A current major obstacle to the development of ontologies in support of the Semantic Web is the inability to handle very large ontologies. We propose a solution which consists in augmenting the functionality of a relational DBMS to include the reasoning mechanisms (implemented as stored procedures) that are the essence of ontology management. As a result, a single system is used to store, query, update, and reason about a very large ontology. The OntoMinD prototype we have developed shows very promising performances, according to our tests with the LUBM benchmark.

OntoMinD: Ontology Management in Databases was presented at this event.
