Finding Semantic Similarity in a Biological Domain: A Human-Centered Approach

T. YAMAUCHI, and N. Yu. Proceedings of the Workshop on Ontology Matching (OM2007) at ISWC/ASWC2007, Busan, South Korea , (November 2007)


A behavioral study investigated how college students judge similarity between cell pictures. The study indicates that there is a strong tendency to rely on class-inclusion relations in judgments of similarity. This means that biological concepts are likely to be organized and conceptualized with respect to class-inclusion relations even for non-experts.
