OWL Ontology

Ontology, or more specifically, the Web Ontology Language (OWL) is a formal representation of knowledge as a set of concepts within a domain, and the relationships between those concepts. OWL is important for data-centric development because it enables the explicit specification of complex relationships between data entities. By allowing for the creation of rich, machine-interpretable descriptions of data, OWL plays a vital role in semantic web technologies, enhancing data interoperability, reusability, and reasoning. This is crucial in scenarios where complex data relationships and data-driven decision-making are key, such as in artificial intelligence, knowledge management, and Linked Data projects.
