Large-scale reasoning with (semantic) data

Abstract

In this paper, we discuss scalable methods for nonmonotonic rule-based reasoning over Semantic Web Data, using MapReduce. This work is motivated by the recent unparalleled explosion of available data coming from the Web, sensor readings, databases, ontologies and more. Such datasets could benefit from the introduction of rule sets encoding commonly accepted rules or facts, application or domain specific rules, commonsense knowledge etc. This raises the question of whether, how, and to what extent knowledge representation methods are capable of handling huge amounts of data for these applications. Our results indicate that our method shows good scalability properties and is able to handle a benchmark dataset of 1 billion triples, bringing it on par with state-of-the-art methods for monotonic reasoning on the semantic web.
