Expressive power of Topic Maps, commonly perceived as method for indexing of information resources, places the standard very close to artificial intelligence and knowledge modelling. Topic Maps resemble semantic networks and conceptual graphs, but offer more - a unique, standards-based way of encoding and exchange of the knowledge.
