Using Fuzzy Rough Concept Lattices Merging and Presenting Domain Ontology


Article Preview

As the foundation of the semantic web, ontology is a formal, explicit specification of a shared conceptual model. It becomes an important problem on ontology application to merg and present ontology. However, there are some defects between several kinds of existing ontology application methods in many aspects. The paper offers a methodology of ontology merging for knowledge sharing and reusing based on fuzzy concept concept lattice union in order to makes up these defects.This paper proposes the means of ontology presenting based on the form of concept lattices visualizing in three-dimensional space. The experimental results indicate that this method has great validity.
