Introduction

OntoCloud

OntoCloud is a project to enrich the ontology using DBpedia as a pivot. (October 2009 ~ )

Thus, for the last few years, we investigated and extracted the IT datasets using semantic web technologies and translated it into ontology such as IT-core, IT-device, IT-service and IT-life. However those ontologies have similar concepts and it is against the objective of ontology construction. We need to fix it and to develop a pivot dataset before we try to merge or map them for enabling ontology sharing and reasoning. OntoCloud defines part of the common relationships based on the Wikipedia infobox dataset from DBpedia3.4. We take and use it as a pivot to construct the dataset in the OntoCloud.

The basic idea behind OntoCloud is in essence quite simple: Ontology is an expression of the relationships among set of entities. It is used in various services such as medical science, intelligent web, sensor network and pervasive computing, etc. There are needs to meet information technologies(IT)for utilizing various services as previous described.

Goals

We propose to enrich the machine readable knowledge with the OntoCloud ontology.

The purpose of this project is two-fold: (1) to integrate OntoCloud that linked to Linking Open Data cloud and (2) to provide information that helps developing applications for utilizing semantic services such as Semantic Post-IT and the CoreOnto Annotation Toolkit.
