Inconsistency Management

Goals and objectives

For several reasons, the growing use of knowledge from the Internet poses new challenges for information and communication technologies. First, it becomes increasingly difficult to guarantee homogenous data formats of knowledge sources. Second, the higher degree of interconnection yields to a loss of a global view of data and rather turning to a pairwise exchange of information. Third, the consistency of collective information can no longer be maintained. Multi-context systems provide a promising possibility to deal with the first two challenges in a formal way. However, for a practical realization, methods for adequately dealing with inconsistent information are missing. The main goal of this project is to develop such methods for multi-context systems.
