Language and Domain Aware Lightweight Ontology Matching

Gabor Bella, Fausto Giunchiglia, Fiona McNeill
2017 Social Science Research Network  
State-of-the-art approaches, however, tend to make implicit assumptions about the language used in labels (usually English) and are either domain-agnostic or are built for a specific domain.  ...  The method is implemented in NuSM, the language and domain aware evolution of the SMATCH semantic matcher, and is evaluated against a translation-based approach.  ...  Dark bars: NuSM (cross-lingual matcher). Light bars: GoogleSM (English-only SMATCH using Google Translate).  ...

2018 arXiv   pre-print
We tested our method, using Wikipedia as our ontology, on the most commonly used test collections in cross-lingual text categorization, and found that it outperforms existing methods.  ...  In this work, we present a novel approach that solves the general cross-lingual text categorization problem. Our method generates, for each training document, a set of language-independent features.  ...  We also learn the mapping functions from a comparable corpus (Wikipedia itself) using a method based on Explicit Semantic Analysis (Gabrilovich and Markovitch 2009) .  ...
