Although conceptual modeling has been integral to information systems development and use, much of its potential remains underutilized. This is evidenced by the lack of a broad adoption of modeling concepts beyond traditional database design and process modeling applications. In this paper, we propose a fundamentally new perspective on conceptual modeling that integrates artificial intelligence (AI) components with conceptual modeling. This perspective enables us to go beyond passive conceptual modeling representations, such as diagrams, to design conceptual modeling systems that have the capability to learn and evolve.
