A Concept Lattice Merger Approach for Ontology Construction


Article Preview

The method of merging concept lattice in domain ontology construction can describe the implicit concepts and relationships between concepts more appropriately for semantic representation and query match. In order to enrich semantic query, the paper intends to apply the theory of Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) to establish source concept lattices, through which the domain concepts are extracted from source concept lattices to generate the optimized concept lattice. Then, the ontology tree is generated by lattice mapping ontology algorithm (LMOA) combing some hierarchical relations in the optimized concept lattice. The experiment proves that the domain ontology can be achieved effectively by merging concept lattices and provide the semantic relations more precisely.
