KWilt: A Semantic Patchwork for Flexible Access to Heterogeneous Knowledge
Semantic wikis and other modern knowledge management systems deviate from traditional knowledge bases in that information ranges from unstructured (wiki pages) over semi-formal (tags) to formal (RDF or OWL) and is produced by users with varying levels of expertise. KWQL is a query language for semantic wikis that scales with a user’s level of expertise by combining ideas from keyword query languages with aspects of formal query languages such as SPARQL. In this paper, we discuss KWQL’s implementation KWilt: It uses, for each data format and query type, technology tailored to that setting and combines, in a patchwork fashion, information retrieval, structure matching and constraint evaluation tools with only lightweight “glue”. We show that it is possible to efficiently recognize KWQL queries that can be evaluated using only information retrieval or information retrieval and structure matching. This allows KWilt to evaluate basic queries at almost the speed of the underlying sea...
