Formal Support for Representing and Automating Semantic Interoperability

Formal Support for Representing and Automating Semantic Interoperability
Formal Support for Representing and Automating Semantic Interoperability
We discuss approaches to semantic heterogeneity and propose a formalisation of semantic interoperability based on the Barwise-Seligman theory of information flow. We argue for a theoretical framework that favours the analysis and implementation of semantic interoperability scenarios relative to particular understandings of semantics. We present an example case of such a scenario where our framework has been applied as well as variations of it in the domain of ontology mapping.

Abstract

We discuss approaches to semantic heterogeneity and propose a formalisation of semantic interoperability based on the Barwise-Seligman theory of information flow. We argue for a theoretical framework that favours the analysis and implementation of semantic interoperability scenarios relative to particular understandings of semantics. We present an example case of such a scenario where our framework has been applied as well as variations of it in the domain of ontology mapping.
