Semantic technology classification - a defence and security case study
In the last years, an increasing collaboration between defense and (civil) security, especially in technological areas can be observed. Here, an approach that automatically extracts relationships among defense - based technologies and security - based technologies is introduced. Information about these relationships can be used as planning support to defense and security - based technological research planners specifically for collaboration decisions. This approach uses machine learning techniques as supervised learning methods and a multi-label text classification algorithm to identify related technologies in different technological lists or taxonomies. Additionally, a web mining approach is used to create training examples. Similarities are computed by use of Jaccard's coefficient and by use of the fuzzy alpha cut method. Further, this approach uses standard text mining methods to prepare unstructured textual information.
