AI: LLMs + Ontology?

Every "language" needs "words", organized in a "vocabulary" 

The name "Ontology" is common in "knowledge management",
and got some attention in late 90's and early 2000's with attempt to establish "Semantic Web"

It is very much relevant even today, and strangely may be also "emerging" from self-organization 
"computing neural networks", in particular those language-oriented: LLMs

Here is an interesting article from a person with deep experience in the Ontology domain.

Ontology (information science) - Wikipedia

In information science, an ontology encompasses a representation, formal naming, and definitions of the categories, properties, and relations between the concepts, data, or entities that pertain to one, many, or all domains of discourse. More simply, an ontology is a way of showing the properties of a subject area and how they are related, by defining a set of terms and relational expressions that represent the entities in that subject area.
