INTEGRATING SOCIAL WEB WITH SEMANTIC WEB - Ontology Learning and Ontology Evolution from Folksonomies

Ademir Roberto Freddo, Cesar Augusto Tacla

Abstract

In this paper, we present an approach for integrating Social Web with Semantic Web by combining the easiness of annotation of resources in the Social Web and the expressiveness of ontologies to describe the resources in the Semantic Web. Our approach combines ontology learning and ontology evolution techniques to provide an integrated Web. Besides, we show how ontology alignment can be used to enrich ontologies in this context.
