A Merging Java Topic Maps Engine

Presentation, was published by Sven Krosse at 2010-09-30

This presentation is about the new generation Topic Maps engine MaJorToM.

The MaJorToM project was founded with the goal of implementing a light-weight, merging and flexible Topic Maps engine satisfying the different business use cases. Current Topic Maps engines cannot satisfy the whole spectrum of requirements, like a listening of information streams or the guarantee of a complete chain of evidence. To realize that MaJorToM provide an extended interface to access the additional features and information resources stored by the underlying Topic Maps store. The interface definition based on the Topic Maps API (TMAPI) version 2.0.2 to enable a downward compatibility to all applications based on it and minimize the migration step.

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.
