Detection of Contextual Identity Links in a Knowledge Base

Abstract : Most of the Linked Data applications currently rely on the use of owl : sameAs for linking ontology instances. However, several studies have noticed multiple misuses of this identity link. These misuses, which are mainly caused by the lack of other well-defined linking alternatives, can lead to erroneous statements or inconsistencies. We propose in this paper a new contextual identity link: identiConTo that could serve as a replacement for owl : sameAs in linking identical instances in a specified context. To detect these contextual links, we have defined an algorithm named DECIDE that has been tested on scientific knowledge bases describing transformation processes.
