I recently learned about Ologs, which are basically "category theory for normal people". These are very useful for knowledge representation. I am now in the making of a blog post about how to make them and how to translate ologs to Haskell code.

@Vetii I'm curious, what advantage is there to be gained in thinking about knowledge representation this way? Is there an explicit end goal?

@j2kun I do not know if it is the global best representation, but it is the best I know :)

For instance, when comparing Ologs with entity-relationship diagrams, I find Ologs a lot simpler (objects and arrows instead of many different node types). So I think the semantics are clearer, Ologs help me ask the right questions, so to speak (do I have functions between things, or simply relations?). However, keep in mind that I am by no means an expert :)
