Interactive Alignment API
The Interactive Alignment API is an extension of the well-known Alignment API which allows for automatically evaluating interactive ontology matching tools. The evaluation can be performed using arbitrary pairs of ontologies with a reference alignment.
The idea of interactive ontology matching is to design matching tools that may involve a user in the matching process, e.g., for letting users rate the correctness of candidate mapping elements. For automatic evaluation, the user is emulated by an oracle, which, since it knows the reference alignment, can answer all queries to the user.
The interactive alignment API provides a set of interfaces for implementing and testing interactive ontology matching tools.
