  2. 2  Graz University of Technology CIKM2014 2 Introduction &

    Motivation The importance of collaborative ontology-engineering projects increased over recent years due to an increase in • complexity of the modeled domains • requirements for the resulting ontology No individual is able to single-handedly cover the increased complexity and requirements. Hence, it is crucial to better understand and steer the underlying processes of how users collaboratively work on an ontology (i.e., via predictive models).
  3. 3  Graz University of Technology CIKM2014 3 Approach &

    Objective To that extend we analyzed five collaborative ontology- engineering projects from the biomedical domain to: 1. explore regularities and common patterns in user action sequences 2. fit and select models using Markov chains of varying order 3. predict user actions via the fitted Markov chains Our main objective is to predict future user actions in collaborative ontology-engineering projects.
  4. 4  Graz University of Technology CIKM2014 4 Datasets Five

    collaborative ontology-engineering projects from the biomedical domain with varying sizes of features. Note that all ontologies were created with WebProtégé or derivatives of WebProtégé!

    Paths 1. Users for Classes  Sequences of users that changed a class. 2. Change Types for Users & Classes  Sequences of change types performed by a user / on a class. 3. Properties for Users & Classes  Sequences of properties changed by a user / for a class.

    and Sequential Patterns
  11. 11  Graz University of Technology CIKM2014 11 Exploring Regularities

    Randomness & Regularities Wald-Wolfowitz runs test  Adapted by O’Brien and Dyck (1985)  For ~60% of our paths, regularities could be detected.1 Sequential Pattern Mining PrefixSpan to investigate commonly used sequential patterns. Only immediately succeeding states build patterns.  E.g., “A B C” contains “A B” and “B C” but not “A C” 1https://github.com/psinger/RunsTest

    & Selection
  15. 15  Graz University of Technology CIKM2014 Modeling Fitting 

    Markov chains are stochastic processes representing transition probabilities between a countable number of known states.  A state space: listing all possible states  A transition matrix: listing all transition-probabilities between states  A Markov chain of n-th order means that n previous states contain predictive information about the next state.
  16. 16  Graz University of Technology CIKM2014 16 Modeling Fitting

    & Selection We fitted Models from orders of zero to five.2  Lower order models are nested within higher order models.  Higher orders need exponentially more parameters and may result in overfitting. Bayesian model selection (Singer et al. 2014)2  Higher order models receive a penalty due to higher complexity. 2 https://github.com/psinger/PathTools

    Prediction Experiment 1. Fit Markov chain model.  Split Paths into training and test set (stratified).  Rank transitions for each row in the transition matrix. 1. Determine position of test set transition in the fitted Markov chain model. 1. Calculate average over all positions.  Average Position of 1 equals best prediction accuracy.

  22. 22  Graz University of Technology CIKM2014 22 Conclusions 

    A number of sequences were produced in a non- random way and frequent patterns can be extracted.  Memory effects (serial dependence) can increase prediction accuracy.  The resulting prediction models can (potentially) be used for  the creation of various recommendations as well as  to assess the impact of potential changes on the ontology and the community.
  23. 23  Graz University of Technology CIKM2014 23 Future Work

     Include additional data sources (e.g., Semantic MediaWikis).  Analyze higher order patterns and compare patterns of different data sources  Conduct live-lab experiments with generated prediction-models (recommendations).
