Towards the Natural Ontology of Wikipedia

Andrea Giovanni Nuzzolese, Aldo Gangemi, Valentina Presutti and Paolo Ciancarini
In this paper we present preliminary results on the extraction of ORA: the Natural Ontology of Wikipedia. ORA4 is obtained through an automatic process that analyses the natural language definitions of DBpedia entities provided by their Wikipedia pages. Hence, this ontology reflects the richness of terms used and agreed by the crowds, and can be updated periodically according to the evolution of Wikipedia.
