Semantic Matching

Semantic matching is a technique used in computer science to identify information which is semantically related.Given any two graph-like structures, e.g. classifications, database or XML schemas and ontologies, matching is an operator which identifies those nodes in the two structures which semantically correspond to one another. For example, applied to file systems it can identify that a folder labeled “car” is semantically equivalent to another folder “automobile” because they are synonyms in English. This information can be taken from a linguistic resource like WordNet.In the recent years many of them has been offered. S-Match is an example of a semantic matching operator.
