Automated Mapping of Web Services via the OpenKnowledge System

Fiona McNeill

The OpenKnowledge system supports a peer-to-peer network and is designed to allow predefined workflows - or Interaction Models (IMs) - to be shared across the network. These IMs allow peers with no previous knowledge of one another to interact successfully by taking on a role in the interaction. Since these peers are likely to have different ontologies, mapping is performed to allow them to successfully interpret their role in terms of their own ontology.

In this talk, I will introduce the OpenKnowledge system and explain our ideas as to how translation of WSDL into the OpenKnowledge system can allow web services to take advantage of the infrastructure this provides, particular the mapping ability. Web services can thereby be called automatically without labourious human intervention.
