I’m on the lookout for a reputation/paradigm/analysis space and so on. that describes the notion of working with knowledge not within the conventional file-based sense, however as an alternative based mostly on semantics. I can finest clarify what I’m on the lookout for with an instance:
Textual content editors usually work file-based. I write some textual content, put it aside in a file and if I later wish to edit the textual content, I open this precise file. If I write a guide, I may need many recordsdata for every chapter that I’ve to cope with individually, although semantically they type a unit ‘guide’ and the truth that my guide is saved in separate recordsdata isn’t related when I’m writing the guide. It’s an implementation element.
Distinction this with for instance a sport engine corresponding to Unity. If I edit a stage for a sport, the sport engine may create a number of recordsdata to retailer the information for the extent in, however I as a person do not need to know these particulars. I’m working with the semantic unit ‘stage’ and let the pc determine the main points on the storage stage.
Does this idea (let customers work with semantic models as an alternative of recordsdata) have a reputation?
(It is a considerably imprecise query and I’m not positive if SE is the precise place for it, so be at liberty to redirect me)
