SEDIC Project - Semantic medicine

  1. 1. Semantic Medicine Alexandra Lacatus, Emanuela Catana Faculty of Computer Science, Iasi
  2. 2. Motivation  Herbal Medicine is an important alternative to drug-based medicine  HM represents many people’s choices  The web has plenty of relevant information (unstructured yet)  The project combines the use of semantic data representation with useful information (medicinal plants) 2 Semantic Medicine, FCS Iasi, 2013
  3. 3. Current work  Medicinal plant collections (HerbMed, MedlinePlus)  Ontologies for modelling plant vocabularies (The Plant Ontology)  Ontologies for indian medicinal plants (MP-Ontology, KIMP project) 3 Semantic Medicine, FCS Iasi, 2013
  4. 4. SEDIC Project Milestones  HM-ontology specification  Data extraction (websites, DBpedia)  REST API + SPARQL endpoint to access the data  Android client application 4 Semantic Medicine, FCS Iasi, 2013
  5. 5. Main user stories  Search for a possible cure for an illness An illness is characterized by an affected body area and some affection parameters (intensity, type). The user can also specify a medical condition (contraindications, other diseases)  Look up for the characteristics of a specific plant (search upon a plant name) 5 Semantic Medicine, FCS Iasi, 2013
  6. 6. System architecture 6 Semantic Medicine, FCS Iasi, 2013
  7. 7. Proposal – HM-Ontology  A task-oriented ontology for representing medicinal plants 7 Semantic Medicine, FCS Iasi, 2013
  8. 8. Proposal – REST API  GET /plantRemedy  Gets the information about a single plant remedy  POST /plantRemedy  Uses the existing parameters to search for remedies  GET /plant  Returns information about a specific plant  POST /plant  Uses the parameters to search for plants with the specified name/location 8 Semantic Medicine, FCS Iasi, 2013
  9. 9. Until next time: priorities  We will focus more on the modelling part and on the REST API implementation rather than on the esthetical aspects on this project  Depending on the timeframe, we could include also extra features, like the possibility to add an upvote/downvote for a remedy 9 Semantic Medicine, FCS Iasi, 2013
