Many challenges of bringing communicating multi-agent systems to the World Wide Web require ontologies. The integration of agent technology and ontologies could significantly affect the use of Web services and the ability to extend programs to perform tasks for users more efficiently and with less human intervention.

Approximate Semantic Query Based on Multi-agent Systems

TLDR
This paper proposed an approach for better multi-agent communication using approximation technology of semantic terminology across multiple ontolgies using description logic language for describing ontological information and perform approximate query across several ontologies.

TLDR
The paper shows the integration of agent technology and ontology may make significant impact on the use of Web services and the ability to extend programs to more efficiently perform tasks for users with less human intervention.

ENABLING INTELLIGENT AGENTS AND THE SEMANTIC WEB FOR E-COMMERCE

TLDR
This paper examines an impact of the growing intelligent agent technologies and the Semantic Web on the phenomenon of e-commerce and how the integration of theSemantic Web and intelligent agents can provide a new environment for the secure and scalable e- commerce applications.

Towards a Knowledge-Based Framework for Agents Interacting in the Semantic Web

TLDR
A multi-agent system was extended with defeasible reasoning and a reusable agent model is proposed for customizable agents, equipped with a knowledge base and a Jess rule engine, on the first steps towards a framework for interoperating knowledge-based intelligent agents.

Description and Generation of Computational Agents

TLDR
The logical description of multi-agent systems opens Bang 3 for interaction with ontology based distributed knowledge systems like the Semantic Web.

Integrating Agent Technologies into Enterprise Systems Using Web Services

TLDR
A decoupled architectural approach that allows Software Agents to interoperate with enterprise systems using Web Services in order to reduce the time-to-market and increase the adoption of agent-based applications is presented.

Multi-Agent Systems Integration in Enterprise Environments Using Web Services

TLDR
A decoupled architectural approach that allows Software Agents to interoperate with enterprise systems using Web Services in order to reduce the time-to-market and increase the adoption of agent-based applications is presented.

Implementation of ontology mapping for computational agents

TLDR
This paper focuses on ways of representing agents and systems in standard formalisms, such as description logics, OWL, and Jade, to allow for autonomous behavior and semi-automatic composition of agents within a multi-agent system.

Configuring Computational Agents

TLDR
The logical description of multiagent systems opens Bang 3 for interaction with ontology based distributed knowledge systems like the Semantic Web or the Knowledge Grid.

Using Multi-Agent Based Middleware to Implement a Distributed Peer-To-Peer Semantic Service Oriented Architecture

TLDR
This work gives a broad outline of the prototype architecture and preliminary correctness results of a novel approach to semantic web service based applications around the use of so-called intelligent agents as the basis for the middleware layer.

Designing Ontologies for Agents

TLDR
This paper considers in detail the use of explicit ontologies in CaseLP, a declarative logical framework for prototyping agent-based applications, and introduces an agent level ontology to formalize attributes and functionalities of CaseLP agents.

Dynamic Ontologies on the Web

TLDR
This work presents SHOE, a web-based knowledge representation language that supports multiple versions of ontologies, in the terms of a logic that separates data from ontologies and allows ontologies to provide different perspectives on the data.

The Component Model of UPML in a Nutshell

TLDR
The components and connectors provided by UPML are sketched and it is shown how these components can be adapted for semiautomatic reuse and adaptation.

Modeling and Programming Devices and Web Agents

TLDR
This paper integrates research in robot programming and reasoning about action with research in model-based reasoning about physical systems to provide a capability for modeling and programming devices and web agents, which is realized by exploiting research on the logic programming language Golog.

Building Concept Representations from Reusable Components

TLDR
This work extends the normal inheritance approach used in frame-based systems, and imports ideas from several different areas of AI, in particular compositional modeling, terminological reasoning, and ontological engineering, to improve the efficiency of building knowledge bases and the robustness of using them.

A translation approach to portable ontology specifications

TLDR
This paper describes a mechanism for defining ontologies that are portable over representation systems, basing Ontolingua itself on an ontology of domain-independent, representational idioms.

OIL in a Nutshell

TLDR
This work will present OIL, which is a proposal for a joint standard for specifying and exchanging ontologies, based on existing proposals such as OKBC, XOL and RDF schema, enriching them with necessary features for expressing ontologies.

Knowledge Interchange Format Version 3.0 Reference Manual

TLDR
Knowledge Interchange Format (KIF) is a computer-oriented language for the interchange of knowledge among disparate programs that has declarative semantics and logically comprehensive semantics.

Reading Between the Lines: Using SHOE to Discover Implicit Knowledge from the Web

TLDR
This paper describes how SHOE, a set of Simple HTML Ontological Extensions, can be used to discover implicit knowledge from the World-Wide Web through the use of context, inheritance and inference.
