Towards a Semantic Web Testbed for Collaborative Policy Development

Printer-friendly version

Abstract:

We aim to improve accountability of distributed data usage by creating tools to support collaborative online development of scenarios and policy infrastructure. This paper reports on our design and development of a simple adaptive semantic wiki-based testbed and describes its usage in privacy protection scenarios.

Principal Investigator: Deborah L. McGuinness
Description: The Inference Web is a Semantic Web based knowledge provenance infrastructure that supports interoperable explanations of sources, assumptions, learned information, and answers as an enabler for trust. Provenance - if users (humans and agents) are to use and integrate data from unknown, uncertain, or multiple sources, they need provenance metadata for evaluation Interoperability - more systems are using varied sources and multiple information manipulation engines, thus increasing interoperability requirements Explanation/Justification - if information has been manipulated (i.e., by sound deduction or by heuristic processes), information manipulation trace information should be available Trust - if some sources are more trustworthy than others, trust ratings are desired The Inference Web consists of two important components: Proof Markup Language (PML) Ontology - Semantic Web based representation for exchanging explanations including provenance information - annotating the sources of knowledge justification information - annotating the steps for deriving the conclusions or executing workflows trust information - annotating trustworthiness assertions about knowledge and sources IW Toolkit - Web-based and standalone tools that facilitate human users to browse, debug, explain, and abstract the knowledge encoded in PML.
