A new Formal Concept Analysis based learning approach to Ontology building
Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) is a concept clustering approach that has been widely applied in ontology learning. In our work, we present an innovative approach to generating information context from a tentative domain specified scientific corpus and mapping a concept lattice to a formal ontology. The application of the proposed approach to Semantic Web search demonstrates this automatically constructed ontology can provide a semantic way to expand users' query context, which can complement a conventional search engine.
