Abstract:
Knowledge representation depend on experts, even though such professionals do not have skills to provide the formalized knowledge needed to build formal ontologies. In this paper, we present a case study in which we investigate aspects and challenges in formalizing medical knowledge in a healthcare organization. Our experiment used two different instruments to conceptualize and formalize knowledge: i) for conceptualizing knowledge consensual, we used a collaborative framework called ConceptMe; ii) for analysing and formalizing of the knowledge collaboratively conceptualized, we used principles of the Basic Formal Ontology. Even though the process of formalizing knowledge is not a novelty, we try to explore how this task has been done in the scenario of Semantic Web and ontological engineering. We concluded that there is a strong and a sound complementarity between the two aforementioned frameworks, since the first provides a well- done approach for collaborative conceptual modelling and the second provides a way of establishing rules for carrying semi- formal knowledge to a formal level in ontologies. As main contributions, we emphasize the description of how to use the collaborative environment and the organization of a set of rules, as well as their application in real situations.
