Ontology is an explicit specification of a conceptualization on semantic and knowledge. This paper presents a formal definition on ontology and gives an example. Then, a method to measuring semantic similarity is presented. Semantic similarity is divided into concept similarity and description similarity. A calculation of semantic similarity between concepts in ontology is presented by the hierarchy of ontology concepts. To make the calculation of semantic similarity between concepts more similar to human's subjective judgment, semantic similarity is divided into concept similarity and description similarity; the final semantic similarity is produced by merging concept similarity and description similarity. Finally, the optimized parameter settings are gained through the experiment results.
