Three RIF Working Drafts: Basic Logic Dialect, RDF and OWL Compatibility, and Core Design (Placeholder)

Author(s) and publish date


The Rule Interchange Format Working Group has published three documents: RIF Basic Logic Dialect , RIF RDF and OWL Compatibility, and RIF Core Design - Placeholder; the first two are First Public Working Drafts. Basic Logic Dialect specifies a basic format that allows logic rules to be exchanged between rule-based systems. Rules interchanged using the Rule Interchange Format RIF may depend on or be used in combination with RDF data and/or RDF Schema or OWL data models. RIF RDF and OWL Compatibility specifies compatibility of RIF with the Semantic Web languages RDF and RDFS; in the future the document will address OWL as well. Finally, the Placeholder document resets expectations about the core RIF design. The Working Group has decided that that the design previously published as RIF Core is better considered as the basis for Logic Rules, rather than all kinds of rules. In the future, a new Core may be published, but for now, interested parties should refer to the Basic Logic Dialect. Learn more about the Semantic Web Activity.
