Subject: Re: [ontolog-forum] help needed on Agents and Ontologies
My 2 cents, are as follows:
1.could you please tell me how to code Agents with explicit ontologies ?If the ontologies are expressed in a machine-readable syntax, the agent can read, interpret, reason, and execute over any of them (e.g., OWL, XML Schema) -- assuming you program you agent to interpret the chosen syntax.
If it’s machine accessible and machine readable by the agent, yes you can.
2.suppose if we are building Multi-Agent Systems which accesses ontologies from a Ontology server, can we use existing ontology repositories in conjunction with our Multi agent system.
JADE can be used in conjunction with any ontology repository/ontology server.
3.please tell me some of open-source available ontology repositories/ontology servers that can be used in-conjunction with JADE platform
4.which Ontology representation language is suitable for such explicit ontologies?
This depends on how rich the ontology representation must be. A simple syntax that cam be used is XMLSchema produced by, say, XML Spy. If you need more advanced constructs (e.g., High-order representation) Full OWL might be necessary. In other words, choose the ontology language that adequately supports the problem domain — and you have tool support for.
Hope this helps. If not, ping me again.
All the best,
