A new Bossam on Feb. 5
A new Bossam release is planned on Feb. 5, 2007.
The new release will include better OWL DL reasoning supports:
- Enhanced coverage on classification based on boolean compositions of classes
- Enhanced coverage on classification based on nominals (
Also, a new rule construct is introduced: rule-generating rules (RGR). With RGR, it’s possible to assert a rule at the consequent as shown below.
rule r is
if causality(?cause, ?result)
assert if ?cause then ?result;
RGR will help representing more complex knowledge and optimizing knowledge structure!
Also on performance-side, the RETE core of Bossam is well optimized and it gives a lot better performance than before!
