Research Interests
    Description Logic

    Knowledge Representation and Reasoning (KRR) is a prominent research field of Artificial Intelligence (AI). In essence, the goal of knowledge representation is to describe and store knowledge in a systematic and machine understandable way. Having knowledge stored properly in this way, automated reasoning can be employed in order to, for instance, detect inconsistencies and infer implicit knowledge. Several approaches to KRR have been proposed and considered in the AI literature, but some of the most important approaches are based on logic, in particular Description Logics. Description Logics form a successful family of knowledge representation formalisms with two key assets: formally well-defined semantics which allows representing knowledge in an unambiguous way and automated reasoning which allows inferring implicit knowledge from knowledge given explicitly.

    Semantic Web Ontologies

    The eXtensible Markup Language (XML) has been introduced to address the limitations of the Hyper-Text Markup Language (HTML), namely the lack of document structures. Despite a big success in several applications, XML still fails to fulfill the Semantic Web vision, which aims at describing the meaning (semantics) of Web data in a way suitable for automated reasoning. To solve this issue, the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and RDF Schema (RDFS) are used to construct a data model and define a domain-specific terminology, respectively. With a logical underpinning based on Description Logics, RDF and RDFS have been considerably extended to the Web Ontology Language (OWL), a W3C recommendation of ontology language for the Semantic Web. A collection of OWL ontologies will form an indispensible ingredient toward realization of the Semantic Web vision. Although several tools and reasoning techniques are readily available for modeling OWL ontologies, further challenges still remain.
