A STUDY ON ALIGNING DOCUMENTS USING THE CIRCLE OF INTEREST TECHNIQUE

Daniel Joseph, César A. Marín

Abstract

In this paper we present a study on applying a technique called Circle of Interest, along with Formal Concept Analysis and Rough Set Theory to semantically align documents such as those found in a business domain. Indeed, when companies try to engage in business it becomes crucial to keep the semantics when exchanging information usually known as a business document. Typical approaches are not practical or require a high cost to implement. In contrast, we consider the concepts and their relationships discovered within an exchanged business document to find automatically an alignment to a local interpretation known as a document type. We present experimental results on applying Formal Concept Analysis as the ontological representation of documents, the Circle of Interest for selecting the most relevant document types to choose from, and Rough Set Theory for discerning among them. The results on a set of business documents show the feasibility of our approach and its direct application to a business domain.
