A Tool for Facilitating Ontology Construction from Texts (English)
Abstract [en]

With the growth of information stored over Internet, especially in the biological field, and with discoveries being made daily in this domain, scientists are faced with an overwhelming amount of articles. Reading all published articles is a tedious and time-consuming process. Therefore a way to summarise the information in the articles is needed. A solution is the derivation of an ontology representing the knowledge enclosed in the set of articles and allowing to browse through them.

In this thesis we present the tool Ontolo, which allows to build an initial ontology of a domain by inserting a set of articles related to that domain in the system. The quality of the ontology construction has been tested by comparing our ontology results for keywords to the ones provided by the Gene Ontology for the same keywords.

The obtained results are quite promising for a first prototype of the system as it finds many common terms on both ontologies for justa few hundred of inserted articles.
