TitreCan we improve the usefulness and engineering of biomedical ontologies? 
RésuméThe Gene Ontology has demonstrated in the last years the usefulness of ontologies for supporting the analysis of biomedical data. Such success has provoked the development of many biomedical ontologies, and repositories like BioPortal store nearly 500 hundred ontologies. The content of these ontologies is usually rich in natural language (friendly for humans) but not so rich in logical axioms (not so friendly for machines), which limits the automatic exploitation of the content by means of applications and the possibilities of more fine-grained data analyses. This is usually called hidden semantics. In this talk, we will describe the efforts made to analyze convert such hidden semantics into explicit content and potential applications to detect irregularities and flaws in the design and engineering of the ontologies. Examples with relevant ontologies and terminologies like the Gene Ontology and SNOMED CT will be presented.
