Abstract

See full text

A cluster processing system determines at least one focal node on a hierarchically arranged tree structure of nodes based on attributes of a data set. The data set comprises a plurality of data set attributes with associated weight values. The cluster processing system selects a set of nodes from the tree structure with tree structure attributes that correspond with the data set attributes, and then assigns quantitative values to nodes in the set of nodes from the weight values in the data set. At least one cluster of nodes are selected, based on proximity in the tree structure, and at least one focal node on the tree structure for the cluster of nodes is selected. The focal node comprises an attribute most representative of the data set attributes. A terminological system learns the meaning of terms (attributes of a data set) by identifying categories (nodes) from a knowledge catalog (trees structure).
