Sense Aware Searching and Exploration with MyTag

Presented at: 8th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC2009)

by Klaas Dellschaft, Olaf Görlitz, Martin Szomszor


In this work, we describe our approach on how to deal with tag ambiguity in tagging systems and how to enable a sense aware or semantic search. The sense aware search is realized by means of a Sense Repository which returns for given terms a list of potential senses. This list is then presented to the user of the cross-folksonomy search engine MyTag so that he can explicitly select the sense he wants to search for. The search results are then ranked according to this sense so that relevant resources appear higher in the result list.
