SIS: semantic intelligent search engine from heterogeneous information sources applied to e-commerce

Ana I. Flores and Eduardo Villoslada

SIS leans on a platform that combines ontologies with thesauri to improve the data retrieval and the semantic queries. The results are enhanced by unifying the vocabulary of the information retrieved and translating the queries into the ontology domain.

The present article presents SIS as a practical realization of the platform in the field of e-commerce.
