System interoperability is a well known issue, especially for heterogeneous information systems, where ontology- based representations may support automatic and user- transparent integration. In this paper we present X-SOM: an ontology mapping and integration tool. The contribution of our tool is a modular and extensible architecture that automatically combines several matching techniques by means of a neural network, performing also ontology debugging to avoid inconsistencies. Besides describing the tool components, we discuss the prototype implementation, which has been tested against the OAEI 2006 benchmark with promising results.

Abstract

System interoperability is a well known issue, especially for heterogeneous information systems, where ontology- based representations may support automatic and user- transparent integration. In this paper we present X-SOM: an ontology mapping and integration tool. The contribution of our tool is a modular and extensible architecture that automatically combines several matching techniques by means of a neural network, performing also ontology debugging to avoid inconsistencies. Besides describing the tool components, we discuss the prototype implementation, which has been tested against the OAEI 2006 benchmark with promising results.
