Hi Community! And specifically probably Denny?
Did Wikidata ever explore directly storing or having the ability to store
weak/strong subclasses as in Prototype theory
A Guppy <https://www.wikidata.org/wiki/Q178202> is:
not typical of PET
typical of PET FISH
typical of FISH
Or was the decision to simply allow usage of all kinds of classification
schemes and taxonomies simply through the direct use of introduced
properties like SKOS:related etc. ?
It seems it was the latter?
But I couldn't find where some of those initial modeling decisions were
made and written down.
Perhaps they never were written but only voiced by Denny and others in the
early stages of design?
I poked around through Wikidata Events and even noticeboards, Project chat,
etc. but could not find some of those very, very early design decisions.
It would be nice to have a place to look with a link to a page in the
Community portal that says "History of Wikidata's design and early
collected meetings, notes, design documents, recordings"
(Concept Disambiguation (Pseudo Sense Morphs) are my basis to understand
more about some of the underpinning designs of the data model and knowledge
organization, since I have tons of really great ideas forming. With
potential needs later on to do some strong concept mapping <-> sense in
lots of ways, like classifier systems that borrow from computer vision
research such as "shape dictionaries" against Abstract Wikipedia Renderers
and Functions, with potential hints for Constructors, as it begins to be a
realized part of knowledge exchange between communities)
