Semi-automated Generation of Multilingual Domain-specific Taxonomies

The use of and need for domain-specific taxonomies are rapidly augmenting, as part of the growing interest in multilingual knowledge management. However, creating a fine taxonomy for any domain or industry use case can require many months of intensive expert work. To face this challenge, we converge human created and curated data with automated processes and a Knowledge Graph tool. Namely, we apply cross-lingual lexicographic content from KD-Lexicala with Semantic Web Company’s PoolParty Semantic Suite to generate multilingual domain-specific taxonomies. We will present the main resources and methodologies along with the initial results of semi-automated creation of multilingual taxonomies.
