Automatic Ontology Alignment Disambiguation based on Ontological Structural Dimension

Alexandre Gouveia, Nuno Silva, João Rocha

Abstract

Data transformation between repositories (data migration) demands great quality of ontology alignments, and as such ambiguous correspondences must be identified and corrected beforehand. In this paper we address the analysis and systematization of the ontology alignment disambiguation process, proposing the characterization of the ontology matching scenarios through ten dimensions. The characterization of the disambiguation scenarios according to the disambiguation solutions promotes the correct automatic adoption of the disambiguation actions. In this paper we focus on identifying and adopting structural resolution of ambiguities.
