About this book

Recording knowledge in a common framework that would make it possible to seamlessly share global knowledge remains an important challenge for researchers. This brief examines several ideas about the representation of knowledge addressing this challenge. A widespread general agreement is followed that states uniform knowledge representation should be achievable by using ontologies populated with concepts.

A separate chapter is dedicated to each of the three introduced topics, following a uniform outline: definition, organization, and use. This brief is intended for those who want to get to know the field of knowledge representation quickly, or would like to be up to date with current developments in the field. It is also useful for those dealing with implementation as examples of numerous operational systems are also given.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“The book is primarily intended for students, researchers, and practitioners interested in entry-level material on ontologies and knowledge representation. Each chapter provides references to recent books and papers for readers who want to investigate a topic in more detail. … The text is written to be accessible to most readers with a general knowledge of computer science (CS). … a starting point for learning the basics of ontology-based knowledge representation and finding the right references for further study.” (Corrado Mencar, Computing Reviews, November, 2013)
