Découverte de schéma pour les données du Web sémantique

Abstract : An increasing number of linked data sources are published on the Web. However, their schema may be incomplete or missing. In addition, data do not necessarily follow their schema. This flexibility for describing the data eases their evolution, but makes their exploitation more complex. In our work, we have proposed an automatic and incremental approach enabling schema discovery from the implicit structure of the data. To complement the description of the types in a schema, we have also proposed an approach for finding the possible versions (patterns) for each of them. It proceeds online without having to download or browse the source. This can be expensive or even impossible because the sources may have some access limitations, either on the query execution time, or on the number of queries.We have also addressed the problem of annotating the types in a schema, which consists in finding a set of labels capturing their meaning. We have proposed annotation algorithms which provide meaningful labels using external knowledge bases. Our approach can be used to find meaningful type labels during schema discovery, and also to enrichthe description of existing types.Finally, we have proposed an approach to evaluate the gap between a data source and itsschema. To this end, we have proposed a setof quality factors and the associated metrics, aswell as a schema extension allowing to reflect the heterogeneity among instances of the sametype. Both factors and schema extension are used to analyze and improve the conformity between a schema and the instances it describes
