CHIME researcher contributes to new book

15 September 2009

A new book, Intelligent Engineering Systems and Computational Cybernetics, has been published. The book is a collection of recent research materials on very diverse topics in artificial intelligence, including medical applications.

Dr Igor Toujilov (CHIME) and Dr Sylvia Nagl (the UCL Cancer Institute) contributed a chapter to the book, describing their research in knowledge representation for cancer medicine. This research spans a period when Dr Toujilov was working in the Cancer Institute on the CancerGrid project, devoted to creation of UK national metadata repositories for clinical trials. The knowledge representation technique is based on the Semantic Web technology, which involves automatic reasoning on ontologies.

Dr Toujilov is continuing to use Semantic Web technology in the DebugIT project (EU collaboration in treatment of infectious diseases), led from UCL by Professor Dipak Kalra. Previous projects in CHIME include mammography applications of ontologies in collaboration with Dr Paul Taylor who is a principal investigator of the project.
