Individual

Home / Glossary / Individual

In the Cyc ontology, an individual-denoting constant is a constant that denotes a single object, rather than a collection of objects. For example, the constant #$Snoopy denotes a specific dog, while the collection-denoting constant #$Dog denotes the collection of all dogs. Sometimes individual-denoting CycL constants are casually referred to as “individuals.”
