Ontology as a Service (OaaS): extracting and replacing sub-ontologies on the cloud
Tailoring large ontologies can be a very cumbersome task. The Grid enables resource sharing to handle such tasks over a distributed environment. It makes sense then, to investigate the possibility of using resources on the Grid to tailor large Ontologies. This paper proposes a distributed ontology framework for tailoring ontologies in the Grid. The framework consists of five main categories; Ontology Processing, Ontology Location, Ontology Connection, Users’ Connection and Algorithm Location.
