A relatedness analysis of government regulations using domain knowledge and structural organization

Gloria T. Lau, Kincho H. Law, Gio Wiederhold
2006 Information retrieval (Boston)  
The relatedness analysis makes use of not only traditional term match but also a combination of feature matches, and not only content comparison but also structural analysis.  ...  The complexity and diversity of government regulations make understanding and retrieval of regulations a non-trivial task.  ...  We will exploit different computational properties of regulations, such as available domain knowledge, the tree organization and the referential structure of provisions, to perform a comprehensive comparison  ...

Regulation Relatedness Map Creation Method with Latent Semantic Analysis

Mehmet Murat Huyut, Batuhan Kocaoğlu, Ünzile Meram
2022 Computers Materials & Continua  
We created a relatedness map of a banking regulation to a best practice.  ...  In order to have an objective and statistical relationships map, we propose a Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) based modal to generate a specific relatedness correlation map.  ...  Another way to map standards is to use a unified definition language and semantic analysis to find the relatedness of all the clauses, especially the ArchiMate unified markup language (UML) used in some  ...

Domain Knowledge Discovery Guided by Software Trace Links [article]

Jin L.C. Guo, Natawut Monaikul, Jane Cleland-Huang
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Knowledge of the domain terminology is necessary for performing many Software Engineering tasks such as impact analysis, compliance verification, and safety certification.  ...  The trace links which drive our mining process, define relationships between artifacts such as regulations and requirements and enable a guided search through high-yield combinations of domain terms.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS The work in this paper was partially funded by the US National Science Foundation Grant CCF:1319680.  ...

Towards a knowledge graph for open healthcare data

Kawtar YOUNSI DAHBI
2020 International Journal of Advanced Trends in Computer Science and Engineering  
In this, work we propose to construct the KG4OGD, a knowledge graph that drives the transformation of open government raw data to valuable knowledge.  ...  To support the construction of the KG4OGD, we propose a knowledge representation model for both OGD Metadata and content as a schema model for the KG4OGD.  ...  The KG4OGD will enable us to extract valuable knowledge related to the government data, infer new insights, and enable a large plethora of smart applications.  ...
