A Hybrid Approach to Learn Description Logic Ontology from Texts

Yue Ma, Alifah Syamsiyah
2014 International Semantic Web Conference  
Based on this approach, the present work aims to develop a system that takes biomedical texts as input and outputs the corresponding EL++ concept definitions.  ...  Moreover, the system allows users to trace textual causes for a generated definition, and also give feedback (i.e. correction of the definition) to the system to retrain its inner model, a mechanism for  ...  It extends the formal definition candidates learned by the Snomed-supervised relation extraction process [4, 3] with linguistic patterns to give a finer-grained translation of the learned candidates.  ...

2014 PLoS ONE  
Our previous research has investigated the construction of a miR ontology, named Ontology for MIcroRNA Target Prediction (OMIT), the very first of its kind that formally encodes miR domain knowledge.  ...  Although it is unavoidable to have a manual component contributed by domain experts when building ontologies, many challenges have been identified for a completely manual development process.  ...  Leyue Wang for their help in the project.  ...
