A system for principled matchmaking in an electronic marketplace


More and more resources are becoming available on the Web, and there is a growing need for infrastructures that, based on advertised descriptions, are able to semantically match demands with supplies.We formalize general properties a matchmaker should have, then we present a matchmaking facilitator, compliant with desired properties.The system embeds a NeoClassic reasoner, whose structural subsumption algorithm has been modified to allow match categorization into potential and partial, and ranking of matches within categories. Experiments carried out show the good correspondence between users and system rankings.
