|Title||A Replication Study: Understanding What Drives the Performance in WikiMatch|
|Year of Publication||2017|
|Authors||Zhou, L, Cheatham, M|
We replicate and demonstrate that the performance of the WikiMatch automated ontology alignment system may be driven not by the particular information from Wikipedia directly used by the system, but rather by string similarity and Wikipedia’s manually curated synonym sets, as encoded in the site’s query resolution and page redirection system. In order to gain a detailed understanding of how Wikipedia contributes to WikiMatch, we replicate results reported for WikiMatch and analyze the results to evaluate our hypothesis.
