Integrating Ontology into Semantic File Systems

Abstract : Semantic file systems enhance standard file systems with the ability of file searching based on file semantics. In this paper, we propose to integrate the support for ontologies into a file system to build efficient semantic file systems whose file semantics can be shared between users, applications and semantic file systems themselves. We call it ontology-based file system. We identify three existing types of file semantics: property-based, content-based and context-based semantics and adopt multi-ontology layer approach to enhance file semantic systems with four file semantic characteristics: file semantic representability, file semantic extensibility, file semantic standardization, and interoperability.
