Development and administration of independent k.LAB nodes

This page contains a brief outline of its final contents, which will be completed in 2018.

Semantic modeling is built on the premise that each user’s computer can access and use diverse, semantically annotated, distributed data and models on the web.

Data, models, and other infrastructure are contained on a networked integrated modelling node. The core IM development team currently maintains an IM node, but the development of additional, networked nodes will be supported and encouraged.

An IM node provides its host with full administrative control over locally hosted data and model resources, which can be shared with the rest of the IM network to the appropriate extent. Members of the IM Partnership will have the opportunity to set up their own nodes, with support from the IM development team.
