Searching the Semantic Web: Approximate Query Processing Based on Ontologies
January/February 2006 (vol. 21 no. 1)
pp. 20-27
In the context of the Semantic Web, many possible executing queries wouldn't retrieve any resources. This is because the viewpoints of ontology designers, annotation designers, and users performing a Web search don't always match, leading to missed answers. Approximate query processing is thus of prime importance for efficiently searching the Semantic Web. The Corese ontology-based search engine handles RDF Schema, part of and OWL Lite and RDF metadata, and can process approximate queries.

This article is part of a special issue on AI, Agents, and the Web.
