Universal Metadata Standard

Consciousness is based on the association of notions or a neural network. Similarly, the creation of the next generation Internet (semantic web) is impossible without attributes that allow the semantic association of documents and their integration into an information context. To achieve these goals, the Universal Metadata Standard (UMS) may serve as a basis for documentography and is functionally required for interpretation of documents by automatic operating systems.

For each attribute of a universal metadata standard one should determine an option form, define it, and formally describe it. The content of each option should correspond to the rules based on which the catalog of permissible systematic designations could be complied. For example, document authorship should be unambiguous and based on an authors’ list. A document’s origin should be based on a list of organizations. A document type (text, figure, photograph, video, or sound) should be followed by the description (summary) and typological attributes that are characteristic for each document type. Every document should comprise a list of objects or events that are reflected in it (biological species, astronomic object, person or group of individuals, organization, scientific paper, etc.). Presently, the classification basis of such a list exists (Encyclopedia of Life, International Plant Names Index, Catalogue of Astronomical Objects, ICD, etc.) and should be used in the UMS.
