Ontology reconciliation agent (Forschungszentrum Informatik)

The Ontologging Ontology Reconciliation agent (ORA) mediates between different ontologies by letting agents negotiate about their conceptual structures. ORA allows Ontology Mapping by implementing the MAFRA methodology which can be summarized as follows:
- Lift the data onto a common representation,

- Discover similarities between two ontologies,

- Define bridges between the two ontologies, where bridges are represented as instances of a mapping ontology,

- Execute the bridges to transform instances from one ontology into another,

- Post process the data (e.g. to remove duplicates).

These steps are supported by the ORA software. In addition to this Ontology Mapping approach, another way of using multiple ontologies which we support is by Ontology Inclusion.
