** A '''body of knowledge</B> ('''BOK''' or '''BoK</B>) is the complete set of concepts, terms and activities that make up a professional domain, as defined by the relevant [[learned society]] or [[professional association]]. A body of knowledge is the accepted [[Ontology (information science)#Domain ontologies and upper ontologies|ontology for a specific domain]]. A BOK is more than simply a collection of terms; a professional reading list; a library; a website or a collection of websites; a description of professional functions; or even a collection of information.

** Sometimes, [[ontology]] is defined as a [[Body of Knowledge|body of knowledge]] describing some [[domain]], typically a [[common sense]] [[knowledge domain]], using a [[representation vocabulary]] as described above. In this case, an [[ontology]] is not only the [[vocabulary]], but the whole [["upper" knowledge base]] (including the vocabulary that is used to describe this [[knowledge base]]).        <P>        The typical example is the project [[CYC]] that defines its [[knowledge base]] as an [[ontology]] for any other [[knowledge based system]]. [[CYC]] is the name of a very large, [[multi-contextual knowledge base]] and [[inference engine]]. [[CYC]] is an early attempt to do [[symbolic AI]] on a [[massive scale]]by capturing [[common knowledge]] that is required to do [[task]]s that are trivial for people, but very hard for [[computer]]s. All of the [[knowledge]] in [[CYC]] is represented declaratively in the form of [[logical assertion]]s. [[CYC]] contains over 400,000 significant [[assertion]]s, which include [[simple statements of facts]], [[rule]]s about what conclusions to draw if certain statements of facts are satisfied, and rules about how to reason with certain types of facts and rules. New conclusions are derived by the [[inference engine]] using [[deductive reasoning]]. The [[CYC]] [[common sense knowledge]] can be used as a foundation of a [[knowledge base]] for any knowledge intensive system. In this sense, this [[Body of Knowledge|body of knowledge]] can be viewed as an [[ontology]] of the [[knowledge base]] of [[the system]].
