We present a method and a tool, OntoLearn, aimed at the extraction of domain ontologies from Web sites, and more generally from documents shared among the members of virtual organizations. OntoLearn first extracts a domain terminology from available documents. Then, complex domain terms are semantically interpreted and arranged in a hierarchical fashion. Finally, a general-purpose ontology, WordNet, is trimmed and enriched with the detected domain concepts. The major novel aspect of this… Expand
A Domain Ontology Learning from Web Documents
TLDR
Experimental results show that the proposed approach can effectively construct a cancer domain ontology from unstructured text documents. Expand
Chapter I Contextual Hierarchy Driven Ontology Learning
Research in ontology learning had always separated between ontology building and evaluation tasks. Moreover, it had used for example a sentence, a syntactic structure or a set of words to establishExpand
Ontology Engineering and Knowledge Extraction for Cross-Lingual Retrieval
In this paper, we show that by integrating existing NLP techniques and Semantic Web tools in a novel way, we can provide a valuable contribution to the solution of the knowledge acquisitionExpand
A semantic framework for extracting taxonomic relations from text corpus
TLDR
A framework that combines Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD) and web approach to extract taxonomic relations from a domain-text corpus and outperforms the state of the art method in corpora having high WSD results is proposed. Expand
Learning non-taxonomic relationships from web documents for domain ontology construction
TLDR
An automatic and unsupervised methodology is presented that is able to discover domain-related verbs, extract non-taxonomically related concepts and label relationships, using the Web as corpus and presents encouraging results for several domains. Expand
A semantic role labelling-based framework for learning ontologies from Spanish documents
TLDR
A new ontology learning methodology based on semantic role labeling from digital Spanish documents is proposed, which makes it possible to represent multiple semantic relations specially taxonomic and partonomic ones in the standardized OWL 2.0. Expand
OntOAIr: a method to construct lightweight ontologies from document collections
TLDR
The OntOAIr method uses simplified representations of documents, an adaptation of the Frequent Itemset-based Hierarchical Clus- tering algorithm (FIHC), and ontological engineering techniques to construct lightweight ontologies from document collections. Expand
Learning to Build a Semantic Thesaurus from Free Text Corpora without External Help
TLDR
This chapter describes the knowledge-poor process of extracting ontological information in the economic domain mostly automatically from Modern Greek text using statistical filters and machine learning techniques. Expand
OntOAIr: A Method to Construct Lightweight Ontologies from Document Collections
TLDR
The OntOAIr method uses simplified representations of documents, an adaptation of the frequent item set-based hierarchical clustering algorithm (FIHC), and ontological engineering techniques to construct lightweight ontologies from document collections. Expand
GRAONTO: A graph-based approach for automatic construction of domain ontology
TLDR
A graph-based approach for automatic construction of domain ontology from domain corpus, named GRAONTO, and a method for adaptive adjustment of concepts and relations with respect to its practical effectiveness is conceived. Expand

Enriching very large ontologies using the WWW
TLDR
The overall goal is to overcome two shortcomings of WordNet: the lack of topical links among concepts, and the proliferation of senses, which are improved when the hierarchical clusters are used. Expand
Semi-Automatic Engineering of Ontologies from Text
TLDR
This work presents a general architecture for discovering conceptual structures and engineering ontologies, and proposes a new approach to extend current approaches, who mostly focus on the semi-automatic acquisition of taxonomies, by the discovery of non-taxonomic conceptual relations. Expand
Learning domain ontologies for semantic Web service descriptions
TLDR
This paper developed a framework for (semi-)automatic ontology learning from textual sources attached to Web services that exploits the fact that these sources are expressed in a specific sublanguage, making them amenable to automatic analysis. Expand
Structural semantic interconnections: a knowledge-based approach to word sense disambiguation
  • R. Navigli, P. Velardi
  • Computer Science, Medicine
  • IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
  • 2005
TLDR
Structural semantic interconnections (SSI) is presented, which creates structural specifications of the possible senses for each word in a context and selects the best hypothesis according to a grammar G, describing relations between sense specifications. Expand
Ontology Learning from Text
TLDR
A general architecture for discovering conceptual structures and engineering ontologies from text and a new approach for discovering non-taxonomic conceptual relations from text are presented. Expand
A symbolic approach to automatic multiword term structuring
TLDR
This paper explores how this three-level term structuring brings to light the knowledge structures from a corpus of genomics and compares the mapping of the domain topics against a hand-built ontology (the GENIA ontology) and ways of integrating the results into a Q-A system are discussed. Expand
Ontology Learning and Its Application to Automated Terminology Translation
TLDR
The OntoLearn system is an infrastructure for automated ontology learning from domain text that uses natural language processing and machine learning techniques, and is part of a more general ontology engineering architecture. Expand
An analysis of ontology-based query expansion strategies
TLDR
It is shown that expanding with synonyms or hyperonyms has a limited effect on web information retrieval performance, while other types of semantic information derivable from an ontology are much more effective at improving search results. Expand
