The numerous employments of enhanced thesauri and ontologies in the ATOD field Dagobert Soergel College of Information Studies, University of Maryland SALIS meeting Berkeley, California April 23, 2004

Slide 2

Outline Review of thesaurus/metaphysics capacities (or KOS capacities KOS = Knowledge Organization Systems) Examples From the AOD Thesaurus Examples of information included for an advanced thesaurus

Slide 3

Functions of a thesaurus/philosophy Provide a semantic guide to the multi-disciplinary field Improve correspondence by and large. Bolster learning and absorbing data. Give the calculated premise to the outline of good research and execution. Give order to activity. Grouping for social and political purposes Support data recovery and investigation. Sorting out and monitoring products and administrations for trade (esp. ecommerce) and stock Support significant, all around organized presentation of data. H

Design of exploration and practice 3 More particular capacities: Provide order and reliable meaning of variables for examination assessment criteria for useful issues, This will upgrade the similarity of examination and assessment comes about make inquire about more combined.

Slide 10

Compilation and utilization of measurements This is a vital capacity. Utilize a thesaurus to bring together the definitions utilized as a part of the different ATOD utilize and related overviews, (for example, NHANES) Support information gathering The ideas in a grouping utilized for measurements not just make the gathered information retrievable, they characterize the very way of the information. Bolster information conglomeration For instance, total use numbers for all substances found in family unit items.

Slide 14

Meaningful, very much organized showcase Meaningful course of action of units (report records, sections, property information on a given substance amassed from a few databases, avoidance ventures) Includes important structure for Web destinations and subject indexes This backings investigation of vast recovered sets and, by augmentation, investigation of the substance of a whole gathering or subcollection. Significant game plan of data inside a unit (for instance important requesting of descriptors inside a bibliographic record, for example, masterminding descriptors in an ETOH record in the request of the AOD Thesaurus).

Slide 15

Conceptual premise for learning based frameworks Expert frameworks for help with Diagnosis in light of watched or evoked manifestations Patient-treatment coordinating Community-aversion approach coordinating Thesaurus must be extended to incorporate realities Rich philosophy A wealthier arrangement of connections Acquire truths from different sources Integrate with calculated and expressed data

Slide 16

Exploit the conceivable outcomes of the new medium Data structures of sufficient intricacy for rich substance Searchability and selectivity Flexibility of presentation. Make and store graphical showcases with live connection to the database Processing force and derivation Linkage
