Ontologies: multi-function tools for data representation and mining

When: Tuesday, 2013-Jul-02, 11h30-12h00
Where: FCUL-DI, room C6.3.38
Presenter: Cátia Machado

Ontologies are structured and formal representations of knowledge, providing the definition of concepts and the relations between them. In this presentation, I’m going to give an overview of the use of ontologies, as well as present some concrete use-cases. In my work, ontologies are used in the biomedical context. However, ontologies exist for several domains of knowledge (e.g. linguistics, geography), and thus can be used in various contexts. Based on this, I expect to establish a discussion with the audience on how ontologies could be used in their work (or how they are already being using).
