Towards a collaborative framework for ontology engineering : Impact on ontology evolution and pitfalls in ontology networks and versioned ontologies

Abstract : Ontologies are at the heart of the semantic web. Using ontologies leads to a better understanding, sharing and analyzing of knowledge in a specific domain. However, domains’ description are subject to changes, thus arises the need to evolve ontologies in order to have an adequate representation of the targeted domain. In this thesis, we assume that studying how the development and evolution of ontologies affect and is affected by the evolution of related artifacts, may help knowledge engineers in their tasks. Artifacts can be either external ontologies that are connected to a specific ontology or a service that take advantage of a specific ontology. Hence, we build up upon a comprehensive ontology evolution life-cycle. We introduce the following contributions: 1. a definition for a situation to detect the need of ontology evolution, 2. an original approach for ontology enrichment using external knowledge bases, 3. a new definition related to ontology evolution, named “ontology co-evolution” is used to assess the impact of ontology evolution, and 4. a new categorization of ontology pitfalls along with an evaluation of their importance and potential impact on versioned ontologies and ontology networks.
