Forgetting in Managing Rules and Ontologies
MetadataShow full item record
The language of HEX-programs under the answer-set semantics is designed for interoperating with heterogeneous sources via external atoms and for meta-reasoning via higher-order literals in the context of the semantic Web. As an important technique in managing knowledge bases, the notion of forgetting has received increasing interest in the knowledge-representation area. In this paper, we introduce a semantics-based theory of forgetting for HEX-programs and, in turn, for a class of OWL/RDF(S) ontologies which allows to fully employ semantic information in managing ontologies like editing, merging, aligning, and redundancy removal.
