Full-text available
Computing the semantic similarity between terms (or short text expressions) that have the same meaning but which are not lexicographically similar is a key challenge in many computer related fields. The problem is that traditional approaches to semantic similarity measurement are not suitable for all situations, for example, many of them often fail...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In this work we present GOAL (Genetics for Ontology Align- ments) a new approach to compute the optimal ontology alignment func- tion for a given ontology input set. Although this problem could be solved by an exhaustive search when the number of similarity measures is low, our method,is expected to scale better for a high number,of measures. Our a...
Article
One of the most challenging problems in the semantic web field consists of computing the semantic similarity between different terms. The problem here is the lack of accurate domain-specific dictionaries, such as biomedical, financial or any other particular and dynamic field. In this article we propose a new approach which uses different existing...

Computing the semantic similarity between terms (or short text expressions) that have the same meaning but which are not lexicographically similar is an important challenge in the information integration field. The problem is that techniques for textual semantic similarity measurement often fail to deal with words not covered by synonym dictionarie...
Article
Full-text available
In this work, we present our experience when developing the Matching Framework (MaF), a framework for matching ontologies that allows users to configure their own ontology matching algorithms and it allows developers to perform research on new complex algorithms. MaF provides numerical results instead of logic results provided by other kinds of alg...
Chapter
This research work presents a new augmentation model for knowledge graphs (KGs) that increases the accuracy of knowledge graph question answering (KGQA) systems. In the current situation, large KGs can represent millions of facts. However, the many nuances of human language mean that the answer to a given question cannot be found, or it is not poss...
Article
The problem of ontology matching consists of finding the semantic correspondences between two ontologies that, although belonging to the same domain, have been developed separately. Ontology matching methods are of great importance today since they allow us to find the pivot points from which an automatic data integration process can be established...
Conference Paper
Up to this day the practical economical application of automated driving stays behind the high expectations that were raised by the great successes of Deep Learning. There is no doubt that fully autonomous (level 5 automated) driving in all weather and road conditions is a much more challenging problem then initially expected. Yet there is another...
Article
The automatic semantic similarity assessment field has attracted much attention due to its impact on multiple areas of study. In addition, it is also relevant that recent advances in neural computation have taken the solutions to a higher stage. However, some inherent problems persist. For example, large amounts of data are still needed to train so...

Our platform is intended to help pilot a smooth transition into a sustainable administration, help to...
Article
This work is a companion reproducibility paper that presents a framework to reproduce our previous experiments and results reported in Werneck et al. (2021). In that previous paper, we introduced a systematic mapping process of points-of-interest (POI) recommendation methods and provided a uniform evaluation methodology based on metrics covering di...
Article
Ontology meta-matching techniques have been consolidated as one of the best approaches to face the problem of discovering semantic relationships between knowledge models that belong to the same domain but have been developed independently. After more than a decade of research, the community has reached a stage of maturity characterized by increasin...

Many legal professionals think that the explosion of information about local, regional, national, and international legislation makes their practice more costly, time-consuming, and even error-prone. The two main reasons for this are that most legislation is usually unstructured, and the tremendous amount and pace with which laws are released cause...
Article
In recent times, we have seen an explosion in the number of new solutions to address the problem of semantic similarity. In this context, solutions of a neuronal nature seem to obtain the best results. However, there are some problems related to their low interpretability as well as the large number of resources needed for their training. In this w...

In recent times, the use of knowledge graphs has been massively adopted so that many of these graphs can even be found publicly on the Web. This makes that solutions for solving interoperability problems among them might be in high demand. The reason is that unifying these knowledge graphs could impact a wide range of industrial and academic discip...

Conference Paper
In recent times, the digitalization of urban areas has got considerable attention from the public. As a side effect, there has also been great interest in the digitalization of the rural world or the so-called Smart Villages. Smart Villages refer to the improvement of infrastructure management and planning to fight against depopulation and low popu...

One of the major problems in the manufacturing industry consists of the fact that, when manufacturing a product, many parts from different lots are supplied and mixed to a certain degree during an indeterminate number of stages, what makes it very difficult to trace each of these parts from its origin to its presence in a final product. In order to...
