Mining Knowledge from Textual Databases: An Approach using Ontology-based Context Vectors
This event took place on Monday 31 January 2005 at 12:30

The increase in research activities claim ways to discover patterns in order to understand the behavior of these activities as well as to manage the resources used to support them. In this paper we propose a semantic mining approach to knowledge discovery based on context vectors and ontology. The approach is illustrated using ontology and resumes from a Science & Technology database as inputs. The involved phases in the proposed model are described emphasizing preprocessing and pattern generation. The main contribution of this paper is the proposal of a semantic component toward data mining. Initial results show a suitable cluster generation in terms of number and quality. The approach produced better classification when comparing the generated clusters against a set of vectors representing knowledge areas.

We are also inviting top experts in AI and Knowledge Technologies to discuss major socio-technological topics with an audience that comprises both members of the Knowledge Media Institute, as well as the wider staff at The Open University. Differently from our seminar series, these events follow a Q&A format.
