CompositeMatch: detecting n-ary matches in ontology alignment
October 25, 2009
The field of ontology alignment still contains numerous unresolved problems, one of which is the accurate identification of composite matches. In this work, we present a context-sensitive ontology alignment algorithm, CompositeMatch, that identifies these matches, along with the typical one-to-one matches, by looking more broadly at the information that a concept's relationships confer. We show that our algorithm can identify composite matches with greater confidence than current tools.
