Imprecise Empirical Ontology Refinement - Application to Taxonomy Acquisition


The significance of uncertainty representation has become obvious in the Semantic Web community recently. This paper presents new results of our research on uncertainty incorporation into ontologies created automatically by means of Human Language Technologies. The research is related to OLE (Ontology LEarning)a – a project aimed at bottom-up generation and merging of ontologies. It utilises a proposal of expressive fuzzy knowledge representation framework called ANUIC (Adaptive Net of Universally Interrelated Concepts). We discuss our recent achievements in taxonomy acquisition and show how even simple application of the principles of ANUIC can improve the results of initial knowledge extraction methods. aThe project’s web page can be found at URL:
