A SEMANTIC WEB APPROACH TO ENRICH INFORMATION RETRIEVAL ANSWERS

R. Carolina Medina-Ramírez, Víctor M. Ramos R.

Abstract

In previous works, we have presented the advantages of using a domain ontology and annotations for information retrieval (Medina-Ram´ırez et al., 2002b) as well as the translation problems between languages with different expression semantic levels (Medina-Ram´ırez et al., 2002a). In this paper we focus on the view point of the end-user. In fact, we explore the impact and helpfulness of a domain ontology, semantic annotations relying on this ontology and semantic resource descriptions so as to enrich end-user answers extracted from an information retrieval system. A system that embodies this approach is presented. We argue that it is necessary to improve the format of end-user answer in order to share and re-use knowledge.
