The AXIS Conceptual-Reference-Model (Concepts and Implementation)


A new modular and tailorable approach for the semantic modeling of static and dynamic knowledge has been elaborated under the name “AXIS Conceptual Reference Model” (AXIS-CRM). AXIS organizes that modeling as networks of Autonomous Semantic Objects (ASO). In turn, each ASO is expressed as a network of Elementary Semantic Entities (ESE). The ASO wraps the instances and their models to become ‘autonomous’. AXIS-CRM has been implemented, experimented and validated by the creation of native ASO and by migrating ‘Flat’ records to ASO, by interchanging them and by constructing persistent archives. The AXIS-CRM and an associated Tool-kit will be soon released on the UNESCO Open Source Repository of the Memory of the World program.
