Presentations

Working with big biomedical ontologies

Speaker

  • Robert Stevens, University of Manchester

Axioms in the Web Ontology Language can be hard to understand; large ontologies that use complex patterns of axioms are even harder to author and understand. In this talk, I will describe work we have done in the area of understanding and building ontologies that begins to address these issues. Included in the talk will be:
- Generating natural language from ontologies;
- Detecting regularities and irregularities in ontologies;
- Scripting-pattern-based addition of axioms to ontologies;
- Spreadsheet based approaches to populating ontologies.

I will illustrate the talk with examples taken from various biomedical ontologies and their applications in which we have been involved and draw some conclusions about what we are doing.
