Good Morning everybody, my name is Krzysztof Cieśliński. I’m solution architect in Cognitum company and I’m going to present one of our projects which utilizes semantic technologies.
Maybe some of you know the Fluent Editor – ontology editor Ontorion server – Distributed Knowledge Management System with Natural Language interface ADA – business intelligence tool
Few basic questions at the begining. The registry entry point is a web application with forms which are filled by doctors.
Why – PSSO has started a new clinical examination and they wanted to have a central registry for collecting clinical data about it
First and the most important requirement for PSSO is that appllication can be easily expanded with new modules, for new clinical examinations. So right now we have single module – the rectal cancer but in future there will be more. Easy to maintain – the clinical examination protocols are pretty complex and it can happen that during implementation some bugs can appear, or for the analysis purposes doctors can store more data Secure – There are 70+ institutions which are treating cancer, and patient sensitive data can be viewed only by doctors from institution which is treating that particular patient. Scalable – in many ways, number of patients/modules/doctors who are working with the application. Intuitive – Surgeons are very busy people, and their time is really precious. So the user interface have to be really clear and intuitive. Someone said that user interface is like a joke – if you have to explain it then it’s not so good.
Meet the requirements
We have knowledge which is divided to UI knowledge and Domain knowledge. First describes the schema so the forms, sections fields and relations between them, while second defines the contents of the forms – so the specific questions, answeres and transitions. These two sets intersects and then the ARBUI mapper is able generate UI from it. So filling up the forms generates new knowledge about the answeres which can trigger generation of other fields/sections or even whole forms.
They do not differ
We don’t have to show all the fields at once.
Thank you for your attention!
