Towards Evaluating Interactive Ontology Matching Tools

Towards Evaluating Interactive Ontology Matching Tools

This video was recorded at 10th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC), Montpellier 2013. With a growing number of ontologies used in the semantic web, agents can fully make sense of different datasets only if correspondences between those ontologies are known. Ontology matching tools have been proposed to find such correspondences. While the current research focus is mainly on fully automatic matching tools, some approaches have been proposed that involve the user in the matching process. However, there are currently no benchmarks and test methods to compare such tools. In this paper, we introduce a number of quality measures for interactive ontology matching tools, and we discuss means to automatically run benchmark tests for such tools. To demonstrate how those evaluation can be designed, we show examples on assessing the quality of interactive matching tools which involve the user in matcher selection and matcher parametrization.
