Comparison of implemented ontologies

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleAcademic


    A number of groups developing knowledge-based systems have found (or at least posited) that the design and representation of a limitative set of concepts and relations, a so-called ontology, can contribute to sharing and reusing knowledge bases. However, very few descriptions of implemented ontologies have appeared in the literature. No comparison of competing proposals is available, let alone an empirical determination of the benefits of using an ontology. There is no accepted method for designing and building such ontologies, nor is it clear how ontologies can best be evaluated.
