Vortrag von Prof. Dr. Uli Sattler im Rahmen unserer ZBI "Distinguished Speaker Series"

Am Mittwoch, 09. Januar 2013, wird Prof. Dr. Uli Sattler (IMG Management Group, University of Manchester, UK) im Rahmen der ZBI "Distinguished Speaker Series" einen Vortrag zum Thema "OWL Ontologies - magic dust, snake oil, or the best thing since sliced bread?" halten (Raum 001, ZBI (Gebäude E 2.1); Beginn: Punkt 17:00 Uhr).

 

Abstract:
Ontologies are built and used for various kinds of applications, in particular in biology and the clinical sciences. In this talk, we will give a brief introduction to OWL ontologies, and then look more closely into two kinds of applications: vocabulary development and ontology-based data access. We will discuss the possible benefits of using OWL ontologies in these types of applications, and how this can inform our design choices when building or reusing ontologies. This talk is aimed at a general audience, and does not require in-depth knowledge of OWL.
