Automated Construction Chinese Domain Ontology from Wikipedia
Wikipedia (Wiki) is a collaborative on-line encyclopedia, where Web users are able to share their knowledge about a certain topic. How to make use of the rich knowledge in the Wiki is a big challenge. In this paper authors propose a method to construct domain ontology from the Chinese Wiki automatically. The main idea in this paper is based on the entry segmenting and feature text (FT) extracting, where authors segment the name of entries and establish the concept hierarchy firstly. Secondly, authors extract the FTs from the descriptions of entries to eliminate the redundant information. Finally authors calculate the similarity between pairs of FTs to revise the concept hierarchy and gain non-taxonomy relations between concepts. The primary experiment indicates that method is useful for Chinese domain ontology construction.
