Mimicking Web search engines for expert search

Rodrygo L.T. Santos, Craig Macdonald, Iadh Ounis
2011 Information Processing & Management  
In this article, we thoroughly investigate the usefulness of Web search engines (WSEs) for expert search.  ...  Experimental results show that our approach is effective for expert search, and can significantly improve an intranet-based expert search engine.  ...  Mimicking Web search engines for expert search In this section, we describe our approach to expert search, centred on mimicking WSEs' document rankings for a given expertise information need.  ...

Searching ontologies based on content

Harith Alani, Natasha F. Noy, Nigam Shah, Nigel Shadbolt, Mark A. Musen
2007 Proceedings of the 4th international conference on Knowledge capture - K-CAP '07  
When looking for ontologies on a particular topic (e.g., anatomy), we retrieve from the Web a collection of terms that represent the given domain (e.g., terms such as body, brain, skin, etc. for anatomy  ...  We use the results obtained from experts in the biomedical-ontology domain as the gold standard.  ...  We are especially grateful to Mathew Jones for implementing some of the code used in this system, and to Daniel Rubin in helping to collect results from experts.  ...

Unresolved Issues in Ontology Learning

Amal Zouaq, Dragan Gasevic, Marek Hatala
2011 Canadian Semantic Web Symposium  
This paper describes some of these challenges and sketches some ideas that might be beneficial for solving them.  ...  However, using search engines comes at the cost of a number of issues [11] generally ignored by the ontology community. For example, search engines do not stem or lemmatise the terms.  ...  Thus, all combinations of a given term should be submitted to the search engine to obtain an appropriate (if not entirely correct) web frequency.  ...
