Aligning Ontologies and Evaluating Concept Similarities

Aligning Ontologies and Evaluating Concept Similarities
An innate characteristic of the development of ontologies is that they are often created by independent groups of expertise, which generates the necessity of merging and aligning ontologies covering overlapping domains. However, a central issue in the merging process is the evaluation of the differences between two ontologies, viz. the establishment of a similarity measure between their concepts. Many algorithms and tools have been proposed for merging of ontologies, but the majority of them disregard the structural properties of the source ontologies, focusing mostly on syntactic analysis. This article focuses on the alignment of ontologies through Formal Concept Analysis, a data analysis technique founded on lattice theory, and on the use of similarity measures to identify cross-ontology related concepts.
