We present an approach to automatically assess such relevance.  ...  ., in terms of consistency and impact), their relevance is usually left to the user to assess. Relevance in this context is a notion of how well the statement fits in the target ontology.  ...  Based on the intuition that "relevance is not just an all-ornone matter but a matter of degree" [16] , we use a measure to assess the overall relevance of each statement.  ...

Dimensions of relevance

Erica Cosijn, Peter Ingwersen
2000 Information Processing & Management  
It is shown that motivational relevance, as a manifestation of relevance, should not be viewed as part of a linear, objective±subjective scale of relevances, but rather as an attribute of relevance.  ...  This paper models manifestations of relevance within a system of relevance attributes to show that the attributes function in dierent dimensions for the dierent manifestations of relevance.  ...  Although Saracevic does not explicitly mention it, it is interesting to note that the relevances are moving (in the order listed above) from a systems approach to a user-and socially-oriented approach.  ...
