Abstract

The success of the semantic web depends largely on how well ontologies can be utilized and formulated. Interoperability between systems using different versions of the same ontology is essential, and this implies the need for a regulated derivation of materialized ontology views (which can be considered a modified version of an ontology). This chapter applies the formalisms for such a derivation process to a practical example, emphasizing the possibility for automation, and also for optimization, to develop a high-quality derived ontology.
