Onto-Wiki: Leveraging Wikipedia for Generating Ontology for the Annotation of a Domain Corpus

Defining of domain ontology provides the framework for organizing the intra- and interspecific relationships between domains and domain constituents. However, creating ontology and ontological structure for a given domain of interest, especially from semi-structured data is expensive, laborious and highly based on human effort and acquaintance of domain knowledge. In fact, there exist very few real domain ontologies available, and a large share of ontologies published on the web are outdated, dead collections. Fortunately, researchers at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette have developed and implemented a novel, generalized, automated method that utilizes a Wikipedia-based semantic schema annotation model for extracting ontologies and ontological structure from semi-structured data (Onto-Wiki).
