Where, What, Why: Mr. Q on the Web

Ammann, A. / Kiss, T. / Hirsch, M. / Matthies, H.

Pages: 183 - 200

Nevertheless, the question remains how qualitative knowledge can be selected, ie, knowledge needed for supporting decisions in medicine and dentistry. Semantic search engines are one current approach to this problem. For this reason, a project entitled Mr. Q, your personal Web Assistant has been initiated and will be introduced in this paper.
