Abstract: We have been building a Japanese medical ontology that provides an intelligent infrastructure for systematization and synthetic understanding of medical knowledge on a large scale. The objectives of our research include building a medical ontology and developing application systems based on it. We identified a few common fundamental technologies for understanding the medical ontology and implemented them. The main features of these technologies are summarized as the following two functions: dynamically generating is-a hierarchy according to the user’s interest, and providing natural language explanations. We built a prototype medical information service system using these fundamental technologies. We conducted an informal evaluation in a workshop and received favorable comments from medical experts.
