Evaluating Ontologies: Towards a Cognitive Measure of Quality

Jennifer Fang, Joerg Evermann
2007 2007 Eleventh International IEEE EDOC Conference Workshop  
In this paper, we present a method to test this assumption. Our method is based on principles of cognitive psychology and demonstrated using the BWW and SUMO upper-level ontologies.  ...  Recent work has evaluated business process modelling languages against upper-level ontologies on the assumption that these ontologies are adequate representations of the general process domain.  ...  In this paper, we present a new notion of quality of ontologies, a method to evaluate this new aspect of quality, and an evaluation of two ontologies with respect to this aspect of quality.  ...

Ontology Evaluation [chapter]

Denny Vrandečić
2009 Handbook on Ontologies  
Ontology evaluation is the task of measuring the quality of an ontology. It enables us to answer the following main question: How to assess the quality of an ontology for the Web?  ...  Evaluation methods are descriptions of procedures that assess a specific quality of an ontology.  ...  We investigate the benefits of unit testing applied to ontologies, especially their possibilities to facilitate regression tests, to provide a test framework that can grow incrementally during the maintenance  ...

Towards Evaluating Interactive Ontology Matching Tools [chapter]

Heiko Paulheim, Sven Hertling, Dominique Ritze
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we introduce a number of quality measures for interactive ontology matching tools, and we discuss means to automatically run benchmark tests for such tools.  ...  With a growing number of ontologies used in the semantic web, agents can fully make sense of different datasets only if correspondences between those ontologies are known.  ...  Furthermore, unlike the OAEI benchmarks that measure the quality of fully automatic ontology matching tools in terms of recall, precision, and F-measure, there are no commonly agreed upon quality measures  ...

Evaluation of research in biomedical ontologies

R. Hoehndorf, M. Dumontier, G. V. Gkoutos
2012 Briefings in Bioinformatics  
We propose that results in applied ontology must be evaluated within their domain of application, based on some ontology-based task within the domain, and discuss quantitative measures which would facilitate  ...  the objective evaluation and comparison of research results in applied ontology.  ...  The heterogeneity of ontology-based applications prevents the application of a single quality and evaluation criterion.  ...

Measures for Evaluation of Structure and Semantics of Ontologies Recently, the topic of ontologies has growing attention from the IT community.  ...  Various processes of ontology creation, integration, and deployment have been proposed. As a consequence there appeared an urgent need for evaluating the resulting ontologies in a quantitative way.  ...  From the point of view of the framework the most important descriptions are quality-related, among them we can distinguish measures and QOODs (Quality-Oriented Ontology Descriptions).  ...
