. Les-connaissances-qu, elles renferment sont structurées autour de la relation de subsomption qui définit une structure hiérarchique. Cette hiérarchie de subsomption est parfois exploitée à l'aide d'une mesure sémantique qui fournit une évaluation numérique d'une liaison entre deux concepts ou deux sous-ensembles de concepts

L. Singularité-de-notre-approche-est and . Qu, elle repose sur l'utilisation du contenu informationnel sans toutefois nécessité l'utilisation d'un corpus. Nous proposons des approximations de la mesure de probabilité qui permettent d'exploiter divers aspects d'un arbre de subsomption, Nous approfondissons la notion de contenu informationnel et les approximations proposées pour traiter correctement le cas de l'héritage multiple

. Le-problème-de-l, évaluation de liaisons entre deux objets sur la base d'une représentation ensembliste est largement traité dans la littérature. L'intérêt majeur de notre approche est de s'appuyer sur ces travaux grâce à une analogie qui permet de les transposer à une hiérarchie de subsomption. On met d'ailleurs en évidence des schémas classiques (e.g. coefficient de jaccard, coefficient de Dice) que respectent certaines mesures sémantiques, Cette analogie ouvre également la voie pour la définition de mesures sémantiques asymétriques en adaptant des travaux sur la qualité des règles en ECD
