An Ontology Change Management System: An experimental on a health care case study
2010 (English)In: International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development, Valencia, Spain: SciTePress , 2010Conference paper (Other academic)
Numerous ontologies have been developed for life science domains. These
ontologies are continuously changing. Thus, it is becoming important to study and to manage
these changes in order to keep all dependent ontologies and their related mappings consistent.
The aim of this paper is to propose an agent based approach enabling not only ontology and
ontology mapping evolution analysis but also to manage their changes. An experiment in health
care illustrates the benefits of our approach. We apply our algorithm and implementation
OEManager to eye specialist ontology (ESO) and primary health care ontology
(PCO), and particularly, we use the prototype and our ontology agent model to manage some
significant changes in the ESO ontology.
