Knowledge Architecture Paradigm Overview

  • As minds and computers only manage and share information and information is identified and classified into resources that map everything we know, manage, and share.
  • Unique identification is required to represent and manage knowledge resources.
  • Classification and its associated resource defining meta-data are dynamic (e.g. run-time) resource, managed as any other resource, not a “compile-time” construct.
  • Resources are expandable quality collections.
  • Qualities are expandable property collections.
  • Properties can be any atomic type, including executable context-aware rules, work-flow patterns and references to other resources.
  • Qualified relation resources aggregate subject and object resources into more complex (compound) resources.
  • Relations are directional and qualified.
  • Relations qualify capabilities and enable behavior.
  • Work-flow relations orchestrate resource contributions (e.g. behavior).
  • Most relations are time-based with period qualities.
  • Processes are complex time-based work-flow relation resources.
  • Services are processes with a formal service interface (e.g. service qualities).
  • Entitlement is a resource relation quality type set used to define rights, privileges, and responsibilities.
  • Qualities change over time, as do resources and relations.
