Approche d'évolution d'ontologie guidée par des patrons de gestion de changement.

Abstract : The research developed in this thesis defines an ontology evolution approach Onto-Evoal (Ontology Evolution-Evaluation) guided by Change Management Pattern (CMP) modeling. CMP patterns specify three categories of classes: Change, Inconsistency and Resolution Alternative. Based on the modeled patterns and the semantic relations between them, we propose an automated process driving change application while maintaining consistency of the evolved ontology. In addition, the approach integrates an evaluation activity supported by an ontology quality model that we have defined. The quality model is used to guide inconsistency resolution by assessing the impact of the resolutions proposed by the evolution process on ontology quality and selecting the resolution that preserves the quality of the evolved ontology. Change management depends closely on the ontology representation model, we focus on OWL language and we consider change impact on logical consistency as specified in OWL DL layer. The main contributions of the approach are: Change Management Patterns guiding the ontology evolution process; the use of quality evaluation to optimize change resolution; and a formal and explicit modeling of the evolution log.
