Kudos to Sifat Islam and Glenn Fretag for their great work on the Diabetes Management Application which using the Semantic Web to search the WWW for related diabetes drug information. Just one of the links to a collection of their work is here. The ontology created by Sifat is the foundation of my ontology for this project. The goal is to also make Sifat and Glenn’s application useful for searching the web for all sort of information, not just that concerning diabetes. Sifat has presented his research and demo’d the application in a recent class of Dr. Shankar’s. I need to follow up with Sifat on a few questions I have after his presentation. I’ll get that set up in the next week or so.
