Arabic-English Automatic Ontology Mapping Based on Machine Readable Dictionary - Presentation @ University of Birzeit

Faculty of Information Technology at Birzeit University is pleased to invite you to attend the lecture entitled:

Arabic-English Automatic Ontology Mapping Based on Machine Readable Dictionary

Presented by:
Dr. Mustafa Abu Salah
Senior Knowledge Management Specialist –

Ontologies are the backbone of the semantic web and allow software agents to interoperate effectively. An ontology is able to represent and to clarify concepts and inter-concept relationships and can be used as a framework to represent underlying domain concepts expressed in many different languages. One way to do this is by mapping Ontologies in different languages using an inter-lingual index. In this presentation I will present a new methodology for ontology mapping in different script human languages (Arabic/English). Alo I will identify the steps of extracting concepts on both ontologies and automatically mapping them based on Machine Readable Dictionary (MRD) and Word Sense Disambiguation (WSD) tools. This presentation also discusses a unique tool that automatically extracts unmapped concepts and uses MRD and WSD to match them and create semantic bridges between the ontologies.
