It comprises the video synchronized with the slides (requires Flash) or the video alone. Table of Contents: Ontology Matching and Alignment Matching operation Example: two XML schemas Example: two ontologies Statement of the problem Applications Applications: Information integration Applications: summary Classification of basic techniques Classification of techniques (simplified) Basic techniques Systems: analytical comparison Semantic matching in a nutshell Concept of a label & concept at a node Four macro steps Step 1: compute concepts at labels Step 2: compute concepts at nodes Step 3: compute relations between (atomic) concepts at labels Step 3: Element level semantic matchers Step 4: compute relations between concepts at nodes Step 4: Example of a node matching task Motivation: Problem of low recall (incompletness) On increasing the recall: an overview Iterative semantic matching (ISM) ISM: Discovering critical points - example ISM: Generating candidate axioms ISM: generating candidate axioms Hierarchy Distance Test cases Matching systems Experimental results, test case #4 Experimental results, test case #5 Experimental results, #6,7,8: incompleteness Experimental results, #6,7,8: incompleteness (OAEI-2006 comparison) Outline Summary Future challenges (Some) references You are welcome to attend (11 Nov): 'Thank you'
