SemaDrift: A Protégé Plugin for Measuring Semantic Drift in Ontologies - Drift-a-LOD workshop on 11/01/2017

This paper was presented by Efstratios Kontopoulos from PERICLES project partner CERTH/IT at the DRIFT-a-LOD workshop (Detection, Representation and Management of Concept Drift in Linked Open Data), which took place in Bologna (Italy) on 20 November 2016.

This full-day workshop aimed at bringing together different communities that define, identify and manage the dynamics of concepts in their knowledge bases using various domain-specific methods (statistical inference, symbolic reasoning, natural language processing, etc.) leveraging Linked Data as a data source or as a result publishing platforms. The paper presents the SemaDrift framework of tools and methods for measuring semantic drift across ontologies versions.
