Describing semantic web applications through relations between data nodes

Semantic Web Applications can only be understood if the complex data flows they implement are clearly described. However, application developers have very little support at the moment for documenting such data flows and their rationale, in an appropriately formal and conceptual manner. In this paper, we propose to apply a knowledge engineering approach to the formal description of Semantic Web Applications. Following an ontology building methodology based on the analysis of several existing...read more

Unsupervised data linking using a genetic algorithm

As commonly accepted identifiers for data instances in semantic datasets (such as ISBN codes or DOI identifiers) are often not available, discovering links between overlapping datasets on the Web is generally realised through the use of fuzzy similarity measures. Configuring such measures, i.e. deciding which similarity function to apply to which data properties with which parameters, is often a non-trivial task that depends on the domain, ontological schemas, and formatting conventions in...read more

Relation Extraction for Semantic Intranet Annotations

We present an approach for ontology driven extraction of relations from texts aimed mainly to produce enriched semantic annotations for the Semantic Web. The approach exploits linguistic and empirical strategies, by means of a pipeline method involving processes such as a parser, part-of-speech tagger, named entity recognition system, and pattern-based classification, and resources including ontology, knowledge and lexical databases. A preliminary evaluation with 25 sentences showed that the...read more

SemSearch: A Search Engine for the Semantic Web

Semantic search promises to produce precise answers to user queries by taking advantage of the availability of explicit semantics of information in the context of the semantic web. Existing tools have been primarily designed to enhance the performance of traditional search technologies but with little support for naive users, i.e., ordinary end users who are not necessarily familiar with domain specific semantic data, ontologies, or SQL-like query languages.

An Ontological Formalization of the Planning Task

In this report we propose a generic task ontology, which formalizes the space of planning problems. Although planning is one of the oldest researched areas in Artificial Intelligence and attempts have been made in the past at developing task ontologies for planning, these formalizations suffer from serious limitations: they do not exhibit the required level of formalization and precision and they usually fail to include some of the key concepts required for specifying planning problems.

Experiences of Two Task Driven User Studies of Hypermedia Information Systems

We present two small scale user studies of hypermedia information systems: a hypermedia discourse system designed as an environment for researchers to summarize and share key ideas from research papers as a claim network, and a web browser plug-in which annotates terms related to a selected ontology on the fly. The first study investigated whether a claim network created by one user could help others learn about a domain. The second study investigated whether information extraction techniques...read more

Ontology Mapping with domain specific agents in the AQUA Question Answering system

This paper describes a domain specific multi-agent ontology-mapping solution in the AQUA query answering system. In order to incorporate uncertainty inherent to the mapping process, the system uses the Dempster-Shafer model for dealing with incomplete and uncertain information produced during the mapping. A novel approach is presented how specialized agents with partial local knowledge of the particular domain achieve ontology mapping without creating global or reference ontology. Our approach...read more

An Ontology-Driven Similarity Algorithm

This paper presents our similarity algorithm between relations in a user query written in FOL (first order logic) and ontological relations.

Semantic Annotation Support in the Absence of Consensus

We are interested in the annotation of knowledge which does not necessarily require a consensus. Scholarly debate is an example of such a category of knowledge where disagreement and contest are widespread and desirable, and unlike many Semantic Web approaches, we are interested in the capture and the compilation of these conflicting viewpoints and perspectives. The Scholarly Ontologies project provides the underlying formalism to represent this meta-knowledge, and we will look at ways to...read more
