Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Programming language
  • Database

Alan L. Rector mostly deals with Description logic, Terminology, Ontology, Artificial intelligence and Natural language processing. His Description logic research incorporates themes from Ontology, Abstract syntax and Web Ontology Language. His Terminology research integrates issues from Software engineering, Unified Medical Language System, Information retrieval and Medical terminology.

The concepts of his Ontology study are interwoven with issues in World Wide Web and Semantic Web. His work on Knowledge representation and reasoning as part of general Artificial intelligence study is frequently connected to Structure, therefore bridging the gap between diverse disciplines of science and establishing a new relationship between them. His work deals with themes such as Semantics and Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine, which intersect with Natural language processing.

His most cited work include:

  • Relations in biomedical ontologies (874 citations)
  • Medical informatics (325 citations)
  • The manchester OWL syntax (281 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

Alan L. Rector mainly focuses on Ontology, Artificial intelligence, Information retrieval, Natural language processing and Terminology. His Ontology research includes elements of Ontology and Description logic. His research investigates the connection with Description logic and areas like Knowledge representation and reasoning which intersect with concerns in Semantic Web.

His Artificial intelligence research incorporates elements of Vocabulary and Medical terminology. While the research belongs to areas of Natural language processing, Alan L. Rector spends his time largely on the problem of SNOMED CT, intersecting his research to questions surrounding Semantic interoperability, Data mining and Interoperability. Alan L. Rector combines subjects such as Unified Medical Language System, Interface and Data science with his study of Terminology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Ontology (34.62%)
  • Artificial intelligence (26.92%)
  • Information retrieval (22.60%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2019)?

  • Ontology (34.62%)
  • SNOMED CT (15.87%)
  • Information retrieval (22.60%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Ontology, SNOMED CT, Information retrieval, Artificial intelligence and Natural language processing are his primary areas of study. The Ontology study combines topics in areas such as Semantics and Description logic. As part of one scientific family, Alan L. Rector deals mainly with the area of Description logic, narrowing it down to issues related to the Knowledge management, and often Decision support system and Semantic reasoner.

The various areas that Alan L. Rector examines in his SNOMED CT study include Ontology, Semantic interoperability and Domain. His work in the fields of Protégé overlaps with other areas such as Axiom. His Natural language processing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Ontology engineering and Data mining.

Between 2008 and 2019, his most popular works were:

  • Binding ontologies and coding systems to electronic health records and messages (84 citations)
  • Getting the foot out of the pelvis: modeling problems affecting use of SNOMED CT hierarchies in practical applications (83 citations)
  • Embedding Knowledge Patterns into OWL (49 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Artificial intelligence
  • Programming language
  • Database

Alan L. Rector spends much of his time researching Ontology, Artificial intelligence, SNOMED CT, Natural language processing and Information retrieval. His studies in Ontology integrate themes in fields like Semantic reasoner and Software engineering. His SNOMED CT study necessitates a more in-depth grasp of Terminology.

The study incorporates disciplines such as Unified Medical Language System, Key, Medical terminology and Interface in addition to Terminology. His Information retrieval study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Referent, Statement, Relation and Information model. His study in Web Ontology Language is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Ontology language, Description logic and Risk assessment.
