Structure preserving TBox repair using defaults


Scharrenbach, T; Grütter, R; Waldvogel, B; Bernstein, A (2010). Structure preserving TBox repair using defaults. In: 23rd International Workshop on Description Logics (DL 2010), Waterloo, Canada, 2010 - 2010, 384-395.

Abstract

Unsatisfiable concepts are a major cause for inconsistencies in Description Logics knowledge bases. Popular methods for repairing such concepts aim to remove or rewrite axioms to resolve the conflict by the original logics used. Under certain conditions, however, the structure and intention of the original axioms must be preserved in the knowledge base. This, in turn, requires changing the underlying logics for repair. In this paper, we show how Probabilistic Description Logics, a variant of Reiter’s default logics with Lehmann’s Lexicographical Entailment, can be used to resolve conflicts fully-automatically and receive a consistent knowledge base from which inferences can be drawn again.
