This paper gives an overview of the development of the field of Knowledge Engineering over the last 15 years. We discuss the paradigm shift from a transfer view to a modeling view and describe two approaches which considerably shaped research in Knowledge Engineering: Role-limiting Methods and Generic Tasks. To illustrate various concepts and methods which(More)
Problem-solving methods provide reusable architectures and components for implementing the reasoning part of knowledge-based systems. The Unified Problem-Solving Method Description Language (UPML) has been developed to describe and implement such architectures and components to facilitate their semi-automatic reuse and adaptation. In a nutshell, UPML is a(More)
The Semantic Web has attracted a diverse, but significant, community of researchers, institutes and companies, all sharing the belief that one day the Semantic Web will have as big an impact on life as currently the WWW/Internet has. We share that vision, based on the ever-increasing need to reduce information overload, and to increase task delegation to(More)

Ontologies are becoming increasingly more important in many different areas, including the knowledge management area. In knowledge management, ontologies can be used as an instrument to make knowledge assets intelligently accessible to people in organizations through an intranet or the Internet. Most enterprises agree that knowledge is an essential asset(More)
Tor the past few years, the Semantic Web has been enjoying significant investment, mostly through research but to a lesser extent through start-ups and commercial projects. A major topic of discussion is where we can see those investments' results, so I asked several experts to consider what semantic technology will accomplish in the near future. The(More)
