Announcing a new Meetup for Semantic Web - San Diego!

What: EHealth: How Semantic Retrieval benefits patients - Presentation by ai-one

When: Thursday, November 11,[masked]:30 PM

Where: Tri City Wellness center

Carlsbad, CA 92009

This session will have 2 components. Firstly we will have a featured speaker from ai-one, followed by a 15 minute break. Product demos follow after the break.


6:30-6:45 Introductions and Welcome
6:45-7:45 Learning a Lightweight Ontology for Semantic Retrieval in Patient-Centered Information Systems
by Prof. Ulrich Reimer
7:45-8:00 break
8:00-8:30 Demonstrations and technology overview
by Tom Marsh, COO of ai-one

About Prof Ulrich

ai-one is pleased to sponsor Prof. Ulrich Reimer, Institute for Information & Process Management University of Applied Sciences St. Gallen, Switzerland.
He will discuss the role of ai-one technology in the SEMPER Project and his paper, Learning a Lightweight Ontology for Semantic Retrieval in Patient-Centered Information Systems.

The paper introduces a web-based eHealth platform currently being developed that will assist patients with certain chronic diseases. The ultimate aim is behavioral change. This is supported by online assessment and feedback which visualizes actual behavior in relation to target behavior. Disease specific information is provided through an information portal that utilizes lightweight ontologies (associative networks) in combination with text mining. The paper argues that classical word-based information retrieval is often not sufficient for providing patients with relevant information, but that their information needs are better addressed by concept-based retrieval. The focus of the paper is on the semantic retrieval component and the learning of a lightweight ontology from text documents, which is achieved by using a biologically inspired neural network. The paper concludes with preliminary results of the evaluation of our approach in comparison with traditional approaches. This presentation will be relevant to those developing or maintaining semantic applications requiring ontologies.

A little about ai-one
ai-one inc. has developed an adaptive semantic neural net with semiotic data handling capabilities (holosemantic SDK/API with libraries) that allows users to quickly analyze and discover meaningful patterns of interleaved text, data, and images. Using ai-one? you can develop more intelligent applications that understand threaded ?context? for faster insights. We call this biologically inspired intelligence.

ai-one? current API libraries are Topic-Mapper ( semantic analysis, semantic matching, semiotic analysis for text and data) and UltraMatch ( finds patterns and information structures in images). The libraries are delivered as a Software Development Kit (?SDK?) with training and custom development support that includes building an ecosystem of APIs.

Tom Marsh, COO of ai-one will present an overview of the technology and demonstrate a new developer tool called BrainBoard for the Topic-Mapper SDK which will be introduced at the Supermath Conference. ai-one will be offering attending qualified developers a free extended trial of the Topic-Mapper SDK.

ai-one inc is based in San Diego, Zurich and Berlin
