SEMANTICS-BASED SIMILARITY DECISIONS FOR ONTOLOGIES

Anne Yun-An Chen, Dennis McLeod

Abstract

Many data representation structures, such as web site categories and domain ontologies, have been established for semantic-based information search and retrieval on the web. These structures consist of concepts and their interrelationships. Approaches to determine the similarity in semantics among concepts in data representation structures have been developed in order to facilitate information retrieval and recommendation processes. Some approaches are only suitable for similarity computations in pure tree structures. Other approaches designed for the Directed Acyclic Graph structures yield high computational complexity for online similarity decisions. In order to provide efficient similarity computations for data representation structures, we propose a geometry-based solution. Similarity computations are based on geometric properties. The similarity model is based on the proposed geometry-based solution, and the online similarity computation is performed in a constant time.
