1 Data as Ontology Storage, Visualization, Query Martins Zviedris supervisor: prof. Guntis Barzdins

2 Background

3 AIMS AND RESULTS

4 DEFINE SYNTAX AND SEMANTICS OF A GRAPHICAL QUERY LANGUAGE AIM(1):

5 ViziQuer full

6 Is it understandable?

7 SHOW THAT END USERS CAN READ THE DEVELOPED GRAPHICAL QUERIES AIM(2):

8 ViziQuer lite

9

10 Readability Total 18 queries. Average 2.16 errors in case with tutorial and 2.46 without tutorial. 26 participants in each case.

11 DEVELOP A TOOL TO INPUT GRAPHICAL QUERIES AIM(3):

12 ViziQuer Available online

13 TEST THE GRAPHICAL QUERY LANGUAGE USABILITY IN PRACTICE EXPERIMENTAL USE IN MEDICAL DATA QUERYING; RECORDED OVER 200 TOOL DOWNLOADS AIM(4): RESULT(-):

14 OTHER RESULTS

15 Medical project Transformed RDB data to RDF data Tested ViziQuer

16 Ontology Based Information System (OBIS) Easy to configure Easy to use Lightweight

17 Ontology repository Schema extraction from existing endpoints Ontology repository for new OBIS based system creation

18 Related work Query-by-Example – backbone of visual query languages Tabulator – explore RDF data gFacet – table based RDF data query Unique feature – navigate over schema data in RDF data

19 Conclusions Common users do not understand math and technical terms; Language must be explicit and preferably self commented! ViziQuer lite incorporates query methodology

23 Discussion

24 Thanks!

25 Answers to remarks by opponents Is it sufficient to ask users how well they understand the visual language? The ViziQuer tool was tested by local users and medical domain specialists and was improved based on received feedback. I agree that a more formal testing would be useful.

26 Answers to remarks by opponents Arī apgalvojums, ka OWL ir populārākā ontoloģiju valoda ir iekļauts bez atsaucēm. Tajā pat laikā plaši tiek lietotas arī valoda KIF un citas. Varbūt, ka lai bāzētu pētījumu uz OWL, būtu nepieciešams analizēt arī citas valodu iespējas? OWL is de facto standard of W3C. Also it has standard of the query language SPARQL. Majority of online semantic data is in OWL/RDF and is available via SPARQL endpoints. It is used as one of open data publishing formats. European Union open data portal provides data via OWL/RDF and SPARQL endpoint.

27 Answers to remarks by opponents Autors arī pamato vajadzību ieviest papildus teksta veida apzīmējumus grafiskajos elementos (“What are”, „Restrict that” u.c.), lai uzlabotu lasāmību, bet līdz ar to rodas jautājums, vai nenotiek novirzīšanās no grafiskās valodas idejas, semantiku ietverot tekstā, nevis grafiskajos elementos ? Usability tests showed that some constructs benefit from graphical representation, but others not.
