Fuzzy extension of Description Logics (DLs) allows the formal representation and handling of fuzzy knowledge. In this paper, we consider fuzzy-EL+, which is a fuzzy extension of EL+. We first present revised completion rules for fuzzy-EL+ that can be handled by MapReduce programs. We then propose an algorithm for scale reasoning with fuzzy-EL+ ontologies based on MapReduce.
