Topic Maps describe a way in which complex relationships between abstract concepts and real-world resources can be described and interchanged using a standard XML syntax. If that sounds like something you don’t need to know about… think again. In this episode Ron gets down to practical applications of topic maps with Kal Ahmed as discussed in Kal’s article Applied Topic Maps in Microsoft Architecture Journal 6.

As a former information scientist, I am fascinated since 1999 by the capabilities for building Topic Maps-based knowledge systems having the potential to augment human mind. One can model arbitrary knowledge organization systems, deal with semantic heterogeneity, collocate all facts about one subject in one logical place, and with TMQL have semantic retrieval on federated semantic networks. Therefore I expect bright prospects for business concepts building on the exchange of such knowledge snippets via semantic knowledge services.
