Searching and browsing tag spaces using the semantic tag clustering search framework
Many of the existing cloud tagging systems are unable to cope with the syntactic and semantic tag variations during user search and browse activities. As a solution to this problem, we propose the Semantic Tag Clustering Search, a framework which is able to cope with these needs. The framework consists of two parts: removing syntactic variations and creating semantic clusters. For removing syntactic variations, we use the normalized Levenshtein distance and the cosine similarity measure based on tag co-occurrences. For creating semantic clusters, we improve an existing non-hierarchical clustering technique. Using our framework, we are able to find more clusters and achieve a higher precision than the original method.
