[protege-discussion] Re quest for help with Protege FUNCTIONS

At NCI, ontologies are used for interoperability of different systems across a grid.  The different systems agree to use a common ontology to allow data to be exchanged freely between the systems.

I have also heard on ontologies being used to support searches of documents or web pages, looking for synonyms and such.  Person searches for "cat", the search app looks at the ontology and finds synonyms such as "feline" and possibly subconcepts like "kitten".  It then does the search using all of these terms.

Subject: [protege-discussion] Re quest for help with Protege FUNCTIONS


I have a few questions regarding Protege functions.   

Does Protégé do anything else besides have a user interface for making and
reading the ontology?

Can we use the user interface to query something more than the ontology,
maybe that the ontology assists? 

Can we use the ontology to do something else?

The concepts say ontolgies can do lots of things, but I want to know what we
can do with the software specifically."

Thank you,
