Abstract:
This research developed a concept indexing framework which systematically integrates machine learning, natural language processing and ontology technologies to facilitate knowledge acquisition, extraction and organisation. The research reported in this thesis focuses first on the conceptual model of concept indexing, which represents knowledge as entities and concepts. Then the thesis outlines its benefits and the system architecture using this conceptual model. Next, the thesis presents a knowledge acquisition framework using machine learning in focused crawling Web content to enable automatic knowledge acquisition. Then, the thesis presents two language resources developed to enable ontology tagging, which are: an ontology dictionary and an ontologically tagged corpus. The ontologically tagged corpus is created using a heuristic algorithm developed in the thesis. Next, the ontology tagging algorithm is developed with the ontology dictionary and the ontologically tagged corpus to enable ontology tagging. Finally, the thesis presents the conceptual model, the system architecture, and the prototype system using concept indexing developed to facilitate knowledge acquisition, extraction and organisation. The solutions proposed in the thesis are illustrated with examples based on a prototype system developed in this thesis.
