Abstract: We discuss a new approach which uses inference fusion, i.e. the cooperative reasoning from distributed heterogeneous inference systems, in order to extend the scope of deductions based on description logics. More specifically, our approach integrates results from a description logics reasoner with results from a constraint solver. Inference fusion (i) processes heterogeneous input knowledge, generating suitable homogeneous input knowledge for each specialised reasoner; (ii) passes control to each reasoner, collecting their results and making them available to the other reasoner for further inferencing; (iii) combines the results of the two reasoners. We outline the main features of inference fusion by way of a small example.
