The Language for

the Information Flow Framework



Associated with the Information Flow Framework is a markup language (XML application) of the same name. The markup language IFF incorporates ideas from other knowledge representation languages such as RDF/S, OKBC, OIL, CGIF and CycL. IFF has a principled model-theoretic foundation, based upon the logic of Information Flow and expressed in terms of category theory. IFF is the sequel to the markup language pair OML/CKML.











We have begun the transformation of all of the OML/CKML, WAVE and Bioinformatics pages to the Information Flow Framework. This will take several months, not being finished until September or October.
