In artificial intelligence (AI), a conceptual graph (CG) is a formalism for representing knowledge in a structured and graph-based way. It is a type of semantic network that captures the relationships between concepts through nodes and edges. Conceptual graphs were introduced by John F. Sowa in the late 1970s as a way to represent the meaning of natural language expressions in a form that could be used for automated reasoning and knowledge processing.

A conceptual graph is composed of nodes and edges that form a bipartite graph:

**Concept Nodes (C)**: Denoted by rectangles. Represents entities.**Relation Nodes (R)**: Denoted by circles. Represents abstract concepts.

Each edge in the graph connects a concept node to a relation node, and each relation node is connected to one or more concept nodes.

The first step is to find the concept nodes and relation nodes.

**Concept Nodes**:

**[Motorbike]**represents the concept of a motorbike.**[Handle]**representing the concept of a handle.

**Relation Node**:

**(Has)**representing the relationship between the motorbike and the handle.

We can also write it as:

∀x (x:Motorbike) → ∃y (y:Handle)

[ (x) --(Has)--> (y) ]

The same can be represented in First Order Predicate Logic as:

∀x : Motorbike(x)→∃y : Handle(y)∧Has(x,y)
