Improving Semantic Relatedness in Paths for Storytelling with Linked Data on the Web

by Laurens De Vocht, Christian Beecks, Ruben Verborgh, Erik Mannens, Thomas Seidl, and Rik Van de Walle

Algorithmic storytelling over Linked Data on the Web is a challenging task in which many graph-based pathfinding approaches experience issues with consistency regarding the resulting path that leads to a story. In order to mitigate arbitrariness and increase consistency, we propose to improve the semantic relatedness of concepts mentioned in a story by increasing the relevance of links between nodes through additional domain delineation and refinement steps. On top of this, we propose the implementation of an optimized algorithm controlling the pathfinding process to obtain more homogeneous search domain and retrieve more links between adjacent hops in each path. Preliminary results indicate the potential of the proposal.
