Identifying Problems and Solutions on Ontology Learning and Population from Text
Professor Rosario Girardi - Federal University of Maranhão, Brazil
This short course will focus on discussing the main problems and corresponding solutions for the automatic and/or semi-automatic acquisition of each one of the components of an ontology (classes, properties, taxonomic and non-taxonomic relationships, axioms and instances) from textual resources, through a common process for the incremental building of ontologies driven by the goals of a particular knowledge system. Applied techniques from the areas of Machine Learning, Natural Language Processing, Information Retrieval, Information Extraction and Ontology Reuse will be discussed and illustrated with application examples in the Legal domain.
