OBJECTIVE Development of a Semantic Web technology based system for the formalization of the gross description. METHOD A system is developed using the Java-2 platform. It is based on a light-weight version of the Galen top level ontology. Web technologies like XML, SAX en DOM have been used. RESULT Three system components have been developed to support(More)
There is a growing interest on how we represent and share tagging data for the purpose of collaborative tagging systems. Conventional tags are not naturally suited for collaborative processes. Being free-text keywords, they are exposed to linguistic variations like case (upper vs lower), grammatical number (singular vs. plural) as well as human typing(More)
Transient receptor potential (TRP) channels are a large family of non-selective cation channels that mediate numerous physiological and pathophysiological processes; however, still largely unknown are the underlying molecular mechanisms. With data generated on an unprecedented scale, network-based approaches have been revolutionizing the way in which we(More)
Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs) play an important role in improving the quality of care and patient outcomes. Although several machine-readable representations of practice guidelines implemented with semantic web technologies have been presented, there is no implementation to represent uncertainty with respect to activity graphs in clinical practice(More)
Tagging has proven to be a successful and efficient way for creating metadata through a human collective intelligence. It can be considered not only an application of individuals for expressing one's interests , but also as a starting point for leveraging social connections through collaborative user participations. A number of users have contributed to tag(More)
Transient receptor potential (TRP) channels are a family of Ca(2+)-permeable cation channels that play a crucial role in biological and disease processes. To advance TRP channel research, we previously created the TRIP (TRansient receptor potential channel-Interacting Protein) Database, a manually curated database that compiles scattered information on TRP(More)
Intelligent agents are applied to automate the process of negotiation. Typical multi-agent negotiation strategies only allow the exchange of precise quantitative values as attributes. In the real-world applications, many of the negotiation issues such as qualitative concepts, cannot be expressed by exact numeric values. In this paper, we propose a new(More)
