Summary of the paper

Title In the Heart of Semantic Technology
Authors Paolo Lombardi
Abstract The heart of semantic technology is a semantic network that is a lexical database in which terms are entered and grouped in nodes based on their meanings, that is to say the concepts they express. Leveraging our semantic network together our semantic engine (parser and a system of disambiguation), the semantic technology we developed allows a deep analysis of texts and in particular the automatic disambiguation of words with different meaning. The information of all the possible meanings of words and all of their grammatical details are fundamental in order to process text contents with high precision. That's why each node or concept in our semantic network is characterized by grammatical information (verb, noun, etc.) and semantic information as well: each concept is linked to the others by semantic connections in a hierarchical and hereditary structure, in the form of a graph. Through a sequence of passages of analysis of the text (morphological and grammatical analysis, syntactical and logical analysis), in order to carry out word meaning disambiguation, our semantic technology looks up its semantic network to find all possible meanings and choose the right one.
