WHAT IS DISPEDIA?
Dispedia is a framework for information brokering and knowledge management in the complex field of rare diseases. On the one hand, the Dispedia framework uses semantic technologies to describe patients affected by rare diseases, and on the other hand, to record expertise concerning these particular diseases in machine-processable form. In addition to the differentiated attribution of facts to the individual need for information, Dispedia enables information brokering which adjusts to the type of recipient, its character as well as its personal attitude. The framework was initially geared to an exemplified disease, Amyotrophe Lateralsclerose (ALS).
