Advances and Challenges of an Ontology Focused on Verbs Related to Political Violence
Currently, it is common to find various conceptual representation computational tools to support the work of specialists in different fields of knowledge. To study political violence, however, there are no such tools to formally organize and structure pertinent knowledge and facilitate the study of the vast amount of information available today.
Linguistic clues may be one of the foundations to describe, classify and represent knowledge. Preferentially, to produce automatic management, common nouns, proper nouns and adjectives have been used as an axis, provided their capability to represent concepts. However, it is also possible to base the automatic administration of texts on verbs, for they represent action and furnish a possibility to understand reality dynamically, under the form of a cluster of events.
On the other hand, in the context of present techniques of information management, ontologies are tools designed to enable a conceptual representation in a field of knowledge. Moreover, they must, at the same time, standardize the formal description of knowledge of a specialized field, and prepare the use of automata to produce structured data and facilitate the work of theorists. ← 67 | 68 →
The project detailed here consists on the design and development of a verbs based ontology in order to create an information system on political violence, taking as...
