Relevance assessment of topic ontology

Zhou, Xujuan and Li, Yuefeng and Xu, Yue and Lau, Raymond (2006) Relevance assessment of topic ontology. In: 4th International Conference on Active Media Technology (AMT 2006), 7-9 Jun, 2006, Brisbane, Australia.


In traditional Information Retrieval (IR), user profiles are often represented by keyword/concepts space vectors or by some predefined categories. Unfortunately, this data is often inadequately or incompletely interpreted. Ontology-based user profile is another newer approach. This method is able to provide richer semantic information to facilitate information retrieval processes. It has become an important means for semantic-based information search and retrieval. Some ontology-based user profile models have been developed over the past few years. With the increasing usage of this method, it raises the issues of effective relevance measurement for the evaluation of ontologies. In practice, it is crucial to find a good relevance assessment algorithm for measuring the quality of ontologies. To represent user profile by relevant topic ontology, this paper presents a new method capable of measuring the user profile more objectively and hence has great potential to enhance the IR processes.
