The cognitive interface to the
Organizations that manage information systems (companies,
services, corporative libraries, etc.) invest immense resources in the research
methods to represent and manage contents and documents. Most of
these systems which are already operational
present the following

Some information systems
might require the development of a real ontology, which is not
consistent with the hierarchical principle of most available
It is obvious that the ideal system resulting from
research and trials is a knowledge based system, not solely to follow a
fad, but because the correspondence between contents and knowledge is maximal
when a cognitive interface is used. This
is built on a semantic network, to which the node documents to be managed and
their attributes are associated to specifically
describe each topic.
Some further reasons that emphasize this convenience are:
there's no need for analysis, design, etc.
The unique system “cost”
is the interactive construction of the knowledge base, that can be
built at a pace to be decided by the KB administrator.
The interface (the
semantic network itself) can be extended or modified in real time.
The KB can be protected
against non-authorized access or modification.
The semantic network can
be distributed into levels.
Each topic can be
explained by means of an internal text, image or video.
Related documents can be
of any type or origin and reside anywhere in the intranet or
