Extending Datatype Restrictions in Fuzzy Description Logics

In Proceedings of the 9th International Conference on Intelligent Systems Design and Applications (ISDA-09).

Fuzzy Description Logics (DLs) are a family of logics which allow the representation of (and the reasoning within) structured knowledge affected by vagueness. Although a relatively important amount of work has been carried out in the last years, little attention has been given to the role of datatypes in fuzzy DLs. This paper presents a fuzzy DL with three kinds of extended datatype restrictions, together with the necessary rules to reason with them.
