The World Wide Web (WWW) has radically changed the way in which we access, generate and disseminate information. Its presence is felt daily and with more internet-enabled devices being connected the web of knowledge is growing. We are now moving into era where the WWW is capable of ‘understanding’ the actual/intended meaning of our content. This is being achieved by creating links between distributed data sources using the Resource Description Framework (RDF). In order to find information in this web of interconnected sources, complex query languages are often employed, e.g. SPARQL. However, this approach is limited as exact query matches are often required. In order to overcome this challenge, this paper presents a probabilistic approach to searching RDF documents. The developed algorithm converts RDF data into a matrix of features and treats searching as a machine learning problem. Using a number of artificial neural network algorithms, a successfully developed prototype has been developed that demonstrates the applicability of the approach. The results illustrate that the Voted Perceptron classifier (VPC), perceptron linear classifier (PERLC) and random neural network classifier (RNNC) performed particularly well, with accuracies of 100%, 98% and 93% respectively.
