I happy to share with you the result of many years of work.
In 2011, I was intrigued by Good Old Fashioned AI (GOFAI). I was willing to build a some kind of Artificial Intelligence system. I did not know that I did not know.
I was not confortable with SQL and wanted to do all the code in my favorite language, willy nilly: Python. Also, at that time, let’s be honest, PostgreSQL was not as great as today. I got into MongoDB, then I was inspired by ThinkerPop (nowadays known as Janus Graph) and Neo4J, so called, knowledge graphs.
It was somewhat good, but not good enough. The developer experience was missing some ease of use. At that point, I started working with Python 2.7 module called bsddb. It is a joy. You can store WHATEVER you want, the way you want. Some time has passed, many bits were put together, and later fall into pieces of nothingness.
Fast forward. Today is different.
- copernic is meant to be a scalable wikidata.
- copernic is powered by FoundationDB, Python and Django
- copernic is versioned triple store
- copernic is a work-in-progress
- http://copernic.space is mostly empty (at the time of writing).
