Semantic Knowledge Source Integration

Home / Glossary / Semantic Knowledge Source Integration

Semantic Knowledge Source Integration (SKSI) is a means of extending the Cyc KB by allowing information from structured knowledge sources — databases, triple stores, APIs — to be hooked into Cyc as if they were “external” assertions and used just like assertions in the KB. It relies on a model of both the physical structure of the data source as well as the meaning of the data contained within. The models used in SKSI are largely declarative, meaning they are expressed in a logic-based, machine readable formalism.

For more information on SKSI, see Intro to SKSI.
