Abstract

In the core of semantic Web, ontology works as the backbone for any semantic applications and technology. Maintaining ontologies is a major challenge for ontology researchers. Ontology maintenance process includes many tasks starting from combining smaller ones till versioning of the ontology. There are three different approaches to maintain ontologies: manual, semi-automatic and fully automatic approaches. Using an agent to maintain the ontology is a new emerging fully automatic approach where the ontology maintenance is done in a distributed manner. This work is part of a project where we are developing a framework for semantic manipulation of health and nutrition information. In this paper, we present an automatic ontology maintenance system using multi-agent based approach for multilingual ontologies related to food and health domains. The paper also highlights the challenges and complexities that may occur in multi-agent based systems which are being utilized for the purpose of maintenance of multilingual ontologies.
