Translations between Ontologies in Multi-Agent Systems


  • Marek Obitko, FEL ČVUT Praha

For communication between agents it is necessary that agents
understand the messages that they exchange. The meaning of messages is
partially captured in an ontology. However, in open multi-agent
systems it is possible that agents use different ontologies for
expressing their messages. In this talk, the advantages of usage of
semantic web technologies for FIPA (Foundation for Intelligent
Physical Agents) based agents will be discussed with the focus on
multi-agent systems used in manufacturing domain. Three possibilities
of translation between OWL ontologies will be shown and illustrated on
transportation domain, including the discussion of embedding the
translation into multi-agent system. The application of semantic
search in manufacturing domain will be briefly discussed as well.
