Abstract:
One of the important issues in ontology management is handling incoming updates and dealing with possible inconsistencies that they may induce. This is even more challenging in the context of a modular and distributed representation, because of the side-effects of the propagation of changes to the other connected or related ontologies. In this paper, we analyze the notion of ontology revision in a distributed ontology representation. We introduce a revision operator for distributed ontologies and show that it satisfies important postulates for knowledge base revision. In addition, based on a tableau algorithm for ALC ontologies, we propose an algorithm for applying the received changes and revising the original ontology through the proposed operator.
