Real-World Reasoning with OWL
Abstract. This work is motivated by experiences in the course of developing an ontology-based application within a real-world setting. We found out that current benchmarks are not well suited to provide helpful hints for users who seek for an appropriate reasoning system able to deal with expressive terminological descriptions, large volumes of assertional data, and frequent updates in a sound and complete way. This paper tries to provide some insights into currently available reasoning approaches and aims at identifying requirements to make future benchmarks more useful for application developers. 1 On Benchmarking OWL Reasoners Having sufficiently exhaustive knowledge about the influence of the underlying reasoning approach on the practical tractability of a particular ontology is of fundamental importance when selecting an inference engine for a real-world application. By real-world we mean an ontology-based application with an expressivity at least beyond ALC, containing more than...
