Dynamic Ontology Refinement

Fiona McNeill

In any dynamic and complex domain, parts of an agent's original ontology may be incorrect, obsolete or missing and hence require updating. We have been investigating how ontology refinement can be used in cases where an agent executing plans encounters plan failure, using this
failure and communication with external agents to guide the refinement process. We discuss our work so far, with particular emphasis on our
preliminary ideas about agent communication.
