Multi-Label Classification as a Service for Academic Journals

Oxford University Press, a department of the University of Oxford, has been developing semantic enrichment capabilities over a number of years, to improve the management and usage of our books, journals and dictionary content. This talk will describe a service to tag journal articles with terms from a SKOS taxonomy using a multi-class, multi-label classification algorithm using the Pool Party Semantic Classifier. I will outline some of the considerations we had when implementing a semantic service in a publishing production system, and how we overcame the classic challenges of limited training data and overlapping semantic classes using mapping techniques to alternative data sets tagged with different ontologies.

Lessons Learned Building a Knowledge Graph: A Case Study of the Inter-American Development Bank
