The objectives of Semantic Information Modeling are to enable:

  • Interoperability of systems and information integration, through

    • System independent information models

    • A standardized formal language for expressing information, knowledge and requirements

    • A universal data exchange format

    • Natural language independency and automated translation

  • Applying logic reasoning on data, knowledge and requirements, for

    • Intelligent searching (Queries)

    • Computer augmented design, fabrication and maintenance

    • Computer augmented verification of requirements

This website introduces:

- A methodology for Semantic Information Modeling.

- The definition of Formal English, Formal Dutch and other formalized natural language variants.

Registered users have access to

  • A wiki guide on the development of Semantic Information Models in Formal English using the Gellish Semantic Modeling Methodology.

The webshop offers:

  • Formal Dictionary-Taxonomy-Ontology with Windows Search Engine (English) and Dutch (Nederlands).
    The dictionary-taxonomy-ontology and search engine software and user guide can be downloaded and installed on Windows PC's to search for terms and to navigate through the taxonomy-ontology.
    It comprises the vocabulary and definition that defines Formal English.
