Abstract:

The YaleBBN effort was focused on developing techniques for implementing and managing ontology translations. The simplest case is translation of datasets or queries expressed using one ontology into datasets or queries expressed in another. They devised and implemented the merging-deduction- projection model Bridging axioms are stored in merged ontologies a set of facts to translate are used to start forward chaining using the bridging axioms conclusions in the target ontology are retained.
