Abstract

This paper presents fuzzy clustering algorithms to establish a grassroots ontology ? a machine-generated weak ontology ? based on folksonomies. Furthermore, it describes a search engine for vaguely associated terms and aggregates them into several meaningful cluster categories, based on the introduced weak grassroots ontology. A potential application of this ontology, weblog extraction, is illustrated using a simple example. Added value and possible future studies are discussed in the conclusion.
