People, organizations and software systems must communicate between and among themselves. However, due to different needs and background contexts, there can be widely varying viewpoints and assumptions regarding what is essentially the same subject matter. There is a need to reduce or eliminate conceptual and terminological confusion and come to a shared understanding, the development and implementation of an explicit account of a shared understanding (i.e. an ’ontology’) in a given subject area, can improve such communication, which in turn can give rise to greater reuse and sharing, inter-operability, and more reliable software. Ontology can be defined as “a formal representation of knowledge as a set of concepts within a domain, and the relationships between those concepts”.
Ontology engineering in computer science and information science is a new field, which studies the methods and methodologies for building ontologies: formal representations of a set of concepts within a domain and the relationships between those concepts. An ontology language is a formal language used to encode the ontology|
