The paper presents an integrated approach for automated semantic web service composition using AI planning techniques. An important advantage of this approach is that the composition process, as well as the discovery of the atomic services that take part in the composition, are significantly facilitated by the incorporation of semantic information.

Production rules are useful for several tasks of active database systems, such as integrity constraint checking, derived data maintenance, database state monitoring, etc. Furthermore production rules can express knowledge in a high-level form for problem solving in Knowledge Base Systems (KBS). Present active object-oriented database (OODB) systems(More)
This work introduces an ontology for incorporating Ambient Intelligence in Smart Buildings. The ontology extends and benefits from existing ontologies in the field, but also adds classes needed to sufficiently model every aspect of a service-oriented smart building system. Namely, it includes concepts modeling all functionality (i.e. services, operations,(More)
This paper describes a technique for the smooth integration of production rules into an active Object-Oriented Database (OODB) system that provides Event-Condition-Action (ECA) rules only, called DEVICE. The emphasis is given on the compilation of rule conditions into a discrimination network for incremental matching at run-time. The network consists of(More)
In this paper we present R-DEVICE, a deductive object-oriented knowledge base system for reasoning over RDF metadata. R-DEVICE imports RDF documents into the CLIPS production rule system by transforming RDF triples into COOL objects and uses a deductive rule language for reasoning about them. R-DEVICE is based on an OO RDF data model, different than the(More)
This paper presents a novel idea, which combines Planning, Machine Learning and Knowledge-Based techniques. It is concerned with the development of an adaptive planning system that can fine-tune its planning parameters based on the values of specific measurable characteristics of the given planning problem. Adaptation is guided by a rule-based system ,(More)
This paper presents PORSCE II, an integrated system that performs automatic semantic web service composition exploiting AI techniques, mainly planning. Essential steps in achieving the web service composition include the translation of the web service composition problem into a solver-ready planning domain & problem, followed by the acquisition of(More)
We introduce the notion of the mixed DL and entailment-based (DLE) OWL reasoning, defining a framework inspired from the hybrid and homogeneous paradigms for integration of rules and ontologies. The idea is to combine the TBox inferencing capabilities of the DL algorithms and the scal-ability of the rule paradigm over large ABoxes. Towards this end, we(More)
Public organizations produce daily a great volume of administrative documents, in order to fulfill their mission. This requires the use of a certain, unique for each procedure, legal framework. This article adopts a process oriented approach, through a web-based knowledge management system that provides this legal framework in an up-to-date and accurate(More)
