Knowledge Transformations between Frame Systems and RDB Systems

Gennari, John H and Mork, Peter and Li, Hao (2005) Knowledge Transformations between Frame Systems and RDB Systems. In Proceedings, 3rd International Conference on Knowledge Capture (K-CAP’05), pages pp. 197-198, Banff, Alberta, Canada.

For decades, researchers in knowledge representation (KR) have argued for and against various choices in KR formalisms, such as Rules, Frames, Semantic nets, and Formal logic. In this paper, we present a set of transformations that can be used to move knowledge across two fundamentally different KR formalisms: Frame-based systems and Relational database systems (RDBs). We also describe partial implementations of these transformations for a specific pair of such systems: Protégé and the Postgres RDB system.
