A Pattern-based Ontology Building Method for Ambient Environments

Wolfgang Maass & Sabine Janzen

abstract Ambient environments are characterized by an ever increasing amount of information that needs to be selected and organized in order to make correct assumptions about users, entities, etc. within a specific context. This issue can be addressed by using ontologies that meet the specific requirements of such environments. In this paper, we survey ontology engineering methods that represent an adequate approach to creating adequate ontologies. Because unprecedented, we introduce a Pattern-based Ontology Building Method for Ambient Environments (POnA) and exemplify this method through the development of a domain-specific ontology for cosmetic products within ambient shopping environments
