Abstract / Description of output

A matchmaking system for finding renting houses is required as the housing problem becomes serious in China and many people resort to rent a house. A semantic approach based on abductive conjunctive query answering (CQA) in Description Logic ontologies is exploited to provide more matches for a request about renting houses. Moreover, a matchmaking system based on this approach is developed. This demo will guide users to find suitable renting houses using this matchmaking system and show the advantages of the system.
