A knowledge base incremental creation using a data base, ontology and expert knowledge

Jarosław Bąk, Jolanta Cybulka


We consider the tool supporting the creation of a knowledge base (KB). It uses as the input elements: a database, a referential ontology and the expert knowledge. We reveal the ontology from a database schema and we specify connections between database attributes by means of the ontological relations, forming the primary KB. It is then incrementally extended by the results of executed queries.
