Unlocking OWL Ontologies

Ontologies, even when presented in the more user-friendly Manchester OWL syntax (the one used in Protégé), can be impenetrable to the uninitiated. To address this problem, the SWAT project have developed a system (named OntoVerbal) that automatically translates an OWL ontology into natural language text. We would be most grateful if you would help us test the system by participating in a short (20 min) experiment that involves reading 10 such texts and translating them back into the corresponding OWL.

All participants will be entered into a prize draw for Amazon vouchers:

  • 1st Prize: £50 ($80)
  • 2nd Prize: £30 ($50)
  • 3rd Prize: £20 ($30)

Please circulate this request to anyone you think may be interested
