The semantic web has become a big topic in academic research over the last years. But what about industry? In this tutorial two of the worldwide leading companies in semantic technologies, Saltlux and Ontoprise, demonstrate tools and applications that are currently used in industry, show real world use cases and offer the opportunity to have a hands-on session with professional ontology tools.
To successfully employ semantic web technologies in business scenarios, effective languages, tools and applications are needed for modelling and deploying ontologies. Currently there are two popular types of ontology languages: description logics based languages like the Ontology Web Language (OWL) and Horn logic (rules) based languages like Frame-Logic (F-Logic).
In this tutorial, participants can learn about the basic concepts of ontology engineering, reasoning and semantic based applications. For this purpose leading professional modelling tools and reasoning engines will be used. Further the application of ontologies in a framework for knowledge management and information retrieval will be demonstrated.
The tutorial will cover both F-Logic, which has proven to be an excellent choice for semantic applications in many industry projects, as well as OWL, a relatively new W3C standard, that gains a lot of attention.
F-Logic is introduced by using OntoStudio®, the leading modelling tool for F-Logic, and by using OntoBroker®, the leading reasoning engine for F-Logic. Information integration via database and ontology mapping will also be presented.
