Abstract / Description of output

Uncertainty reasoning and inconsistency handling are two important problems that often occur in the applications of the Semantic Web. Possibilistic description logics provide a flexible framework for representing and reasoning with ontologies where uncertain and/or inconsistent information exists. Based on our previous work, we develop a possibilistic description logic reasoner. Our demo will illustrate functionalities of our reasoner for various reasoning tasks that possibilistic description logics can provide.
