using a similarity measure. We show how iRDQL allows to extend the reach of a query by finding additional results. We quantitatively evaluated four similarity measures for their usefulness in iRDQL in the context of an OWL-S seman...
