Using Ontologies for Knowledge Engineering and Management in Medicine and Healthcare 

Dr. Arash Shaban-Nejad, Associate Professor

Division of Peds Research, Department of Pediatrics, College of Medicine

The University of Tennessee Health Science Center 

Health intelligence relies on the systematic collection and integration of data from diverse distributed and heterogeneous sources at various levels of granularity. These sources include data from multiple disciplines represented in different formats, languages, and structures posing significant integration and analytics challenges. Using a series of clinical and population health applications and use cases, this seminar highlights the contribution made by emerging semantic technologies that offer enhanced interoperability, interpretability, and explainability through the adoption of ontologies (a computational artifact capturing domain knowledge using concepts, relations, and complex logical rules and axioms), and knowledge graphs.
