When?

We started to research about this topic some years ago. The Relevant idea and implementation started on December 2005.

Why?


How?

For generating relevant values we have to face two issues:
  1. How can we cluster the values of the domain in order to put together in a relevant value a set of values which are strongly related?
    By means of data mining and clustering techniques, adapted to the problem on hand. The techniques take into account some semantics extracted from:
    1. the syntax of the values: values related to the same object may have the same etymology and then share a common root;
    2. the dominance, which discovers values more general than other ones;
    3. the lexical meaning w.r.t. WordNet, which identifies semantically related values expressed with a different terminology.


  2. How can we choose the relevant value names?
    It will require the intervention of the designer, but we will provide an effective assistant.
