Interactive Question Answering Approach of Semantics Interpretation
A poster presentation written by Khalid Latif, A Min Tjoa and Edgar Weippl. It was presented at the ESWC2007. It is about Semantics Interpretation, DOLCE, OntoWordNet, Question Answering and Ontology Reuse
Ontology integration, alignment, and reuse is the heart of Semantic Web vision. The alignment between two ontologies can be achieved easily provided both share the same axiomatic space. This in turn can be achieved by reusing constructs from foundational ontologies and standard domain thesauri. Although current breed of ontology development methodologies and tools have made a lot easier to build a new ontology, it is difficult to reuse concepts from existing ontologies. This is mainly because of ambiguities in semantics interpretation of concepts from foundational ontologies which are biased with philosophical aspirations, domain nuance, and design rationale being introduced at the time of its creation. In this paper we have introduced a novel methodology for sense disambiguation to help the human expert in semantics interpretation. It is a collaborative and interaction intensive question answering approach based on DOLCE aligned form of WordNet - OntoWordNet. The approach was successfully practiced for the ontology reuse during collaborative ontology building process and results are concluded here.
