Cross Lingual Semantic Search by Improving Semantic Similarity and Relatedness Measures [chapter]

Nitish Aggarwal
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Although multilinguality of the web is a hurdle in information access, the rapid growth of the semantic web enables us to retrieve fine grained information across the language barrier.  ...  Secondly, we focus on improving the semantic similarity and relatedness measures, to overcome the semantic gap between the vocabulary in the knowledge base and the terms appearing in the query.  ...  People desire to access the multilingual information available on the web, while querying in their native language.  ...
