Towards Vagueness-Oriented Quality Assessment of Ontologies
8th Hellenic Conference on Artificial Intelligence, SETN 2014, Ioannina, Greece, May 2014
ABSTRACT
Ontology evaluation has been recognized for a long time now as an important part of the ontology development life-cycle, and several methods, processes and metrics have been developed for that purpose. Nevertheless, vagueness is a quality dimension that has been neglected from most current approaches. Vagueness is a common human knowledge and linguistic phenomenon, typically manifested by terms and concepts that lack clear applicability conditions and boundaries such as high, expert, bad, near etc. As such, the existence of vague terminology in an ontology may hamper the latterĘs quality, primarily in terms of share-ability and meaning explicitness. With that in mind, in this short paper we argue for the need of including vagueness in the ontology evaluation activity and propose a set of metrics to be used towards that goal.
