Architecture of DSSim

Vargas-Vera, Maria and Nagy, Miklos (2015). Architecture of DSSim. International Journal of Knowledge Society Research, 6(2) pp. 65–82.



This paper presents the architecture of DSSim (DSSim stands for Similarity based on Dempster-Shafer) our multi-agent ontology mapping system. It describes several types of agents and their roles in the DSSim architecture. These agents are mapping agents which are able to perform either semantic or syntactic similarity. The authors' architecture is generic as no mappings need to be learned in advance and it could be easily extended by adding new mapping agents in the framework. These new mapping agents could run different similarity algorithms either semantic or syntactic. In this way, DSSim could assess which algorithm has a better performance. Additionally, this paper presents the main algorithms used in DSSim and discusses DSSim advantages and drawbacks.
