Towards a generation-based semantic web authoring tool

Power, Richard (2009). Towards a generation-based semantic web authoring tool. In: Proceedings of the 12th European Workshop on Natural Language Generation, 30-31 Mar 2009, Athens, Greece.




Widespread use of Semantic Web technologies requires interfaces through which knowledge can be viewed and edited without deep understanding of Description Logic and formalisms like OWL and RDF. Several groups are pursuing approaches based on Controlled Natural Languages (CNLs), so that editing can be performed by typing in sentences which are automatically interpreted as statements in OWL. We suggest here a variant of this approach which relies entirely on Natural Language Generation (NLG), and propose requirements for a system that can reliably generate transparent realisations of statements in Description Logic.
