The increasing availability of structured machine-processable knowledge in the context of the Semantic Web, allows for inductive methods to back and complement purely deductive reasoning in tasks where the latter may fall short. This work proposes a new method for similarity-based class-membership prediction in this context. The underlying idea is the propagation of class-membership information among similar individuals. The resulting method is essentially non-parametric and it is characterized by interesting complexity properties, that make it a candidate for the application of transductive inference to large-scale contexts. We also show an empirical evaluation of the method with respect to other approaches based on inductive inference in the related literature.
