TOVAR, Mireya; PINTO, David; MONTES, Azucena  and  GONZALEZ-SERNA, Gabriel. A metric for the Evaluation of Restricted Domain Ontologies. Comp. y Sist. [online]. 2018, vol.22, n.1, pp.147-162. ISSN 1405-5546.

In this article we propose a metric for the automatic evaluation of restricted domain ontologies. The metric is defined in terms of the evaluation of different lexico-syntactic, statistical and semantic approaches. A syntactic approach employed is the use of lexical syntactic patterns, other approaches as grouping by formal concept analysis, similarity, latent semantic analysis and dependence graphs are used as well. These approaches focus on reference corpora to find evidence of the validity of concepts and semantic relationships stored in the target ontology. The proposed evaluation approach is able to provide a score obtained through the metric, which is based on the accuracy measure used for each ontology evaluated. The score is associated in some way with the ontology quality. This score is given with a certain degree of reliability, and it is obtained by comparing the results given against the evaluation of human experts and a baseline.

Keywords : Ontology evaluation; format concept analysis; syntactic patterns.
