Semantic measures are widely used today to estimate the strength of the semantic relationship between elements of various types: units of language (e.g. Semantic measures play an important role to compare such elements according to semantic proxies: texts and knowledge representations, which support their meaning or describe their nature. Semantic measures(More)
This paper presents the principles of ontology-supported and ontology-driven conceptual navigation. Conceptual navigation realizes the independence between resources and links to facilitate interoperability and reusability. An engine builds dynamic links, assembles resources under an argumentative scheme and allows optimization with a possible constraint,(More)
BACKGROUND Molecular sequence data have become the standard in modern day phylogenetics. In particular, several long-standing questions of mammalian evolutionary history have been recently resolved thanks to the use of molecular characters. Yet, most studies have focused on only a handful of standard markers. The availability of an ever increasing number of(More)
UNLABELLED The semantic measures library and toolkit are robust open-source and easy to use software solutions dedicated to semantic measures. They can be used for large-scale computations and analyses of semantic similarities between terms/concepts defined in terminologies and ontologies. The comparison of entities (e.g. genes) annotated by concepts is(More)
Finding the right semantic distance to be used for information research, classification or text clustering using Natural Language Processing is a problem studied in several domains of computer science. We focus on measurements that are real distances: i.e. that satisfy all the properties of a distance. This paper presents one ISA-distance measurement that(More)
Because of the increasing number of electronic resources, designing efficient tools to retrieve and exploit them is a major challenge. Some improvements have been offered by semantic Web technologies and applications based on domain ontologies. In life science, for instance, the Gene Ontology is widely exploited in genomic applications and the Medical(More)
The increasing size of indexed document sets that are digitally available emphasizes the crucial need for more suitable representation tools than traditional textual lists of results. Many efforts have been made to develop graphical tools capable of providing both overall and local views of a collection when focusing on a particular subset of documents.(More)
Social photos, which are taken during family events or parties, represent individuals or groups of people. We show in this paper how a Hasse diagram is an efficient visualization strategy for eliciting different groups and navigating through them. However, we do not limit this strategy to these traditional uses. Instead we show how it can also be used for(More)
