ready FAIR Maturity Indicator Gen2-MI-I1A

General Information
The FAIR Maturity Indicator Gen2-MI-I1A measures the use of a formal, accessible, shared, and broadly applicable language for knowledge representation. The unambiguous communication of knowledge and meaning (what symbols are, and how they relate to one another) necessitates the use of languages that are capable of representing these concepts in a machine-readable manner. There is debate in the community about what languages would be considered "knowledge representation languages", as such this Maturity Indicator is broken into two sub-MIs (Gen2-FM-I1A and Gen2-FM-I1B). This MI takes a loose definition, that any kind of structured information is sufficient.
