Evaluation of Instances Asset in a Topic Maps-Based Ontology

421

Published on

In connection with structuring and sharing of knowledge in a form of ontologies the question of their assets evaluation occurs. This short paper presents the methodology of asset evaluation of individual instances in ontology based on standard of Topic Maps. The evaluation comes out of weights assignment to instances and associations in ontology and total weight calculation for individual instance and its surroundings. Searching results can be ranked according to this total weight expressing information asset of individual instance.

Evaluation of Instances Asset in a Topic Maps-Based Ontology

  1. 1. Evaluation of Instances Asset in a Topic Maps Ontology Petra Haluzová [email_address] Department of Informatics and Telecommunications Faculty of Transportation Sciences Czech Technical University in Prague TMRA 2010
  2. 2. Information asset of instance (topic) <ul><li>Expresses the richness of topic description in the ontology </li></ul><ul><li>The richness of surrounding topics description are taken into account </li></ul><ul><li>Association types between topics are also considered </li></ul><ul><li>Example: Topic Type – dog </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1) Name: Barney </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>2) Colo u r: black </li></ul></ul>? Breed: dachshund Photo: http://... <ul><ul><li>Association s – owner, vaccination,… </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. Weights assignment: Partial weight of topic c i <ul><li>Partial weight of topic c = {1, 2,...} ;  c  N </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Expresses the richness of description </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>of each individual topic </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Is equal to the sum of attribute weights </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The topic name is an attribute as well </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Default setting: 1 for all attribute weights, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>user can change this setting </li></ul></ul>List of attributes and their weights: Article: 1 Audio recording: 2 Bibliography: 2 Biographical article: 1 Date of birth: 1 Date of death: 1 Description: 1 Editorial guidelines: 1 Gallery: 1 Illustration: 1 Libretto: 2 Note: 1 Poster: 1 Premiere date:1 Sound clip: 2 Synopsis: 1 Video recording: 2 Web page: 2 Web site: 3
  4. 4. Weights assignment: Total topic weight w i <ul><li>Total topic weight w i for each individual topic i </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The partial weight c is calculated for each individual topic in the ontology </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The next part of the total topic weight w is derived from associations with surrounding topics j </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Coefficient k influences the importance of surrounding topics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>After calculating the total topic weights the results are normalized to interval (0,1  </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. Weights assignment: Weights of associations categories a ij <ul><li>Association weight a   0, 1  ; a  R </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Three categories: hierarchical, defining, contextual </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Weights setting of all categories at 1 advantages topic s which have great number of associations (independently of association types) </li></ul></ul>k = 0 . 2 weights of all attributes: 1
  6. 6. Weights assignment: Influence of coefficient k <ul><li>Coefficient k   0, 1  ; k  R </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Influences the importance of partial weights of surrounding topics </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The less coefficient value the greater importance is assigned to the central topic </li></ul></ul>weights of all attributes: 1 weights of all categories: 1 . 0
  7. 7. Parameters setting Results <ul><li>Better results are achieved with more specific setting of attribute weights and category weights than with default setting </li></ul><ul><li>Example: </li></ul>Weights of attributes in the list above. k = 0 . 2 Weights of categories of associations: defining – 1 . 0 hierarchical – 0 . 5 contextual – 0 . 2
  8. 8. Summary (repetition is the mother of wisdom) <ul><li>The user assigns the weights to all attributes which can occur within a topic </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Default: weight of all attributes 1 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The user divides associations into three categories and assigns the weights to these categories </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Default: weight of all associations 1 </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The total topic weight will be calculated for each individual topic in the ontology </li></ul><ul><li>These total weights values will be normalized in accordance with the maximal value </li></ul>
  9. 9. Application <ul><li>Information asset points to potential usefulness of information contained in the topic for the user </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The user’s insight is taken into consideration, if desired </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Topics found during a search in the ontology may be ranked according to their information asset </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The total topic weights are calculated just once </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The quantification of information asset is used as measure and statistical data </li></ul>
