Onto-mQoL is a project from the QoL Technologies Lab (University of Geneva), supported by the European Commission (H2020 MSC Actions), which intends to support mobile assessment and interventions regarding quality of life domains. The basis for this study is the WHOQOL instrument, an quality of life assessement developed by the World Health Organisation (WHO) together with fifteen international field centres. This study is under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Katarzyna Wac, head of the QoL Tech Lab.More on WHOQOL
Holistic Representation: the multidimensional feature is a key aspect of the QoL research and the QoL dimensions usually have a high correlation so they cannot be analysed in isolation.
Temporal aspects: temporal concepts and relations are usually presented in the health domain, so their representation in ontological models is essential to extend the types of outcomes and answers for QoL issues.
Mobile assessment: integrated ontology models and related holistic reasoning processes can provide the mobile technology with a power resource to augment the semantic of assessments, providing support for the promotion of interventions.
Deduction/induction support: the use of ontologies for deductive reasoning is straightforward since they are based on Description Logics. Differently, its use for inductive reasoning (e.g. symbolic-neural explanations) is a recent topic of IA and the use of temporal aspects can generate more expressive explanations.
