A Note on Methodology for Designing Ontology Management Systems

Francesco Colace, Massimo De Santo, Paolo Napoletano

In this note we propose a novel methodology for designing Ontology Management Systems architecture, which grounds on an ontology representation based on probabilistic Graphical Models. By discussing about troubles with ontology as tool for managing knowledge, formal assumptions about semantics definition and representations rise, turning out an original architecture that will be presented and discussed. In the paper we will further detail and discuss the OMS proposal, focusing on how methodologies and representation can fruitfully rely upon probabilistic GM.
