Hi Norman,

 

I am glad to see your post. Your work is relevant to this group and also
to the RuleML mailing list:

 

http://mail.ruleml.org/mailman/listinfo/ruleml-all

 

This is also a very good contribution as a use case given the importance
of privacy issues.

Subject: CMU's ROWL (Rule Language in OWL and Transformation Engine for
JESS)

 


Weve been following the ongoing discussion about OWL Rules/SWRL. As a
contribution to the discussion, we thought we would make our own work in
this area available to others. This includes an OWL ontology to specify
rules and a stylesheet to transform the rules into CLIPS format. Rules
can be expressed as Horn clauses.

We found this rule ontology to be expressive enough to support a broad
range of user preferences (including complex privacy/confidentiality
preferences) in the context of our pervasive computing work (MyCampus
project). 
The syntax also has the merit to be fairly concise.You can access the
ontology and stylesheets at
<http://mycampus.sadehlab.cs.cmu.edu/public_pages/ROWL/ROWL.html> along
with some documentation.

Comments are welcome.

Norman Sadeh & Fabien Gandon
