Ontology-based multi-agent system to support business users and management

  title={Ontology-based multi-agent system to support business users and management},
  author={Dejan Lavbic and Olegas Vasilecas and Rok Rupnik},
Abstract For some decision processes a significant added value is achieved when enterprises’ internal Data Warehouse (DW) can be integrated and combined with external data gained from web sites of competitors and other relevant Web sources. In this paper we discuss the agent‐based integration approach using ontologies (DSS‐MAS). In this approach data from internal DW and external sources are scanned by coordinated group of agents, while semantically integrated and relevant data is reported to…

Software Agent-Centric Semantic Social Network for Cyber-Physical Interaction and Collaboration
A software agent-centric Semantic Social-Collaborative Network (SSCN) is presented that provides functionality to represent and manage cyber-physical resources in a social network and is supported by an extended ontology model for semantically describing human and nonhuman resources and their social interactions.

Ontology Services-Based Information Integration in Mining Telecom Business Intelligence
An internal linkage and communication channel, namely an ontology service-based match and translation among user interface, DW, and enterprise information systems, is developed, which implements unified naming and directory of ontology services, metadata management and rule generation for ontology mapping and query parsing.
Ontology-Based Information Systems Development: The Problem of Automation of Information Processing Rules
The method is based on ontology transformation of axioms presented in a formal way into (semi-) formal information processing rules in the form of executable rules, like active DBMS triggers, which is implemented into the developed prototype.

A formal model of domain ontology and knowledge base is presented, which aims at providing a vehicle for representing information and knowledge using a common shared semantics in a given application domain.
Constructing intelligent and open mobile commerce using a semantic web approach
A framework is proposed in which semantic web ontology is used to model the contexts, user profiles, and product/service information in m-Commerce, and the semantic web rule language is used for inferencing with context and user profile descriptions.
Fuzzy semantic tagging and flexible querying of XML documents extracted from the Web
The approach is generic, and driven by a domain ontology, which proposes to use tags expressed in terms of a possibility distribution representing a set of possible terms, each term being weighted by a possibility degree.
Heterogeneous Domain Ontology for Location Based Information System in a Multi-agent Framework
A global ontology to let agents work with heterogeneous domains using a wireless network to provide customization about different environment services based on user location and profile is proposed.
Formal Ontology and Information Systems
It is argued in this paper that so-called ontologies present their own methodological and architectural peculiarities: on the methodological side, their main peculiarity is the adoption of a highly interdisciplinary approach, while on the architectural side the most interesting aspect is the centrality of the role they can play in an information system, leading to the perspective of ontology-driven information systems.
Managing Source Schema Evolution in Web Warehouses
This work addresses the effects of adding/removing/changing Web sources and data items to the Data Warehouse (DW) schema and proposes a wrapper/mediator architecture, which reduces the impact of Web source changes on the DW schema.
