Título: Building medical ontologies using Description Logics: what does
it buy us?

Palestrante: Prof. Franz Baader (TU Dresden)

Local: Auditório Jacy Monteiro IME-USP


Description Logics (DL) are a successful family of logic-based
knowledge representation languages, which can be used to represent
the conceptual knowledge of an application domain in a structured
and formally well-understood way. They are employed in various
application domains, such as natural language processing, databases,
the semantic web, and biomedical ontologies.

The talk will first give a brief introduction into DL and an overview of
the research in this area of the last 20 years. It will then argue that
Description Logics are well-suited for defining medical ontologies.
In particular, it will concentrate on the use of the light-weight DL
EL in the definition of the large medical ontology SNOMED.
