Experiment 20140208-NOOR

Agents achieve better syntactic F-measure than logical repairer (LogMap/Alcomo)

Experiment design

Date: 2014-02-08

Hypotheses: This is a revision of 20140207-NOOR with the use of Ontowrap which has revealed flaws in reference alignments and thus incorrect F-measures (and certainly revision). The network can achieve null incoherence degree. The network can revise better (in terms of F-measure) than LogMap and Alcomo.

Variation of: 20140207-NOOR

Experimental setting: Same as [20140207-NOOR] but it is possible to compare with LogMap and Alcomo.

Raw results


Initial results

Average degrees (Results from LogMap and Alcomo are reported from 20140208-NOOR.txt):

measure F-measure Incoherence degree
Initial 0.30 0.33
LogMap 0.32 0.21
Alcomo 0.30 0.00
Final 0.38 0.01

Invalid inhoherence for LogMap (due to a bug in the encoding of the network for computing incoherence): 2014-02-22


After, 100+ steps the network has reduced incoherence to nearly null.

Key points:

F-measure passes very quickly above that of LogMap and Alcomo (simply because agents know exactly what to revise).

F-measure now goes from 30% to 40%. This is higher than the previous experiments (invalid).

The explanations given for 20140207-NOOR still hold

  • All actions only remove correspondences, but above all
  • F-measure is purely syntactic
  • Alignments are not symmetric, then revision can only apply on half of them

Incoherence degree is non null because:

  • Alignments are not symmetric

Further experiments:

We are in position to implement the other experiments:

  • Make the matrix symmetric or implements "alignment" at each stage
  • Use semantic precision and recall.
