[edit] Abstract

Human made ontologies and lexicons are promising resources for many text mining tasks in domain specific applications, but they do not exist for most domains. We study the suitability of Wikipedia as an alternative resource for ontologies regarding the Semantic Relatedness problem. We focus on the biomedical domain because (1) high quality manually curated ontologies are available and (2) successful graph based methods have been proposed for semantic relatedness in this domain. Because Wikipedia is not hierarchical and links do not convey defined semantic relationships, the same methods used on lexical resources (such as WordNet) cannot be applied here straightforwardly. Our contributions are (1) Demonstrating that Wikipedia based methods outperform state of the art ontology based methods on most of the existing ontologies in the biomedical domain (2) Adapting and evaluating the effectiveness of a group of bibliometric methods of various degrees of sophistication on Wikipedia for the first time (3) Proposing a new graph-based method that is outperforming existing methods by considering some specific features of Wikipedia structure.
