Boran, A., Bedini, I., Matheus, C.J., Patel-Schneider, P.F., Keeney, J.,, Choosing between Axioms, Rules and Queries: Experiments in Semantic Integration Techniques, in Proceedings of the Eighth International Workshop on OWL: Experiences and Directions (OWLED 2011), San Francisco, California, USA, June 5-6, 2011, 2011
When using semantic technologies developers are frequently
confused about which specific inferencing technique is best to use for a given
problem. As an initial step towards identifying "best practices" for users of
semantic technologies we are conducting a series of experiments to contrast the
benefits and limitations of three approaches to inferring cross-data
relationships: RDFS/OWL axioms, user-defined rules and SPARQL queries.
At the highest level our aim is to identify which approaches provide the best (or
acceptable) solutions in terms of memory use, cpu cycles and developer effort,
given a variety of specific problem characteristics. In this paper we describe the
three semantic approaches we are investigating, identify three broad problem
areas in our initial focus and summarize some preliminary results.
