A view of OWL from the field: Use cases and experiences


In this paper, we describe our experiences with Semantic Web applications from the domain of life sciences, text mining and software engineering. In these domains, the state-of-the-art is limited to the use of simple taxonomies. This is partly because a sufficient set of use cases has not yet been developed to demonstrate the value of using more expressive languages (such as OWL) to add value in these domains. We are starting to catalog a set of such use cases, and we describe three concrete use cases in this paper.
