reusable components
Reusable Components
  • Knowledge-Based Systems consist of:
    • Domain Knowledge
      • Domain Ontology
      • Knowledge Base instances
    • Domain-independent Problem-Solving Methods (PSM)
      • Input and output described by method ontology
  • For a given task, relevant domain knowledge and PSM may already exist
  • In order for a PSM to solve a domain-specific task:
    • PSM needs to be connected to domain knowledge
    • Mapping Relations define translation of concepts and objects

Jos de Bruijn

mappings between kbs components
Mappings between KBS components
  • Mappings are defined as:
    • Whatever mechanisms are used to convert between structures existing in one component and analogous structures expected by another
  • Types of mappings:
    • Implicit mapping:
      • also component adaptation.
      • The object definitions in one component are changed to fit the requirements of the other
    • Procedural mappings:
      • translation code to convert instances from one representation to another.
      • Difficult to reuse
    • Declarative mappings:
      • Easier to reuse
      • Mappings convey the intent of the mapping: what instead of how

Jos de Bruijn

mapping ontology requirements
Mapping Ontology - Requirements
  • Expressiveness
  • Ease of Use
    • Design of mappings should be straightforward
  • Clarity
    • Mappings should be easy to reuse and comprehend
  • Parsimony
    • Set of mapping relations should be minimized
    • Number of classes in ontology should be kept small
  • Efficiency
  • Principled design/natural distinctions
    • Should be based on both theoretical and practical requirements of mapping task

Jos de Bruijn

mapping ontology mapping the properties
Mapping Ontology – Mapping the properties
  • Complex objects are decomposed into simple objects (corresponding to properties) for mapping
  • Four dimensions for the mapping task:
    • Power/complexity
    • Scope
      • The range of domain classes
    • Dynamicity
      • When and how a mapping should be invoked (precompiled vs. run-time)
    • Cardinality
      • 1-1, 1-n, n-1

Jos de Bruijn

mapping patterns
Mapping Patterns
  • Mapping patterns capture sets of mapping relations applied to similar domain-to-method conversions
  • Benefits:
    • Less repetition in mapping specification
    • Increased reliability
    • Reduced verbosity of the mappings
    • Convey the intent of the mapping
