We were interested in whether we could model well-established clinical risk guidelines in OWL, and use these to automatically classify patient data v.v. "risk" (e.g. using the Framingham risk categories). What we ended-up doing, however, was wandering down a very interesting path of attempting to model clinical intuition! This reports the first phase of the experiment. A subsequent SlideShare will give part II of this investigation.
