Abstract

Abstract This paper describes a novel approach for obtaining semantic interoperability in a bottom–up, semi-automatic manner without relying on pre-existing, global semantic models. We assume that large amounts of data exist that have been organized and annotated according to local schemas. Seeing semantics as a form of agreement, our approach enables the participating data sources to incrementally develop global agreements in an evolutionary and completely decentralized process that solely relies on pair-wise, local interactions.
