From SHIQ and RDF to OWL: the making of a Web Ontology Language
TLDR
This paper discusses how the philosophy and features of OWL can be traced back to these older formalisms, with modifications driven by several other constraints on OWL. Expand
Sesame: A Generic Architecture for Storing and Querying RDF and RDF Schema
TLDR
This work presents an overview of Sesame, an architecture for efficient storage and expressive querying of large quantities of metadata in RDF and RDF Schema, and its implementation and the first experiences with this implementation. Expand
Web Ontology Language: OWL
TLDR
This chapter analyses the limitations of RDF Schema and derive requirements for a richer Web Ontology Language, and describes the three-layered architecture of the OWL language. Expand
A semantic web primer
TLDR
The third edition of this widely used text has been thoroughly updated, with significant new material that reflects a rapidly developing field. Expand
The Semantic Web: The Roles of XML and RDF
TLDR
It is argued that a further representation and inference layer is needed on top of the Web's current layers, and to establish such a layer, a general method for encoding ontology representation languages into RDF/RDF schema is proposed. Expand
C-OWL: Contextualizing Ontologies
TLDR
This paper shows how ontologies can be contextualized, thus acquiring certain useful properties that a pure shared approach cannot provide, and develops Context OWL (C-OWL), a language whose syntax and semantics have been obtained by extending the OWLntax and semantics to allow for the representation of contextual ontologies. Expand
OIL in a Nutshell
TLDR
This work will present OIL, which is a proposal for a joint standard for specifying and exchanging ontologies, based on existing proposals such as OKBC, XOL and RDF schema, enriching them with necessary features for expressing ontologies. Expand
OIL: An Ontology Infrastructure for the Semantic Web
TLDR
The authors present OIL, a proposal for a joint standard for specifying and exchanging ontologies, which is needed for knowledge sharing and reuse on the Semantic Web. Expand
Scalable Distributed Reasoning Using MapReduce
TLDR
The proposed technique for materialising the closure of an RDF graph based on MapReduce is scalable and allows the RDFS closure of 865M triples from the Web in less than two hours, faster than any other published approach. Expand
