Full Paper
Owl Monkey (OM) is an OWL auto-adaptive web application builder developed at Hydro-Québec. OM users are able to explore and build views on an OWL ontology and share those views without any prior knowledge of the technologies involved. Users can then do analytics over those views, use them to modify database content or export them. OM is highly generic and suitable for use with most OWL ontologies. Applications built with OM auto-adapt to modifications of the ontology and require no subsequent reprogramming. The overall effect is lower costs for application development and maintenance. Because of the genericity and auto-adaptability of this tool, this approach is a prime candidate for development of Industry 4.0 applications drawing on the Semantic Web of Things.
