Automatic ontology building is a vital issue in many fields where they are currently built manually. This paper presents a user-centred methodology for ontology construction based on the use of Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing. In our approach, the user selects a corpus of texts and sketches a preliminary ontology (or selects an existing one) for a domain with a preliminary vocabulary associated to the elements in the ontology (lexicalisations). Examples of sentences involving… Expand
Ontology population: Approaches and design aspects
TLDR
The different approaches and techniques adopted to carry out the task of ontology population are explained and the possible choices of the design aspects and the related issues are identified and analysed using a set of representative ontological population systems. Expand
Semi-automatic Ontology Construction based on Patterns
TLDR
Results show that it is possible to improve the results of typical existing ontology learning methods by selecting and reusing patterns, and this thesis introduces a typology of patterns, a general framework of pattern-based semi-automatic ontology construction called OntoCase, and specific methods to solve some specific tasks within this framework. Expand
Ontology Population and Enrichment: State of the Art
TLDR
This chapter presents a survey of the most relevant methods, techniques and tools used for the task of ontology learning, explaining how BOEMIE addresses problems observed in existing systems and contributes to issues that are not frequently considered by existing approaches. Expand
A Study on Automated Relation Labelling in Ontology Learning
TLDR
A technique for extraction of lexical items that may give cue in assigning semantic labels to otherwise ‘anonymous’ non-taxonomic relations is proposed and implemented as extension to the existing Text-to-Onto tool. Expand
Background and Foreground Knowledge in Dynamic Ontology Construction: Viewing Text as Knowledge Maintenance
TLDR
It is shown that a random selection of concept pairs from the Gene Ontology do not occur in a relevant corpus of texts from the journal Nature, and concluded that sources external to the domain corpus are necessary for the automatic construction of ontologies. Expand
Workshop on Human Language Technology for the Semantic Web and Web Services
The approach towards Semantic Web Information Extraction (IE) presented here is implemented in KIM – a platform for semantic indexing, annotation, and retrieval. It combines IE based on the matureExpand
A Methodology for Creating Ontologies for Engineering Design
TLDR
The main contribution of this research is the development of a methodology to allow researchers and industry to create ontologies for their particular purpose and to develop a thesaurus for the terms within the ontology. Expand
A Domain-Independent Approach to IE Rule Development
TLDR
This research is based on the hypothesis that, terms and Named Entities can together be considered as the basic semantic entities of textual information and can therefore be used as a basis for the conceptual representation of domain specific texts and the definition of what constitutes an information extraction template in linguistic terms. Expand
Machine Learning-Based Maintenance of Domain-Specific Application Ontologies
TLDR
This chapter tackles the problem of ontology maintenance as an ontology population problem of the evolving ontologies proposing an incremental ontology Population methodology that exploits machine learning techniques and is enforced with a bootstrapping technique in order to tackle large scale problems. Expand
Extracting knowledge from XML document repository: a semantic Web-based approach
TLDR
This paper demonstrates how an ontology can be used to extract knowledge from an exemplar XML repository of Shakespeare’s plays and implements an architecture for this ontology using de facto languages of the semantic Web including OWL and RuleML, thus preparing the ontology for use in data sharing.

Techniques for automated taxonomy building: towards ontologies for knowledge management
TLDR
The re-quirements for a system which automatically constructed taxonomies are considered, and it is argued that the majority of approaches are unsuitable for the job and should not be considered. Expand
Challenges in Information Extraction from Text for Knowledge Management
TLDR
Two main challenges for adaptivity in IE for KM are focused on, which in my opinion are paramount in the current scenario: automatic adaptation to different text types and human-centred issues in copying with real users. Expand
Adaptive Information Extraction from Text by Rule Induction and Generalisation
TLDR
The role of shallow NLP in rule induction is discussed, and the algorithm has a considerable success story and real world applications have been developed and licenses have been released to external companies for building other applications. Expand
OIL: An Ontology Infrastructure for the Semantic Web
TLDR
The authors present OIL, a proposal for a joint standard for specifying and exchanging ontologies, which is needed for knowledge sharing and reuse on the Semantic Web. Expand
Deriving concept hierarchies from text
TLDR
This paper presents a means of automatically deriving a hierarchical organization of concepts from a set of documents without use of training data or standard clustering techniques, using a type of co-occurrence known as subsumption. Expand
Extracting Semantic Relationships between Terms: Supervised vs. Unsupervised Methods
TLDR
A keyword-based model for textmining is described in Feldman and Dagan (1995) and the work suggests to use a wide range of KDD (KnowledgeDiscovery in Databases) operations on collections of textual documents, including association discovery among keywords within the documents. Expand
Knowledge acquisition for knowledge management: position paper
TLDR
A set of techniques to largely automate the process of KA, by using technologies based on Information Extraction, Information Retrieval and Natural Language Processing to reduce the introspection of knowledge engineers or the extended elicitations of knowledge from experts by extensive textual analysis. Expand
Is there content in empty heads?
TLDR
It is shown that hierarchies of this type can be automatically constructed, by using the semantic category codes and the subject codes of the Longman Dictionary of Contemporary English to disambiguate the genus terms in noun definitions. Expand
Automatic Acquisition of Hyponyms from Large Text Corpora
TLDR
A set of lexico-syntactic patterns that are easily recognizable, that occur frequently and across text genre boundaries, and that indisputably indicate the lexical relation of interest are identified. Expand
Learning Information Extraction Rules for Semi-Structured and Free Text
TLDR
WHISK is designed to handle text styles ranging from highly structured to free text, including text that is neither rigidly formatted nor composed of grammatical sentences, and can also handle extraction from free text such as news stories. Expand
