Wikipedia provides rich semantic features e.g., text, link, and category structure. These features can be used to compute semantic similarity (SS) between words or concepts. However, some existing Wikipedia-based SS methods either rely on a single feature or do not incorporate the underlying statistics of different features. We propose novel vector representations of Wikipedia concepts by integrating their multiple semantic features. We utilize the available statistics of these features in Wikipedia to compute their weights. These weights signify the contribution of each feature in similarity evaluation according to its level of importance. The experimental evaluation shows that our new methods obtain better results on SS datasets in comparison with state-of-the-art SS methods.
