Knowledge Representation and Management: Interest in New Solutions for Ontology Curation

Ferdinand Dhombres, Jean Charlet, Section Editors for the IMIA Yearbook Section on Knowledge Representation and Management
2021 IMIA Yearbook of Medical Informatics  
Objective: To select, present and summarize some of the best papers in the field of Knowledge Representation and Management (KRM) published in 2020. Methods: A comprehensive and standardized review of the medical informatics literature was performed to select the most interesting papers of KRM published in 2020, based on PubMed queries. This review was conducted according to the IMIA Yearbook guidelines. Results: Four best papers were selected among 1,175 publications. In contrast with the

The usual KRM application domains (bioinformatics, machine learning, and electronic health records) were also represented. Conclusion: In 2020, ontology curation emerges as a significant topic of research interest. Bioinformatics, machine learning, and electronics health records remain significant research areas in the KRM community with various applications. Knowledge representations are key to advance machine learning by providing context and to develop novel bioinformatics metrics. As in 2019, representations serve a great variety of applications across many medical domains, with actionable results and now with growing adhesion to the open science initiative.
