Knowledge Base is a kind of database that stores the knowledge of a particular domain. It consists of a set of data (entities, entity properties, descriptions, and aliases), a conceptual model (ontology), and rules for reasoning over this data. The knowledge base uses the ontology to specify its structure (entity types and relationships) and classification scheme. In other words, the ontology, together with the set of instances of its classes, constitutes the knowledge base.
