AN IMPROVED APPROACH FOR MEASURING SIMILARITY AMONG SEMANTIC WEB SERVICES

Pedro Bispo Santos, Leandro Krug Wives, José Palazzo Moreira de Oliveira

Abstract

The current paper presents an improved approach for an ontology-based semantic Web service similarity assessment algorithm. The algorithm uses information from IOPE (Inputs, Outputs, Preconditions, Effects) categories, searching for information about the concepts located in these categories, analyzing how they are related in an ontology taxonomy. Experiments performed using a data set containing 1083 OWL-S semantic web services show that the improved approach increases the algorithm precision, decreasing the number of false positives in the retrieved results, and still having a good recall. Furthermore, this work presents the parameters that were used to achieve better precision, recall and f-measure.
