Generating Comprehensible Explanations in Description Logic
Paper in proceeding, 2014

We propose a method for generating comprehensible explanations in description logic. Such explanations could be of potential use for e.g. engineers, doctors, and users of the semantic web. Users commonly need to understand why a logical statement follows from a set of hypotheses. Then, automatically generated explanations that are easily understandable could be of help. A proof system for description logic that can be used for generating comprehensible explanations is proposed. Similar systems have been proposed for propositional logic [30] and first-order logic [28].
