Chapter
Part of the Semantic Web and Beyond book series (ADSW, volume 9)

Abstract

The previous chapters have focused on describing different strategies, processes, components and systems to improve the management of terminological ontologies. This chapter takes all those elements and applies them to improve information discovery and retrieval in an information infrastructure.

Keywords

Information Retrieval Fuzzy Cluster Query Term Query Expansion User Query 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
