Ontology mapping using background knowledge

Zharko Aleksovski, Michel Klein
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Knowledge capture - K-CAP '05  
In this paper, we report on a method for aligning two lists of terms using structure-rich ontologies as background knowledge.  ...  The results of the method can be seen as suggested mapping candidates to users that perform an ontology alignment task. We applied the method on lists of medical terms, and we discuss the outcome.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We wish to thank Frank van Harmelen and Warner ten Kate for the useful feedback on the work.  ...

Knowledge transfer via advice taking

Lisa Torrey, Trevor Walker, Jude Shavlik, Richard Maclin
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Knowledge capture - K-CAP '05  
We present a framework for knowledge transfer from one reinforcement learning task to a related task through advicetaking mechanisms.  ...  We discuss the importance of transfer in complex domains such as RoboCup soccer, and show how to use automatically generated advice to perform transfer.  ...  Figure 1 : 1 Transferring knowledge using advice.

Extracting significant words from corpora for ontology extraction

Dileep Damle, Victoria Uren
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Knowledge capture - K-CAP '05  
We find that the ranking of extracted terms is insensitive to the choice of population model, but calculating frequencies relative to the burst size rather than the document length in words yields significantly  ...  We show a new method for term extraction from a domain relevant corpus using natural language processing for the purposes of semi-automatic ontology learning.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This work was carried out with support from the UK EPSRC and the Open University.  ...

Extracting knowledge from evaluative text

Giuseppe Carenini, Raymond T. Ng, Ed Zwart
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Knowledge capture - K-CAP '05  
By including user-specific prior knowledge of the evaluated entity, we turn the task of feature extraction into one of term similarity by mapping crude (learned) features into a user-defined taxonomy of  ...  Capturing knowledge from free-form evaluative texts about an entity is a challenging task. New techniques of feature extraction, polarity determination and strength evaluation have been proposed.  ...  To copy otherwise, to republish, to post on servers or to redistribute to lists, requires prior specific permission and/or a fee.

Ontology ranking based on the analysis of concept structures

Harith Alani, Christopher Brewster
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Knowledge capture - K-CAP '05  
In view of the need to provide tools to facilitate the reuse of existing knowledge structures such as ontologies, we present in this paper a system, AKTiveRank, for the ranking of ontologies.  ...  AKTiveRank uses as input the search terms provided by a knowledge engineer and, using the output of an ontology search engine, ranks the ontologies.  ...  K-CAP'05, October 2-5, 2005 , Banff, Alberta, Canada. the major advantages claimed of ontologies is the potential for the "reuse" of knowledge.  ...

Indirect anaphora resolution as semantic path search

James Fan, Ken Barker, Bruce Porter
2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Knowledge capture - K-CAP '05  
Anaphora occur commonly in natural language text, and resolving them is essential for capturing the knowledge encoded in text.  ...  Such anaphora need to be resolved properly in order to automatically capture the knowledge expressed in natural language.  ...  This research was supported in part by the National Science Foundation under CISE Research Infrastructure Grant EIA-0303609.  ...

2005 Proceedings of the 3rd international conference on Knowledge capture - K-CAP '05  
Most domain experts, on the other hand, consider assessing the numbers to be quite demanding. Qualitative probabilistic knowledge, however, is provided more easily by experts.  ...  A dedicated elicitation technique is designed to support the acquisition of the qualitative knowledge required for this purpose.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The research presented in this paper was partly supported by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO).  ...
