Smart Information Retrieval using Query Transformation based on Ontology and Semantic-Association

Ram Kumar, S. C. Sharma
2022 International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications  
This imprecise representation of the query hampers the effectiveness of the retrieval system. One method to solve this problem is to transform the original query into a more meaningful form.  ...  This paper proposes an ontologybased retrieval system that transforms initial user queries using domain ontologies and applies semantic association during the indexing process.  ...  The authors conclude that query transformation using ontology has a high impact on retrieval performance.  ...
