The Semantic Web must handle applications that face uncertain and imprecise information, including random, fuzzy, missing, and distorted knowledge. Many researchers have proposed extending OWL and Description Logic to deal with such uncertainty. f-OWL, a fuzzy extension to OWL, can capture imprecise and vague knowledge. The accompanying Fuzzy Reasoning Engine lets f-OWL capture and reason about such knowledge.
Index Terms:
fuzzy knowledge, OWL, Description Logic, reasoning, uncertainty, Semantic Web
