Sense Aware Searching and Exploration with MyTag

Dellschaft, Klaas, Göerlitz, Olaf and Szomszor, Martin (2009) Sense Aware Searching and Exploration with MyTag At The 8th International Semantic Web Conference (ISWC 2009), United States. 25 - 29 Oct 2009.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)


In this work, we describe our approach on how to deal with tag ambiguity in tagging systems and how to enable a sense aware or semantic search. The sense aware search is realized by means of a Sense Repository which returns for given terms a list of potential senses. This list is then presented the user of the cross-folksonomy search engine MyTag so that he can explicitly select the sense he wants to search for. The search results are then ranked according to this sense so that relevant resources appear higher in the result list.
