SPARK: Adapting Keyword Query to Semantic Search

  title={SPARK: Adapting Keyword Query to Semantic Search},
  author={Qi Zhou and Chong Wang and Miao Xiong and Haofen Wang and Yong Yu},
Semantic search promises to provide more accurate result than present-day keyword search. However, progress with semantic search has been delayed due to the complexity of its query languages. In this paper, we explore a novel approach of adapting keywords to querying the semantic web: the approach automatically translates keyword queries into formal logic queries so that end users can use familiar keywords to perform semantic search. A prototype system named ‘SPARK’ has been implemented in… CONTINUE READING
