What is yizitong
Yizitong is a Chinese knowledge system, based on the theory of Knowledge-oriented Information System and the Chinese character analysis. It mainly consists of a Knowledge Tree and a Chinese Character Tree.
The Knowledge Tree is a hierarchical tree composed of various information nodes, with its root being the Knowledge node, linked by parent-child relationships. Knowledge is a structured and hierarchical piece of information, and it is associated with certain spacial, temporal and other parental background information.
The Chinese Character Tree is based on occurrence data from statistic analysis of Chinese texts. It links most of the nodes of the Knowledge Tree with historical literature works.
Yizitong is a dynamical Chinese knowledge platform. It will evolve by interacting with users, through data entry, editing, typing and clicking. It might acquire certain level of human intelligence in the near future.
