Abstract

Extensive research activities are recently directed towards the Semantic Web as a future form of the Web. Consequently, Web search as the key technology of the Web is evolving towards some novel form of Semantic Web search. A very promising recent such approach is based on combining standard Web pages and search queries with ontological background knowledge, and using standard Web search engines as the main inference motor of Semantic Web search. In this paper, we further enhance this approach to Semantic Web search by the use of inductive reasoning techniques. This adds especially the important ability to handle inconsistencies, noise, and incompleteness, which are all very likely to occur in distributed and heterogeneous environments, such as the Web. We report on a prototype implementation of the new approach and experimental results.
