language-independent knowledge base for concepts and relationships
Demo site (select English, then search for "apple")
The zim table.
The zam table.
"apple is a fruit" is encoded as 5-4-6, but this knowledge is not tightly coupled to the English language. The 5-4-6 relationship remains true in whatever language.
It only has the appearance of English when we throw the concept of 1 (in english) at it.
51-41-61 => "apple is a fruit"
52-42-62 => "eple er en frukt"
Hopefully this model of encoding knowledge can reduce the burden of translating knowledge to different languages. Let's say an expert on a topic contributes some knowledge, but that expert speaks a different language than a person seeking that knowledge, etc.
That's the idea I'm hoping to explore with this
