The Indiana Philosophy Ontology Project (InPho)

InPhoThe InPhO analyzes over 37 million words of philosophical content from:

The InPho makes it possible to search and navigate via relations among philosophical ideas scholars and works.

The InPhO is constructed by a novel 3-step semi-automated process, called dynamic ontology:

  1. Data Mining — Natural language processing (NLP) techniques generate statistical hypothesis about the relationships among philosophically-salient topics.
  2. Expert Feedback — These hypotheses are evaluated by domain experts through online interfaces.
  3. Machine Reasoning — A machine reasoning program uses feedback and statistical measures to populate the ontology.

Further details on dynamic ontology can be found on the Articles and Papers page.
