Knowledge representation with ontologies: present challenges future possibilities

Christopher A. Brewster, Kieron O'Hara

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


Ontologies have become the knowledge representation medium of choice in recent years for a range of computer science specialities including the Semantic Web, Agents, and Bio-informatics. There has been a great deal of research and development in this area combined with hype and reaction. This special issue is concerned with the limitations of ontologies and how these can be addressed, together with a consideration of how we can circumvent or go beyond these constraints. The introduction places the discussion in context and presents the papers included in this issue.
