Organizing data into category hierarchies
(taxonomies) is useful for content discovery, search, exploration and analysis. In industrial settings targeted taxonomies for speciﬁc domains are mostly created manually,
typically by domain experts, which is time
consuming and requires a high level of expertise. This paper presents an algorithm
and an implemented interactive system for
automatically generating target-domain taxonomies based on the Wikipedia Category
Hierarchy. The system also enables human
post-editing, facilitated by intelligent assistance.
