[protege-discussion] Ontology discovery

Hi, everyone,

In answer to Richard Donovan about Ontology Learning, I would recommend
looking at  the article "Ontology Construction for Information
Classification" by  Weng et al., in Expert Sytems with  Applications 31
(2006), for a novel ontology construction method based on Formal Concept
Analysis (FCA) (not a Machine Learning method, but a very interesting

By the way, if anyone has additional interesting info. about the
connection between FCA on one hand,  and Automatic Construction
Methods of Ontologies on the other hand,  I would be happy to know about

There's a good research made by Ontology engineering group in
Politécnica de Madrid. It's called "A survey of ontology learning
methods and
techniques" - you can get it there. 

You need to define your data input and find appropriate method.
