Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 7802)


The following text presents the method of supplementing and verifying information stored in a framework system of the semantic knowledge base. The indicated method refers to the knowledge of ontological character, in other words to information about definitions of concepts and relationships among them. The aim of the method is the constant supplementing and verifying of the knowledge, and making more precise and detailed information about existing connections between concepts. The key aspect of the method is questions generating strictly dependent on the preconceived structure of stored knowledge.
