Universal Semantic Framework
May also be referred to as Shared Framework and Top Concepts.
The GraphBase Universal Semantic Framework is a basic upper-level ontology. Think of it as a graph-structured DNS for data. It's a single set of references that we hope can ultimately be used to reliably locate any concept and any piece of data in any domain.
The Universal Semantic Framework is subject to a Creative Commons Attribution 3.0 Unported License. Use it any way you like - just mention where it came from. The framework was derived intially from Wordnet, so your use of it may also be subject to this licence
Contact us if you'd like to learn more about how this framework can be used. Whether it be Natural Language Processing or Automated Schema-Matching - GraphBase and a variation of the Semantic Framework can help..
