Contents Motivation and goals Short overview of OWL Lite The ILIADS method Experimental evaluation

3
ILIADS Goal: Produce high-quality integration via a flexible method able to adapt to a wide variety of ontology sizes and structures Method: Combining statistical and logical inference Use schema (structure) and data (instances) effectively Solution: Integrated Learning In Alignment of Data and Schema (ILIADS)

4
Contributions Show how to combine statistical and logical inference effectively Show that a small amount of inference yields high qualitative gain Show that parameters needed to perform inference over data and structure are robust Provide a thorough evaluation on 30 pairs of real-world ontologies (with ground truth)

Example OWL Lite ontologies (discoveredBy, owl:inverseOf, discoverer); (discoveredBy, owl:type, owl:FunctionalProperty) (discoveredBy, owl:inverseOf, discoverer); (associatedWith, owl:type, owl:TransitiveProperty) (resultsF rom, rdfs:subPropertyOf, associatedWith)

7
Example OWL Lite ontologies An entity can be a: Class (discoveredBy, owl:inverseOf, discoverer); (discoveredBy, owl:type, owl:FunctionalProperty) (discoveredBy, owl:inverseOf, discoverer); (associatedWith, owl:type, owl:TransitiveProperty) (resultsF rom, rdfs:subPropertyOf, associatedWith)

8
Example OWL Lite ontologies An entity can be a: Class Instance (discoveredBy, owl:inverseOf, discoverer); (discoveredBy, owl:type, owl:FunctionalProperty) (discoveredBy, owl:inverseOf, discoverer); (associatedWith, owl:type, owl:TransitiveProperty) (resultsF rom, rdfs:subPropertyOf, associatedWith)

State of the art Robust statistical methods Well-known similarity measures Used for matching data (entities) and schema May use graph structure of schema Logical inference Not combined with statistical inference Basis for most schema mapping and ontology integration methods Approaches integrate schema, but not data

20
Issues How to combine statistical inference with logical inference Takes into account data, structure, etc. so it’s no longer obvious In particular, how to quantify the results of logical inference into a similarity-like form? How to do logical inference in a tractable manner For OWL-Lite, EXPTIME-complete for the worst case for the entire ontology

21
The ILIADS algorithm repeat until no more candidates 1. Compute local similarities 2. Select promising candidates 3. For each candidate a. Select relationship b. Perform logical inference c. Update score with the inference similarity 4. Select the candidate with the best score end

23
Computing local similarities sim lexical : Jaro-Winkler and Wordnet sim structural : Jaccard for neighborhoods sim extensional : Jaccard on extensions parameters: λ x, λ s, λ e different for classes, instances and properties

25
Selecting promising candidates 1. Select candidates with sim(e,e’) > λ t 2. Use a policy based on entity type to order, e.g.: Class alignments first Instance alignments first Alternate between classes and instances

27
Selecting relationship Must decide on relation type subClassOf vs. equivalentClass subPropertyOf vs. equivalentProperty Determination is difficult, especially under the OWL open-world semantics Use a simple extension based technique based on a threshold λ r

31
Performing logical inference For the candidate pair (e,e’): Select an axiom to apply The logical consequences are the pairs of entities (e (i), e (j) ) that have just become equivalent Repeat a small number of times (5) to maintain tractability

Consistency The constructed alignment is not guaranteed to be consistent ILIADS can only detect inconsistencies that appear in the few logical inference steps Pellet used to check consistency after ILIADS Experimentally, inconsistent ontologies in less than.5% of runs

Experimental framework 30 pairs of real-world ontologies From 194 to over 20,000 triples From a variety of domains: medical, geographical, economical, biological Ground truth provided by human reviewers Multiple iterations to ensure the best human- provided alignment Datasets available:

43
Experimental framework Evaluation: precision, recall and F1 quality F1 = 2 * Precision * Recall / (Precision + Recall) 7 independent runs ILIADS Variations: ILIADS-tailored uses the best set of parameters for each pair of ontologies ILIADS-fixed uses one set of parameters for all pairs of ontologies Used to evaluate robustness of the parameters

44
Experimental framework ILIADS compared to two leading tools: FCA-merge [Stumme and Maedche, IJCAI 2001] uses formal concept analysis and an external document corpus COMA++ [Aumueller et al., SIGMOD 2005] implements multiple match strategies, including fragment and reuse-based matching

ILIADS parameters ILIADS- fixed Min ILIADS- tailored Max IILIADS- tailored Lexical parameters Structural parameters Extensional parameters

53
Choosing ILIADS parameters Despite the number of parameters, method is quite robust Parameters are stable around the ILIADS-fixed values if the two ontologies in a pair are not very different Strong correlations between Structural similarity coefficients and the average node degree Extensional coefficients and the ratio of instances to classes
