Upwardly Abstracted Definition-Based Subontologies

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review


In this paper, we present a method for extracting subontologies from ELH ontologies for a set of symbols. The approach is focused on the generation of upwardly abstracted definitions of concepts, which is a technique for computing definitions expressed using closest primitive ancestors. The subontologies returned by the method are evaluated for quality and compared to extracts computed with locality-based modularisation and uniform interpolation. Our subontology generation method produces promising results in terms of size and relevance to the needs of domain experts.
