Semantic Knowledge Base is using large number of knowledge representation methods.

What is it about?

Semantic Knowledge Base is as knowledge representation system that uses different structures. It is build from number of modules like ontology, semantic network, language representation or space and time module. The system is designed apart from any language. SKB introduces synergy in coding term-concept relation. Term is a part of language while concept represents part of reality.

Why is it important?

The idea of Semantic Knowledge Base is that depending on the type of knowledge we want to represent in computer system appropriate structures and techniques has to be chosen. There is no universal structure that may be used.

In my opinion this publication opens the dispute on knowledge representation future. In most cases researchers focus on one solution and try to prove that it solves all problems in the field. It is not the case, we have to be openminded and be ready to chose solution based on demand.

How to combine different knowledge representation methods? Simply by defining their competence areas and use them. We tried to show that it is possible. You don't have to worship just one solution but you may choose whichever suits you for a moment. The paper force you to reconsider if teh path you have chosen in terms of knowledge representation technique is a proper one or maybe you need to reconsider it.
