The Semantic Gap of Formalized Meaning
Recent work in Ontology learning and Text mining has mainly focused on engineering methods to solve practical problem. In this thesis, we investigate methods that can substantially improve a wide range of existing approaches by minimizing the underlying problem: The Semantic Gap between formalized meaning and human cognition. We deploy OWL as a Meaning Representation Language and create a unified model, which combines existing NLP methods with Linguistic knowledge and aggregates disambiguated background knowledge from the Web of Data. The presented methodology here allows to study and evaluate the capabilities of such aggregated knowledge to improve the efficiency of methods in NLP and Ontology learning.
