Leveraging the Emergent Semantics in Twitter Lists for Ontology Development

Presented at: 9th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC2012)

by Andrés García-Silva, Oscar Corcho

In this poster we present an approach to obtain automatically domain ontologies relying on domain vocabularies elicited from Twitter lists and on the reuse of conceptualizations in existing knowledge bases. We tap into relations established between list names, under which prominent users in the domain of study as well as in the microblogging platform have been classified, to harvest related concepts. The relations between concepts are identified from interlinked general-purpose knowledge bases.

Keywords: Emergent Semantics, Linked data, Ontologies, Reuse, Twitter Lists
