Legal Ontology Engineering: Methodologies, Modelling Trends, by Núria Casellas

By Núria Casellas

Enabling details interoperability, fostering felony wisdom usability and reuse, bettering criminal details seek, in brief, formalizing the complexity of criminal wisdom to reinforce felony wisdom administration are hard initiatives, for which assorted strategies and features of study were proposed.

During the decade, examine and functions in line with using felony ontologies as a strategy to symbolize felony wisdom has raised a truly attention-grabbing debate approximately their potential and barriers to symbolize conceptual buildings within the criminal area. Making conceptual felony wisdom particular could aid the improvement of an internet of felony wisdom, increase verbal exchange, create belief and allow and aid open information, e-government and e-democracy actions. in addition, this specific wisdom is additionally proper to the formalization of software program brokers and the shaping of digital associations and multi-agent structures or environments.

This e-book explores using ontologism in criminal wisdom illustration for semantically-enhanced felony wisdom structures or web-based functions. In it, present methodologies, instruments and languages used for ontology improvement are revised, and the e-book contains an exhaustive revision of current ontologies within the criminal area. the improvement of the Ontology Judicial wisdom (OPJK) is gifted as a case study.
