Ontology within AI.

Hey all,

I am going to open up one of my previously answered questions again.  I've been doing a lot of research in this area, but have yet seem to grasp the concept.

I've been tasked to research and become very familiar with Ontology in the AI area, and then I need to be able to turn that knowledge into something that I can train our newly developed AI team.

Sooooooo, I always come across that Ontology is...."The formal representation of knowledge within a domain".  But how can someone with absolutely NO experience understand what is actually means, especially within AI?

Are there any good (elementary style, Ontology 101, Ontology for Dummies) examples that any of the experts here can point me to or explain?

One thing I do understand is that Protege is the leading Ontology modeling application.

Thank you everyone and hope you all have a great holiday season.

Hi,

I searched Google for < "artificial intelligence" Ontology relationship -owl > and found this article: OIL: An Ontology Infrastructure for the Semantic Web.

Another: Supporting ontological analysis of taxonomic relationships

You can also find information with references on Wikipedia.

I woul take the approach or finding out what I could on both subjects (ontology & AI) then on the relationship between the two.

Thank you.  I think after about 30 websites and a few days of research, I now have a pretty good understanding of Ontology.
