[emft-dev] Re: Sketch, Re: [modeling-pmc] GMF Restructure and GMP creation
Yes, I think on reflection that you are right. For the (far) future, I was thinking of it in the sense of a specific case of a soft/fuzzy mapping between concepts and formal models, as Ugo and I discussed on sketch forum. (BTW, there could be an analogous functionality for TMF. i.e. from NLP -> Formal Languages, in which users actually ended up "training" the mapping as they developed more complex descriptions.) For example, you might start out with simple CRC triples and then work up to a more formal structure from there... This is a very 'reasearchy' idea of course -- and as I said on the forum way out of scope -- but it would certainly be interesting! :) Anyway, as I said my intuition is that it is actually the backing model for the recognition of these patterns/gestures that is the most intriguing aspect of sketch.
