ly the OntoBayes model is designed with two parts: a knowledge part and a decision model part. The former is an integration of certain and uncertain knowledge based on ontologies and BNs respectively, while the latter can describe different decision models based on IDs. In order to facilitate the use of OntoBayes in DSSs, particularly to facilitate the share and reuse of knowledge and decision models for decision makers, a formal language for representing the knowledge part and the decision… 
ByNowLife: A Novel Framework for OWL and Bayesian Network Integration
ByNowLife is a novel approach for integrating BN with OWL by providing an interface for retrieving probabilistic information through SPARQL queries, which facilitates the unity of reasoning and has several other advantages, such as ontology enrichment and BN structural adjustment through structural and parameter learning.
From Agent Oriented Abstraction to Decision Making Under Uncertain Knowledge
We illustrate how a model of abstraction for the concept of agents, based upon a well-defined paradigm of what abstraction means in the context of artificial intelligence (AI), leads to a very
A Security Decision-Reaction Architecture for Heterogeneous Distributed Network
A global decision-reaction architectural built on the requirements for a reaction after alert detection mechanisms in the frame of information systems security and more particularly applied to telecom infrastructures security is provided.
A multi-agent based decision mechanism for incident reaction in telecommunication network
A global architectural and decision support solution for a reaction after alert detection mechanisms in the frame of information systems security applied to telecom infrastructures and a layered view of the infrastructure thanks to MAS architecture, which enables the decision making with different levels of knowledge.
Bayesian Network for Uncertainty Representation in Semantic Web: A Survey
An overall view, the work carried out so far to represent uncertainty with the help of Bayesian Network in semantic web and a list of works done using MEBN/PR-OWL for knowledge fusion or the representation of uncertainty in Semantic web are given.
Risk Prediction for Production of an Enterprise
A probabilistic risk assessment model is presented, which is used to predict risks inherent in the production of an enterprise, which depends upon various measures like labour availability, power backup, transport availability etc.
Abstraction Based Information Technology
Although the Open Mechanized approach looks mainly meaningful for computational processes, its three levels structure is suitable to abstract the concept of multi-agent systems (MAS) when one adopts the Agent Oriented Abstraction (AOA) paradigm.
An Interdisciplinary Perspective to the Design and Decision Support of Integral Safety Systems
It is envisioned that rigorous design techniques based on models for human-machine interaction are essential for achieving adequate performance and robustness of integral safety systems.
Agent-Based Knowledge Communities
HAL is a multi-disciplinary open access archive for the deposit and dissemination of scientific research documents, whether they are published or not, for teaching and research institutions in France or abroad, or from public or private research centers.


Is It Worth a Hoot? Qualms about OWL for Uncertainty Reasoning
This paper offers an informal characterization of OWL_QM, an extension ofOWL that supports the representation of PRMs, and is intended to motivate discussion as to whether OWL is an appropriate foundation for addressing the challenge of handling uncertainty on the Semantic Web.

  • 2004
This work proposes to incorporate Bayesian networks (BN), a widely used graphic model for knowledge representation under uncertainty and OWL, the de facto industry standard ontology language recommended by W3C to support uncertain ontology representation and ontology reasoning and mapping.
OntoBayes Approach to Corporate Knowledge
In this paper, we investigate the integration of virtual knowledge communities (VKC) into an ontology-driven uncertainty model (OntoBayes). The selected overall framework for OntoBayes is the
PR-OWL: A Bayesian Ontology Language for the Semantic Web
By providing a principled means of modeling uncertainty in ontologies, PR-OWL can be seen as a supporting tool for many applications that can benefit from probabilistic inference within an ontology language, thus representing an important step toward the W3C's vision for the Semantic Web.
BayesOWL: A Probabilistic Framework for Semantic Web
A theoretical framework is developed that incorporates the Bayesian network (BN), a widely used graphic model for probabilistic interdependency, into the web ontology language OWL and can be easily extended to handle other ontology representation formalisms, if not using OWL.

An ontology-driven model, which integrates Bayesian networks (BN) into the Ontology Web Language (OWL) to preserve the advantages of both and enable agents to act under uncertainty and complex structured open environments at the same time.
Probabilistic Information Retrieval Based on Conceptual Overlap in Semantic Web Ontologies
A new probabilistic method is presented based on the modeling of degrees of overlap between concepts in an ontology that can be modeled and computed efficiently using Bayesian networks based on RDF(S) ontologies.
A Bayesian Approach to Uncertainty Modelling in OWL Ontology
The authors' on-going research on modelling uncertainty in ontologies based on Bayesian networks (BN) includes extending OWL to allow additional probabilistic markups for attaching probability information and converting a probabilistically annotated OWL ontology into a BN structure by a set of structural translation rules.
Building Bayesian Networks through Ontologies
A methodology is designed and studied its use within the domain of oesophageal cancer, based upon expert knowledge and a previously constructed Bayesian network, and an ontology is built for this domain, from which a new network is constructed.
Ontologies for Probabilistic Networks
An ontology is constructed based upon a real-life probabilistic network for the staging of cancer of the oesophagus and the knowledge elicited for its construction, and the benefits of using ontologies in engineering Probabilistic networks are outlined.
