Information Flow: A Web of Constraints on the Giant Global Graph

Information flows on the Giant Global graph because of regularities. Those regularities are the result of constraints on parts of the Giant Global Graph. The flow of information based on these constraints means there are WEBS of data, not THE web of data. Rick provides a number of recommendations for Linked Data.

1896: The Year We Did Linked Data Right

Sometimes we already have things right. Such is the case with RDF and Existential Graphs of Charles Sanders Peirce, or so said Pat Hayes of the Institute for Human Machine Cognition in his invited keynotes at ISWC 2009 called BLOGIC: Now What’s in a Link.

Peirce’s Semiotics in the Alignment of Formal Specifications Using Shared Concepts

Demonstrates the value of Perice’s semiotics in ontology alignment and unification. It shows that a) OWL SameAs is a degenerate case of using a global semiotic domain ontology based on Peirce’s thirdness or mediation; b) the semiotic domain provides deeper insights into how machine understanding can model human understanding; and c) how to use type inferencing with the Pellet description logic reasoner. There’s much more to be done than what this small example demonstrates. This example is just the beginning of developing a semiotic domain.
