Comparative Evaluations of a Hierarchical Categorization of Search Results based on a Granular View of Domain Ontologies

Silvia Calegari, Fabio Farina, Gabriella Pasi

Abstract

The aim of this paper is to evaluate the effectiveness of a categorization approach of search results based on the use of domain ontologies with respect to the application of standard single-label and multi-label classification algorithms. In particular, the approach in (Calegari et al., 2011) is considered, where the categorization process is performed thanks to the adoption of a taxonomy of information represented as a granular view of a domain ontology.
