Web semantics and Ontology
I note that 'relation' is considered a property of subject. However the RDF triples show the predicate (the relation or a link) as an independent element. I see a lot of advantage of treating LINK also as an independent full-fledged object with its own properties as in 'Association Class of UML'.
I am investigating how to model 'meaning' and incorporate it in the ontologies and knowledge bases in a manner that can be 'acted out' or 'executed'. I find this facility is NOT available still except in simple cases.
Please take a look at my PPTs
Pentagon of Meaning and Meaning is Mediated
on slideshare and let me know when we can discuss.
