Towards Ontology Exploration based on Path Structure Richness

Ondřej Zamazal

Abstract

This paper presents an approach of path structure richness based ontology exploration. We focus on global richness as a way of characterizing ontology path richness in addition to using local richness to locate typical rich path structures for a given ontology. Ontology exploration is performed by extracting the shortest paths as a simplified ontology excerpt or summary. Proposed path structure richness metrics are based on shortest paths, their relationship diversity and their occurrences. We describe our general motivation, basic concepts, preliminary experimentation and future work for ontology exploration based on path structure richness.
