Abstract: Description Logics Emerge from Ivory Towers

Description logic (DL) has existed as a field for a few decades yet only somewhat recently has appeared to transform from an area of academic interest to an area of broad interest. This paper provides a brief historical perspective of description logic developments that have impacted DL usability to include communities beyond universities and research labs. This paper provides one perspective on this evolution.
