Title: A Consequence-based Algebraic Calculus for SHOQ

Date: Thursday, March 29, 2018

Time: 11:40 a.m.

Place: EV 3.309


Description Logics (DLs) are the foundation of Semantic Web. This seminar is about a novel consequence-based algorithm to perform ontology classification in description logic SHOQ, which support nominals and Qualified Cardinality Restrictions (QCRs). Our algorithm maps numerical restrictions imposed by QCRs or nominals to inequalities and determines the feasibility of inequality systems by means of Integer Linear Programming.
