Project Description
Current technological tools for description of semantic knowledge are insufficient to support adequate automated reasoning in a dynamic (real-world) knowledge space. The objective of the project is to expand the current state of the art ontology languages (OWL, RDF-S, RDF) and their support for automated reasoning by adding a spatial dimension to enable real time context aware information analysis. This technology will provide ontology based (semantic) information systems to venture beyond a static world and add the concepts of space and change.
