Design information retrieval: a thesauri-based approach for reuse of informal design information

Maria C. Yang, William H. Wood, Mark R. Cutkosky
2005 Engineering with Computers  
Several approaches to building thesauri are examined, including manual and automated methods.  ...  This manual method for indexing information is adapted to meet the evolutionary nature of design through the development of thesauri for design context.  ...  Acknowledgements Portions of this work were performed under a DARPA DSO-sponsored project, administered with the assistance of ONR, under the RaDEO program and is partially funded by Navy contract N00014096  ...

Thesauri and ontologies in digital libraries

Dagobert Soergel
2005 Proceedings of the 5th ACM/IEEE-CS joint conference on Digital libraries - JCDL '05  
Participate should be able to identify and evaluate thesauri suitable for a specific situation defined by a user community an by the collection of a digital library.  ...  Course objectives Participants should appreciate the complexity of subject access and understand the problems that a thesaurus can help solve.  ...  First of all, quite a bit of disambiguation may occur "naturally", in that a given term may assume only one of its meanings in the specific domain of the collection and therefore in the queries.  ...

Terminological knowledge structure for intermediary expert systems

Raya Fidel, Efthimis N. Efthimiadis
1995 Information Processing & Management  
To develop such knowledge structure, future research should focus on terminological attributes, word and phrase disambiguation, automated text processing, and the role of thesauri and classification schemes  ...  Switching vocabularies or languages could provide a meta-schema and facilitate the interoperability of databases in similar subject domains.  ...  We also thank Susanne Humphrey, Philip Smith, and Dagobert Soergel for their useful comments on an earlier version.  ...

First Steps towards Building a Medical Lexicon for Spanish with Linguistic and Semantic Information

Leonardo Campillos-Llanos
2019 Proceedings of the 18th BioNLP Workshop and Shared Task  
We greatly thank the institutions who gave permission to include their data in MedLexSp, and also thank the anonymous reviewers for their valuable comments.  ...  Thesauri are essential for indexing and populating databases, domain-specific information retrieval, and standardized codification (Cimino, 1996) .  ...  Besides medical lexicons, domain-specific vocabularies were collected for Biology (Thompson et al., 2011) .  ...

Relational Semantics in Thesauri: Some Remarks at Theoretical and Practical Levels

Fulvio Mazzocchi, Melissa Tiberi, Barbara De Santis, Paolo Plini
2007 Knowledge organization  
Meaning of words can, therefore, change (at least partially) from one domain to the next: "the meanings of words-and, thus, words used to name subjects-are in part fixed and, in part, variable.  ...  The retrieval of information would, in fact, be facilitated if a subject field represented in the documents of a database had such documents indexed and searched by means of words used in accordance with  ...

Towards Expressive and User Friendly Interfaces for Digital Libraries Containing Heterogeneous Data

Maximilian Stempfhuber
2020 Zenodo  
The "library" aspect of collecting things and cataloguing them in a standardized format and with a standardized indexing language is no longer the primary concern here.  ...  As the user interface is the intermediate between the user's information needs and the digital library's complex inner structure, new ways of designing the user interface are needed to adapt to the growing  ...  Here, generic types of visualizations are needed which can be adapted to specific use cases and levels of complexity.  ...

The importance of theories of knowledge: Indexing and information retrieval as an example

2010 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
theories of indexing and information retrieval, as well as the use of quantitative and qualitative approaches in IS and the underlying theories of knowledge informing the field.  ...  Although it is formulated as a criticism of a specific paper, it should be seen as part of a general discussion of the philosophical foundation of IS and as a support to the emerging social paradigm in  ...  There are many other kinds of automated-assigned indexing made with or without the use of thesauri or other kinds of controlled vocabularies.  ...

A knowledge-based approach to information extraction for semantic interoperability in the archaeology domain.  ...  This paper is concerned with the broad area of automated subject metadata generation.  ...  This paper reveals the role of information extraction for purposes of semantic indexing, as opposed to automated subject classification, via ontology based approaches rather than traditional library classifications  ...

Benchmarking Ontologies: Bigger or Better?

Lixia Yao, Anna Divoli, Ilya Mayzus, James A. Evans, Andrey Rzhetsky, K. Bretonnel Cohen
2011 PLoS Computational Biology  
Moreover, dialects characteristic of distinct domains vary strikingly as many of the same words are used quite differently in medicine, news, and novels.  ...  We then test these metrics using (1) four of the most common medical ontologies with respect to a corpus of medical documents and (2) seven of the most popular English thesauri with respect to three corpora  ...  Acknowledgments We are grateful to David Blair, Bob Carpenter and three anonymous reviewers for insightful suggestions, and to David Blair for proposing idea of the probability-catching concept.  ...

2011 arXiv   pre-print
Intellectual transfers use cross-concordances between different classification schemes or thesauri. Section 3 describes the creation, storage and handling of such transfers.  ...  Section 2 describes a set of cascading deductive and heuristic extraction rules, which were developed in the project CARMEN for the domain of Social Sciences.  ...  In an automated preparation step, each term of the fact nomenclatures was augmented with the provided explanatory text fragments, some domain specific abbreviations were expanded and common terms and domain  ...
