Abstract

In order to realize the on-the-fly ontology construction for the Semantic Web, this paper proposes DODDLE-R, a support environment for user-centered ontology development. It consists of two main parts: pre-processing part and quality improvement part. Pre-processing part generates a prototype ontology semi-automatically, and quality improvement part supports the refinement of it interactively. As we believe that careful construction of ontologies from preliminary phase is more efficient than attempting generate ontologies full-automatically (it may cause too many modification by hand), quality improvement part plays significant role in DODDLE-R. Through interactive support for improving the quality of prototype ontology, OWL-Lite level ontology, which consists of taxonomic relationships (class - sub class relationship) and non-taxonomic relationships (defined as property), is constructed efficiently.
