Semantic Pill 7

Semantic Pill 7



  • “Textons” is a term coined by our Darwin Methodology making reference to huge files of  homogeneous supposed content, for instance sets of 100,000 Web pages (HTML sources) supposedly dealing with the same subject chained as a single txt file;
  • DAS is a technology to directly (D) connects storage (S) to computers via buses: It has to be studied together with SAN and NAS, technologies that connect storages (S) to computer via networks (N);
  • Dashboards must be semantically studied within their “content of use” context, for instance BI, Business Intelligence; let’s deep a little about data curation:


"Data curation is the active and on-going management of data through its lifecycle of interest and usefulness to scholarship, science, and education; curation activities enable data discovery and retrieval, maintain quality, add value, and provide for re-use over time, University of Illinois' Graduate School of Library and Information Science.


  • DDS: Finally this pill is closed with Data Defined Storage, a sort of Data Centric architecture focusing in semantics minimizing aspects of media, type, time and place of data generation. The thesis is that if you have all your data well structured (data and metadata) you may find an appropriate and optimal solution to your data management problems.
