Real-world applications using fuzzy ontologies are increasing
in the last years, but the problem of fuzzy ontology learning has not received a lot of attention. While most of the previous approaches focus on the problem of learning fuzzy subclass axioms, we focus on learning fuzzy datatypes. In particular, we describe the Datil system, an implementation using unsupervised clustering algorithms to automatically obtain
fuzzy datatypes from di fferent input formats. We also illustrate the practical usefulness with an application: semantic lifestyle pro filing.
