Subject Re: UIMA and ontology
Date Thu, 01 Aug 2013 22:49:02 GMT

my colleagues and I have already faced the challenge of doing ontology
population/learning using UIMA.

In [1] we introduce CODA, an architecture and an associated framework which
support you in producing RDF out of UIMA analysis results. In [2] we
describe the PEARL language for declaratively specifying this mapping.
Beyond the academic papers, you can refer to
http://art.uniroma2.it/coda/for documentation and instructions on how
to get CODA. As they are under
active development, the documentation may be slightly out-of-date. If you
are interested, feel free to contact us by private email for

In [3] we describe a system based on [1, 2] for extracting semantic
relations between AGROVOC [4] concepts from Web pages. In this system, UIMA
analysis engines (from the project DKpro) perform the linguistic analysis,
while PEARL is used to actually produce RDF triples.
