ASKNet: automatically creating semantic knowledge networks from natural language text

Abstract:

This thesis details the creation of ASKNet (Automated Semantic Knowledge Network), a system for creating large scale semantic networks from natural language texts. Using ASKNet as an example, we will show that by using existing natural language processing (NLP) tools, combined with a novel use of spreading activation theory, it is possible to efficiently create high quality semantic networks on a scale never before achievable.

The ASKNet system takes naturally occurring English text ...
