This paper introduces the Protégé plugin uDecide. With the help of uDecide it is possible to solve multi-attribute decision making problems encoded in a straight forward extension of standard Description Logics. The formalism allows to specify background knowledge in terms of an ontology, while each attribute is represented as a weighted class expression. On top of such an approach one can compute the best choice (or the best k-choices) taking background knowledge into account in the… Expand
Intelligent Software Web Agents: A Gap Analysis
This paper examines the status quo in terms of intelligent software web agents, guided by research with respect to requirements and architectural components, coming from that agents community, and proposes a hybrid semantic web agent architecture. Expand
Optimisation of tableau-based reasoning systems for expressive description logics


Weighted Description Logics Preference Formulas for Multiattribute Negotiation
A logic based approach to preference representation allows, when a background knowledge base is exploited, to relax the often unrealistic assumption of additive independence among attributes. Expand
Konclude: System description
Konclude’s interface options, reasoner architecture, processing workflow, and key optimisations are described, and results of a comparison with other widely used OWL 2 reasoning systems are provided, which show that Konclude performs eminently well on ontologies from any language fragment of OWL2.

Multi-Attribute Decision Making using Weighted Description Logics
We introduce a framework based on Description Logics, which can be used to encode and solve decision problems in terms of combining inference services in DL and utility theory to representExpand
Tractable Reasoning and Efficient Query Answering in Description Logics: The DL-Lite Family
It is shown that, for the DLs of the DL-Lite family, the usual DL reasoning tasks are polynomial in the size of the TBox, and query answering is LogSpace in thesize of the ABox, which is the first result ofPolynomial-time data complexity for query answering over DL knowledge bases. Expand
Pushing the EL Envelope
This work identifies a set of expressive means that can be added to EL without sacrificing tractability, and shows that basically all other additions of typical DL constructors to EL with GCIs make subsumption intractable, and in most cases even EXPTIME-complete. Expand
Expressive Power of Weighted Propositional Formulas for Cardinal Preference Modeling
The aim in this paper is to establish correspondences between certain types of weighted formulas and well-known classes of utility functions (such as monotonic, concave or k-additive functions) and to obtain results on the comparative succinctness of different types of Weighted Formula for representing the same class of Utility functions.

Fuzzy Multi-Criteria Decision Making: Theory and Applications with Recent Developments
"Fuzzy Multi-Criteria Decision Making" (MCDM) presents fuzzy multiattribute and multiobjective decision-making methodologies by distinguished MCDM researchers, summarizing the concepts and results of the most popular fuzzy multicriteria methods. Expand
Decisions with Multiple Objectives: Preferences and Value Trade-Offs
This book describes how a confused decision maker, who wishes to make a reasonable and responsible choice among alternatives, can systematically probe his true feelings in order to make those critically important, vexing trade-offs between incommensurable objectives. Expand
