Semantics is a branch of linguistics and logic concerned with meaning and the semantic engine is a set of tools helping researchers generate machine-accessible meaning for their data.
One of the first tools of the semantic engine will be the ability to create machine-actionable data schemas using Overlays Capture Architecture (OCA), an open standard developed by the Swiss non-profit Human Colossus Foundation.
You can access the Semantic Engine online, download templates, and create your own machine-actionable data schemas.
