The short answer is no.    (02)

OWL was deliberately limited in capability, and it was designed for
processing RDF data.    (03)

AI projects such as IBM's system, Cyc, our VivoMind work, and many
other systems for NLP use much richer and more complex knowledge
representation and reasoning systems than OWL.  And they use far
more efficient data representations than RDF.    (04)

OWL was never designed for AI or NLP.    (05)
