July 4, 2014 3:20 PM
Prof. Harold Boley talked on The Many Uses of Rules in Ontology-Based Data Access (http://www.cs.unb.ca/~boley/talks/RulesOBDA.pdf) at the Kolloquium Informatik (http://www.mi.fu-berlin.de/inf/dates/kolloquium/Boley.html) / Semantic Web Meetup (http://www.meetup.com/The-Berlin-Semantic-Web-Meetup-Group/events/187185782/), Freie Universität Berlin, Germany, July 4, 2014, moderated by Prof. Adrian Paschke. The talk explained the three major concepts of Ontology-Based Data Access (OBDA) -- queries, ontologies, and mappings -- as rules, and presented a unified architecture for Rule-Based Data Access (RBDA, http://wiki.ruleml.org/index.php/Rule-Based_Data_Access). The discussion went, among other things, into the uniformity advantages of RBDA and the DeltaForest case study at WSL Birmensdorf, Switzerland, on the susceptibility of forests to climate change.
