Dental Decision Making on Missing Tooth Represented in an Ontology and Rules
The Web Ontology Language (OWL), which is a Description Logic based ontology language, is widely used to represent formal definitions of vocabularies for domain knowledge, especially in the medical domain. The Semantic Web Rule Language (SWRL), which is a Rule based ontology language, allows users to take advantage of inferencing of new knowledge from existing OWL knowledge base. In this paper, we describe a use case focused on building SWRL rule base on top of the tooth positional ontology represented in OWL so as to assist a dental decision-making on a missing tooth. Then, we discuss limitations of a current SWRL specification, through our experiences on converting dental knowledge into SWRL rules.
