Abstract
The significance of uncertainty representation has become
obvious in the Semantic Web community recently. This paper presents our research on uncertainty handling in automatically created ontologies. A new framework for uncertain information processing is proposed. The research is related to OLE (Ontology LEarning) - a project aimed at bottomup generation and merging of domain-specific ontologies. Formal systems that underlie the uncertainty representation are briefly introduced. We discuss the universal internal format of uncertain conceptual structures in OLE then and offer a utilisation example then. The
proposed format serves as a basis for empirical improvement of initial knowledge acquisition methods as well as for general explicit inference tasks.
