EXTRACTION OF SEMANTIC RELATIONSHIPS STARTING FROM SIMILARITY MEASUREMENTS

Mohamed Frikha, Mohamed Mhiri, Faiez Gargouri

Abstract

Current applications’ modelling becomes increasingly complex. Indeed, it requires a hard work to study the particular domain in order to determine its main concepts and its relationships. The designers can have, in certain case many ambiguities concerning the comprehension of the domain to be modelled and the concepts to be used. In order to solve these ambiguities, we used ontology like a reference to give more semantics to conceptual schemas. For that, we used an approach for an ontology building to represent the pertinent concepts for a domain. In this paper, we propose a set of allowing determining the resemblance between the concepts of a conceptual schema and the ontology. Then, we propose an algorithm using these similarity measurements to determine the semantic relationships.
