Federated knowledge graphs/interlace

From Meta, a Wikimedia project coordination wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

In the world of knowledge graphs, the connective tissue between sources and understandings around a topic can be described as an interlay, and a collection of interlays constitutes an Interlace. This is an aggregation of activity and possibility, connecting each concept or project to what is, what is wanted, and what could be. It includes the colorful flows of ducts and pipelines, the relationships between layers, multispecifications for formats and processes, and other requirements for interlegibility and operation.
