1 © University of Manchester Intermediate Representations Taming the complexity monster(s) Dr Jeremy Rogers Manchester University BioHealth Informatics Group

2 © University of Manchester Ontology Engineering Complexity Monsters ►Computation ►The Domain ►Artefacts ►Understanding

3 © University of Manchester Domain Complexity Medicine is big ►Very large and inherently complex ►975,354 distinct UMLS concepts ►but this is still too small

4 © University of Manchester Domain Complexity Medicine is big UMLS: 975,000 different medical concepts Concepts 150, ,000 50, , , ,000 Pathology II (1980) (V 3.0) (V 3.1) (V 3.2) (V 3.3) (V 3.4) (V 3.5) SNOMED II (1979) SNOMED International SNOMED RT (Beta) (V 3.0) (V 3.1) (V 3.2) (V 3.3) (V 3.4) (V 3.5) SNOMED CT 344,000 (Jan 2003)

5 © University of Manchester Domain Complexity Medicine is changing New entities defined… Charcot-Marie-Tooth 1:2500 genetically determined peripheral neuropathy 1975 (ICD) - one code 1996 (Steadmans) – 3 codes 2003 (OMIM) – 46 phenotypic variants, 39 identified locus …old ones consigned to history

6 © University of Manchester Domain Complexity But this is tip of iceberg… ►15496 OMIM UIDs (1 Feb 2006) ►Conditions probably or definitely at least partly genetically determined, including: ► Appendicitis ► Bed Wetting ► Adult Acne ► Psoriasis ► Alcoholism ► Tobacco Addiction ► Pathologic Gambling ► Cluster Headache ► Benign Sexual Headache ► Deafness ► Depression/Mania ► Male pattern baldness ► Raynaud Disease ,000 14,737 15,496

7 © University of Manchester Domain Complexity Multiple User Views ►Different Purpose ►[Physician] – where is the pain (and the lesion)? ►[Pharmacologist] – what is physiology of pain receptors and conduction? ►[Neurologist] – in phantom limb pain, how is pain perceived? ►Different focus ►Ontology for diabetic Sx: ►Abscess:Locus(finger, hand, forearm, arm, shoulder, neck, face, scalp, chest, abdomen, back, thigh, calf, shin, forefoot or toe) ►Ontology for diabetic Rx: ►Penicillin – IndicatedFor – Abscess:Locus(Skin) ►Ischaemia:Locus(finger, hand, forearm, arm, shoulder, neck, face, scalp, chest, abdomen, back, thigh, calf, shin, forefoot or toe)

8 © University of Manchester Domain Complexity Needs of external KBs ►Need for lots of rules ►Form on [Hand] should have options [left, right] ►Form on [Palm of hand] should have options [left, right] ►Form on [Finger] should have options [left, right] ►Form on [Thumb] should have options [left, right] ►Form on [First metacarpal] should have options [left, right] ►Etc. etc. ►Obscure categories required for parsimony ►ALL Forms on [mirror-imaged body structures] OR [their subparts] should have option ANY [laterality] ►ALL Forms on [respiratory disease] should have options [cough, wheeze] ►ALL Forms on [symptoms] should have option ANY [severity]

9 © University of Manchester Domain Complexity Polyhierarchies ►Requirement for multiaxial classification ►World is used to monoaxial classification ►Very large domain  very large polyhierarchies ►Impossible to accurately construct by hand ►Inherently confusing to navigate ►The smallprint, if made explicit, overwhelms us

10 © University of Manchester Artefactual Complexity Unreadable notations (ClinicalSituation which )) isCharacterisedBy (presence which isExistenceOf (UrgeToVoidUrineOrFaeces which hasProcessActivity (ProcessActivity which hasQuantity (Level which hasMagnitude highLevel)))) isCharacterisedBy (presence which isExistenceOf AbdominalStraining) >) (XrayComputedTomography which hasPart (Injecting which actsOn RadioopaqueContrastMedium)) name ContrastCTScan

11 © University of Manchester Artefactual Complexity Workarounds ►Limitations in formalism  Workarounds

12 © University of Manchester Cognitive Complexity ►Scale of task ►Multiple authors ►Quality control and assurance ►Formal ontologies require great precision ►Poor debugging tools ►Natural Language can misdirect

13 © University of Manchester Complexity Effect on the user Syntactic confusion – I can’t read this Navigational Confusion – I don’t need most of this Navigational Uncertainty – where am I ? Editorial Uncertainty – atom or primitive ? Editorial Confusion – what recipe ?

14 © University of Manchester #1 Challenge for Ontology Engineering: Hide the complexity
