Abstract

Developing ontologies is not an easy task and often the resulting ontologies are not consistent or complete. Such ontologies, although often useful, lead to problems when used in semantically-enabled applications.Wrong conclusions may be derived or valid conclusions may be missed. Defects in ontologies can take different forms. Syntactic defects are usually easy to find and to resolve. Defects regarding style include such things as unintended redundancy. More severe defects are the modeling defects which require domain knowledge to detect and resolve, and semantic defects such as unsatisfiable concepts and inconsistent ontologies.
