Self-Modifying Ontologies: Displaying the Domain Variability

EasyChair Preprint no. 13295

9 pagesDate: May 15, 2024


Ontology is a proven way to describe some domain. A toolkit for describing ontologies has been developed, and this toolkit is the OWL (Web Ontology Language) language. Despite the abundance of constructions in OWL, there are tasks that are difficult to describe using the OWL language. This complexity of description is associated with the need to depict transformations that occur with objects in the domain constantly or from time to time, such as radioactivity, which transforms one element into another or others. To some extent, here the statics of the expressive means of the OWL language comes into conflict with the dynamics of the domain. This paper addresses the problem of the difficulty of displaying the natural dynamics of some subject areas, and suggests ways to overcome this problem. It is proposed to supplement the OWL language with some constructions, which will transform the ontology from static to dynamic and even to self-modifying.
