COMMENTS

Or, number of families of subsets of {1, ..., n} that are closed under intersection and contain both the universe and the empty set.
An ACI algebra or semilattice is a system with a single binary, idempotent, commutative and associative operation.
Also the number of setsystems covering n vertices that are closed under union. The BIInumbers of these setsystems are given by A326875.  Gus Wiseman, Aug 01 2019
Number of strict closure operators on a set of n elements, where the closure operator is said to be strict if the empty set is closed.  Tian Vlasic, Jul 30 2022

EXAMPLE

From Gus Wiseman, Aug 01 2019: (Start)
The a(3) = 45 setsystems with {} and {1,2,3} that are closed under intersection are the following ({} and {1,2,3} not shown). The BIInumbers of these setsystems are given by A326880.
