OWLS-MX: A Hybrid SemanticWeb ServiceMatchmaker forOWL-S Services

Matthias Klusch, Benedikt Fries, Katia Sycara


In this paper, we describe the first hybrid semantic Web service matchmaker for OWL-S services, called OWLSMX. It complements crisp logic-based semantic matching of OWL-S services with token-based syntactic similarity measurements in case the former fails. The results of the experimental evaluation of OWLS-MX provide strong evidence for the claim that logic-based semantic matching of OWL-S services can be significantly improved by incorporating non-logic-based information retrieval techniques. An additional analysis of false positives and false negatives of the hybrid matching filters of OWLS-MX led to an even further improved matchmaker version called OWLS-MX2.
