A clustering technique for semantic network processing

Hiyan Alshawi

May 1982, 9 pages


This paper describes techniques for performing serial processing on the type of semantic network exemplified by NETL. They make use of an indexing scheme that can be based on semantic clustering. The basic algorithm is aimed at performing fast intersection operations. It is claimed that the scheme is suitable for its current application in text processing. The semantic criteria for clustering that have been tried are briefly described. Extensions of the scheme are suggested for use with large networks.
