A Software Tool for Visualizing, Managing and Eliciting SWRL Rules
SWRL rule are increasingly being used to represent knowledge on the Semantic Web. As these SWRL rule bases grows larger, managing the resulting complexity can become a challenge. Developers and end-users need rule management tools to tackle this complexity. We developed a rule management tool called Axiomé that aims to address this challenge. Axiomé support the paraphrasing of SWRL into simple English, the visualization of the structure both of individual rules and of rule bases, and supports the categorization of rules based on an analysis of their syntactic structure. It also supports the automatic generation of rule acquisition templates to facilitate rule elicitation. Axiomé is available as a plugin to the Protégé-OWL ontology development environment.
