“Comparison of Rule based Semantic Web Reasoners for Ontologies in OWL2 Profile”

Deepika Chaudhary, Dr. Archana Mantri, Dr. D.P.Kothari


The Semantic Web is a vision for the future of the Web in which information is given explicit meaning, making it easier for machines to automatically process and integrate information available on the Web[1]. In semantic web, Knowledge can be encoded using a formal language termed as OWL (Ontology Web Language). To keep this language alive Progression of OWL2 from OWL is one such major step. OWL2 is a strong Modeling language and extends the W3C OWL with a small but useful set of features. The objective of this study is an attempt to highlight those features and to provide and indepth analysis on:
a. Introduction to three profiles of OWL2 with a particular focus on how these profiles differ and why the differences are important.
b. Comparison of OWL Profiles on the basis of Usage, Reasoning Time, Complexity and Algorithms.
c. Reasoning in OWL RL Profile and comparison of Reasoners in OWL RL Profiles.

Keywords: OWL – Ontology Web Language, OWL axioms – Inference rules
