An Ontology to Semantically Declare and Describe Functions

by Ben De Meester, Anastasia Dimou, Ruben Verborgh, and Erik Mannens

Applications built on top of the Semantic Web are emerging as a novel solution in different areas, such as – among others – decision making and route planning. However, to connect results of these solutions – i.e., the semantically annotated data – with real-world applications, this semantic data needs to be connected to actionable events. A lot of work has been done (both semantically as non-semantically) to describe and define Web services, but there is still a gap on a more abstract level, i.e., describing interfaces independent of the technology used. In this paper, we present a data model, specification, and ontology to semantically declare and describe functions independently of the used technology. This way, we can declare and use actionable events in semantic applications, without restricting ourselves to programming language-dependent implementations. The ontology allows for extensions, and is proposed as a possible solution for semantic applications in various domains.
