Creating an Ontology to Track Garbage in Space

Space isn’t normally the place where you think to clean up your litter. A vast, open environment, uninhabitable by man and covering an unimaginable amount of area, outer space appears to be the one place where rubbish tends to be unimportant. Recent reports have surfaced detailing the importance of tracking space debris in order […]

ICD-10 codes are used for medical billing purposes all over the world. If you limp into a healthcare facility with a broken ankle, there’s a code for that. If you catch the flu, there’s a code for that, too. Most of these codes are pretty standard fare for the medical field, and cover a […]
