In the Cognition-guided Surgery project we help medical practitioners to annotate liver patient data using Semantic MediaWiki (Surgipedia). Source data are an continuously extended Excel-sheet as well as paper-based patient folders. In first experiments, we tried to extract semantics (e.g., sub-property-relationships) from the Excel-sheet and to automatically create properties, templates and forms using bots. However, there were several challenges (for instance, practitioners would not like to have templates and forms visually diverge from the original Excel-sheet; forms were too large; extracted semantics were not stable etc.) so that eventually we decided for a more practical approach: We added wikitext to the original Excel-sheet in Excel in an pre-processing step, we exported the Excel-sheet to HTML and copy-pasted the HTML to wiki forms and templates. In this talk, we also describe future challenges on which the presented approach has to be assessed.
