A flexible approach for ranking complex relationships on the semantic Web
MetadataShow full item record
The focus of contemporary Web information retrieval systems has been to provide efficient support for the querying and retrieval of relevant documents. More recently, information retrieval over semantic metadata extracted from the Web has received an increasing amount of interest in both industry and academia. In particular, discovering complex and meaningful relationships among this metadata is an interesting and challenging research topic. Just as the ranking of documents is a critical component of today’s search engines, the ranking of complex relationships will be an important component in tomorrow’s Semantic Web analytics engines. Building upon our recent work on specifying and discovering complex relationships in RDF (Resource Description Framework) data, called Semantic Associations, we present a flexible ranking approach which can be used to identify more interesting and relevant relationships on the Semantic Web. Additionally, we demonstrate our ranking scheme’s effectiveness through an empirical evaluation over a real-world dataset.

Ranking documents using degrees of separation analysis from a large dataset of semantic relationships Howell, Matthew Raymond (uga, 2010-12)In this paper, a ranking mechanism is presented that ranks documents based on their Semantic Association Similarity, which is defined as the close-ness (based on degrees of separation) of associations between the entities ...
Milnor, III, William Henry (uga, 2005-12)In most contemporary approaches to pattern discovery in graphs, either quantitative anomalies or frequency of substructure is used to measure the relevance of a pattern. In this thesis, we address the issue of discovering ...
