Title:Ontology Evolution in Physics (Thesis Proposal)
Authors: Michael Chan
Date:Dec 2008
Publication Type:Other Publication Status:Submitted
This thesis proposal outlines a research project on automated ontology evolution in the physics domain. We argue that intelligent agents must be able to manipulate their own ontologies autonomously in order to communicate effectively in an open, heterogeneous environment. Patterns of fault diagnosis and resolution in reasoning, based on human problem solving skills in physics, are compiled together to form plans executable by agents. The physics domain has the advantage that many faulty ontologies, and the reasoning required to mend them, have been well-documented.
