Community-driven ontology evolution based on lightweight social networking in oil and gas domain
MetadataShow full item record
Ontology evolution is one of the problems facing ontology users today. One of the problems is that making changes to one concept of ontology might affect other concepts, thereby leading to inconsistencies. Moreover, this creates a lot of work for ontology engineers who have to update the ontology manually. The process of changing the ontology requires work from the domain experts. No cost effective communication method exists that enables discussion and agreement on these changes. In this paper, we propose to use a lightweight Social Networking approach in order to enhance the communication between different participants. This will produce a more efficient and effective method of communication and decision-making.
