While the increasing popularity of folksonomies has lead to a vast quantity of tagged data, resource retrieval in folksonomies is limited by being agnostic to the meaning (i.e., semantics) of tags. Our goal is to automatically enrich folksonomy tags (and implicitly the related resources) with formal semantics by associating them to relevant concepts defined in online ontologies. We introduce FLOR, a method that performs automatic folksonomy enrichment by combining knowledge from WordNet and online available ontologies.
