Abstract

Ontology evolution is a painstaking and time-consuming process, especially in information rich and dynamic domains. While ontology evolution refers both to the adaptation of ontologies (e.g., through additions or updates possibly discovered from external data sources) and the management of these changes, no existing tools offer both functionalities. The Evolva framework aims to be a blueprint for a comprehensive ontology evolution tool that would cover both tasks. Additionally, Evolva proposes the use of background knowledge sources to reduce user involvement in the ontology adaptation step. This demo focuses on the initial, concrete implementation of our framework.
