In “conventional functional” systems, semantics are provided from without, by users (by “convention”), and machines have no independent understanding of anything.
Besides ontologies, you need semantics (“axioms”) to help machines tell whether we would judge assertions to be true, partly true, false, or more or less probable. This is shared understanding between us and machines.
Besides ontologies and axioms you need a representation of context.
