Abstract

The definition of knowledge is an augmentative topic in philosophy. We do not try to find out an explicit meaning of philosophical knowledge, but the most important thing is that we should know about what is knowledge in computer system, as called computational knowledge. In this chapter, we introduce some researches and definitions related to knowledge and computational knowledge. Ontology is a word used in both philosophy and computer system to describe the formalization of knowledge. We shall look into the definition of ontology in brief and also introduce its formalization methods in computer system.
