A Comparison of Two Ontology-Based Semantic Annotation Frameworks

Abstract : The paper compares two semantic annotation frameworks that are designed for unstructured and ungrammatical domains. Both frameworks, namely ontoX (ontology-driven information Extraction) and BNOSA (Bayesian network and ontology based semantic annotation), extensively use ontologies during knowledge building, rule generation and data extraction phases. Both of them claim to be scalable as they allow a knowledge engineer, using either of these frameworks, to employ them for any other domain by simply plugging the corresponding ontology to the framework. They, however, differ in the ways conflicts are resolved and missing values are predicted. OntoX uses two heuristic measures, named level of evidence and level of confidence, for conflict resolution while the same task is performed by BNOSA with the aid of Bayesian networks. BNOSA also uses Bayesian networks to predict missing values. The paper compares the performance of both BNOSA and ontoX on the same data set and analyzes their strengths and weaknesses.
