CompositeMatch: detecting n-ary matches in ontology alignment
October 25, 2009
OM 2009: Proc. 4th Int. Workshop on Ontology Matching, 25 October 2009, pp. 250-251.
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.
