Abstract

Within multi-agent systems, it is almost impossible for multiple Web agents to completely share a same vocabulary. This makes multi-agent communication difficult. In this paper, we proposed an approach for better multi-agent communication using approximation technology of semantic terminology across multiple ontolgies. This method uses description logic language for describing ontological information and perform approximate query across multiple ontologies.
