The Fuzzy Description Logic f-SHIN
Abstract. In the Semantic Web information would be retrieved, processed, combined, shared and reused in the maximum automatic way possible. Obviously, such procedures involve a high degree of uncertainty and imprecision. For example ontology alignment or information retrieval are rarely true or false procedures but usually involve confidence degrees or provide rankings. Furthermore, it is often the case that information itself is imprecise and vague like the concept of a “tall” person, a “hot” place and many more. In order to be able to represent and reason with such type of information in the Semantic Web (SW), as well as, enhance SW applications we present an extension of the Description Logic SHIN with fuzzy set theory. We present the semantics as well as detailed reasoning algorithms for the extended language.
