THE SOCIAL ONTOLOGY BUILDING AND EVOLUTION (SOBE) PLATFORM

Abstract

In this paper, the Social Ontology Building and Evolution (SOBE) method and the corresponding software platform for cooperative ontology building in the context of a cluster of enterprises is presented. The SOBE is characterized by three main aspects: (i) automatic knowledge extraction from unstructured documents; (ii) social validation, involving a community of domain experts; (iii) a step-wise approach which goes through five main steps which produce incremental results towards the construction of a domain ontology.
