Vitro currently has a reasoning layer that writes inferences into a persisted graph. Some triple stores have reasoning built in.
There is a project that demonstrates inferencing in Fuseki (the Jena SPARQL server)
Is it possible to move all of the reasoning, and the knowledge of the VIVO-ISF ontology, to a SPARQL server.
Being able to move reasoning into an underlying SPARQL server potentially opens up routes to simplify the architecture of Vitro/VIVO. Whilst there are commercial stores - many offering a base level for free - it would be good to prove that we can do this on at least one open source, completely free platform.
- Demonstrate the level of reasoning (inverse properties, superclasses, mostSpecificType) that is present in Vitro can be implemented inside Fuseki
