Domain Specific Ontologies
The idea of “Domain Specific Ontologies” is fundamental. Take, for example the following use cases:
In all these fields, the concept of Domain Specific Ontologies is fundamental.
We present an illustrative example of how differing purpose creates appropriately varying Domains of Discourse:
How many wheels does the car have?
The key issue here is that for each of their purposes, each answer is correct.
Doman Specific Ontologies for High Accuracy Translation Triage (HATT)
ArtisTech developed an approach to provide high-accuracy document search and triage in a target Foreign Language (FL) using a small domain specific ontology which includes highly accurate translated terms and phrases. The prototype of the HATT approach is called OntoFLex. OntoFLex allows the user to build an acyclic graph with relational links including both domain and metadata contents. This tool then uses general and language-specific search approaches to find and score matches in selected document search sets.
We conducted collaborative research with the Multi-Lingual Computing Group at the Army Research Laboratories (ARL) under the Advanced Decision Architectures (ADA) Collaborative Technology Alliance (CTA). In that research, we prototyped and pilot-tested a task-based approach to machine translation evaluation to support Army machine translation in systems like FALCon.
