This work applies Grammatical Evolution to identify taxonomic hierarchies of concepts from Wikipedia.
Each article in Wikipedia covers a concept and is cross-linked by hyper-links that connect related concepts.
Hierarchical taxonomies and their generalization to ontologies are a highly useful resource for many
applications by enabling semantic search and reasoning. We have developed a system which arranges
a set of Wikipedia concepts into a taxonomy.
