About Snowflake

What is Snowflake?: Snowflake is an Inria Associate Team joining the Inria ORPAILLEUR team and Shah and Dumontier Labs .

What goal?: The aim of Snowflake is to study the impact of connecting Electronic Health Records (EHRs) with Linked Open Data (LOD).

Why? Because we think that LOD and associated ontologies can guide the process of knowledge discovery from EHRs.

Scientific objectives of Snowflake are:

  1. To increase the quality of information extraction from EHRs.
  2. To create accurate links between EHR extracted data and LOD.
  3. To discover knowledge that explains the variability of drug responses.
