Rule Modeling Using Semantic MediaWiki

Bao, Jie, Ding, Li, Smart, Paul R, Braines, Dave and Jones, Gareth (2009) Rule Modeling Using Semantic MediaWiki At 3rd Annual Conference of the International Technology Alliance (ACITA'09), United States. 23 - 24 Sep 2009.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Semantic MediaWiki (SMW) is a popular semantic wiki engine that enables collective knowledge modeling within the expressivity of a small subset of OWL. However, SMW is limited in offering native support for modeling rules. In this paper, we show that by using templates and semantic queries provided by SMW, it is possible to model several types of rules within SMW, e.g., OWL entailment rules and logic programs. Such modeling practice enables us to perform some broadly useful inference tasks on SMW, e.g., integrity constraint checking.
