Using Formal Concept Analysis and Rough Set Constructing the System of Semantic Web
Formal concept analysis (FCA) is based on a formalization of the philosophical understanding of a concept as a unit of thought constituted by its extent and intent. The rough set philosophy is founded on the assumption that with every object of the universe of discourse we associate some information. This paper deals with approaches to knowledge reduction in generalized consistent decision formal context. Finally, a new system model of semantic web based on FCA and rough set is proposed, which preserve more structural and featural information of concept lattice. In order to obtain the concept lattices with relatively less attributes and objects, we study the reduction of the concept lattices based on FCA and rough set theory. The experimental results indicate that this method has great promise.
