Abstract: Ontology alignment describes a process of mapping ontological concepts, classes and attributes between different ontologies providing a way to achieve interoperability. While there has been considerable research in this area, most approaches that rely upon the alignment of attributes use label-based string comparisons of property names. The ability to process opaque or non-interpreted attribute names is a necessary component of attribute alignment. We describe a new attribute alignment approach to support ontology alignment that uses the density estimation as a means for determining alignment among objects. Using the combination of similarity hashing, Kernel Density Estimation (KDE) and Cross entropy, we are able to show promising F-Measure scores using the standard Ontology Alignment Evaluation Initiative (OAEI) 2011 benchmark.
