  title={A Fuzzy Description Logic for the Semantic Web},

In this paper we present a fuzzy version of SHOIN (D), the corresponding Description Logic of the ontology description language OWL DL. We show that the representation and reasoning capabilities of fuzzy SHOIN (D) go clearly beyond classical SHOIN (D). Interesting features are: (i) concept constructors are based on t-norm, t-conorm, negation and implication; (ii) concrete domains are fuzzy sets; (iii) fuzzy modifiers are allowed; and (iv) entailment and subsumption relationships may hold to… CONTINUE READING
