This lesson looks at the different flavors of OWL, each of which is a distinct subset of the full OWL standard. Some are simpler and/or much more computationally efficient for reasoning than the full standard. Fortunately, regardless of which flavor one works with, they are all OWL (e.g. any ontology written using any subset of OWL features is still valid OWL and should be consumable by most OWL tools). This lesson also discusses when you might want to use one or the other.
