Modularity in ontologies

Oliver Kutz, Joana Hois
2012 Applied Ontology  
Several approaches and techniques have been investigated and developed in detail to characterise and deal with modularity [1] .  ...  Again, such evaluations can be based on various (semantic or syntactic) criteria and employ a variety of statistical/heuristic or logical methods.  ...  We would also like to thank the article reviewers for their timely and thorough reviewing work: Mehul Bhatt, Faezeh Ensan,  ...

Task Oriented Evaluation of Module Extraction Techniques [chapter]

Ignazio Palmisano, Valentina Tamma, Terry Payne, Paul Doran
2009 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Ontology Modularization techniques identify coherent and often reusable regions within an ontology.  ...  To date, many techniques have been developed, but evaluation of the results of these techniques is sketchy and somewhat ad hoc.  ...  The paper is therefore structured as follows: Section 2 reviews different ontology modularization approaches and the different evaluation techniques.  ...

A Semantic-based Approach for Ontology Module Extraction

Amir Souissi, Walid Chainbi, Khaled Ghédira
2013 Proceedings of the International Conference on Knowledge Engineering and Ontology Development  
However, modularization methods that serve the reuse goal are often intended for humans to assist them in building new ontologies, rather than for applications that need only a relevant part of an existing  ...  Ontology modularization is crucial to support knowledge reuse on the ever increasing Semantic Web.  ...  However, since our method aims to produce a relevant module to a set of terms in order to use the module as an ontology, we can use evaluation criteria for determining the quality of the ontology to evaluate  ...

Toward a framework for ontology modularity

Zubeida C. Khan, C. Maria Keet
2015 Proceedings of the 2015 Annual Research Conference on South African Institute of Computer Scientists and Information Technologists - SAICSIT '15  
This is used to create a framework for ontology modularity, such that a user with a certain use case will know the type of modules needed, and therewith then also the appropriate technique to realise it  ...  This framework is then evaluated with three case studies, begin the QUDT, FMA, and OpenGalen ontologies.  ...  Evaluation metrics The evaluation of modularity techniques using metrics is an important process to measure the quality of ontology modules.  ...

Contextual Ontology Module Learning from Web Snippets and Past User Queries [chapter]

Nesrine Ben Mustapha, Marie-Aude Aufaure, Hajer Baazaoui Zghal, Henda Ben Ghezala
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we focus on modularization aspects for query reformulation in ontology-based question answering on the Web.  ...  The proposal has been evaluated on the ground of semantic cotopy measure of discovered ontology modules, relevance of search results.  ...  In section 4, we describe an evaluation on the ground of two criteria which are the comparison of discovered ontology modules with an upper-level ontology MESH and the impact of OM extraction on the relevance  ...

Evaluating Ontology Modules Using an Entropy Inspired Metric

Paul Doran, Valentina Tamma, Ignazio Palmisano, Terry R. Payne, Luigi Iannone
2008 2008 IEEE/WIC/ACM International Conference on Web Intelligence and Intelligent Agent Technology  
This creates a problem in evaluating the results of the different techniques. Ontology modularization techniques cannot solely be evaluated by examining their logical properties.  ...  The focus of ontology modularization to date has largely been on the creation of techniques to carry out ontology modularization.  ...  To overcome the limitations of this measure for evaluating ontologies, and adapt it to evaluate the result of modularization techniques, we propose a reformulation of the entropy measure of Calmet & Daemi  ...

Towards ABox Modularization of semi-expressive Description Logics

Sebastian Wandelt, Ralf Möller
2012 Applied Ontology  
For evaluation purposes, experiments on benchmark and real world knowledge bases are carried out.  ...  Modularization techniques are introduced and further refined in order to increase the granularity of modules.  ...  Preliminary Evaluation We have used two benchmark ontologies for evaluation of our modularization techniques: one synthetic benchmark introduced in [GPH05] and a real world multimedia annotation ontology  ...

Partitioning of ontologies driven by a structure-based approach

F. Amato, A. De Santo, V. Moscato, F. Persia, A. Picariello, S.R. Poccia
2015 Proceedings of the 2015 IEEE 9th International Conference on Semantic Computing (IEEE ICSC 2015)  
In particular, we leverage the topological properties of the ontology graph and exploit several techniques derived from Network Analysis to produce an efl'ective partitioning without considering any information  ...  In this paper, we propose a novel structure-based partitioning algorithm able to break a large ontology into different modules related to specific topics for the domain of interest.  ...  However, at the time being most ontologies are not structured in a modular way, and there fore modularization techniques able to identify and extract significant modules from existing ontologies are becoming  ...

CreaDO -- A Methodology to Create Domain Ontologies Using Parameter-Based Ontology Merging Techniques

Sabino Pariente Ju´rez, Hugo Estrada Esquivel, Alicia Martinez Rebollar, Mari Carmen Su´rez-Figueroa
2011 2011 10th Mexican International Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
When ontologies overlap, alignment techniques to merge such ontologies can be applied.  ...  CreaDO focuses on performing a parameter-based ontology merge that allows the creation of a domain ontology only with relevant information for the ontology purpose.  ...  The methodology uses techniques related to ontology reuse, such as ontology merging and ontology modularization techniques.  ...

A multi-ontology approach to annotate scientific documents based on a modularization technique

Priscilla Corrêa e Castro Gomes, Ana Maria de Carvalho Moura, Maria Cláudia Cavalcanti
2015 Journal of Biomedical Informatics  
Moreover, there are dozens of ontologies in the biomedical area, and they are usually big in terms of the number of concepts. It is in this context that ontology modularization can be useful.  ...  Based on these annotations a set of modules are extracted from a set of distinct ontologies, and are made available for the user, for complementary annotation.  ...  Differently, this work proposes an ontology modularization technique for the reuse of multiple ontologies in the annotation task.  ...
