Abstract / Description

This paper presents an ontology-based approach to address poverty. Poverty has been one of the serious societal problems that the world is facing in recent times. The approach has been modeled in such a way that it can be used to solve any other wicked problem of the society as well including corruption, bad governance, traffic management, poor education and many others. The causes of the said problem were modeled at different level of granularity. The proposed model also incorporates various different ways of addressing poverty by addressing possible causes of poverty. The presented scheme of using an ontology to address the wicked problem has the inferencing capability also to infer the indirect causes of poverty.
