E–book [Qualitative Representations] ☆ Kenneth D Forbus

An argument that ualitative representationssymbolic representations that *Carve Continuous Phenomena Into Meaningful Unitsare Central *continuous phenomena into meaningful unitsare central human cognitionIn this book Kenneth Forbus proposes that ualitative representations hold the key to one of the deepest mysteries of cognitive science how we reason and representations hold the key to one of the deepest mysteries of cognitive science how we reason and about the continuous phenomena surrounding us Forbus argues that ualitative representationssymbolic representations that carve continuous #phenomena into meaningful unitsare central to human cognition ualitative representations provide a basis #into meaningful unitsare central to human cognition ualitative representations provide a basis commonsense reasoning because they enable practical reasoning wit. Qualitative RepresentationsH very little data; this makes ualitative representations a useful component of natural language semantics ualitative representations also provide a foundation for expert reasoning a useful component of natural language semantics ualitative representations also provide a foundation for expert reasoning #science and engineering by making explicit the broad categories of things that might happen and # and engineering by making explicit the broad categories of things that might happen and causal models that help uide the application of uantitative knowledge as needed ualitative representations #are important for creating humanlike artificial intelligence systems with capabilities for spatial reasoning vision uestion answering and understanding #important for creating humanlike artificial intelligence systems with capabilities for spatial reasoning vision uestion answering and understanding languageForbus discusses among other topics basic ideas of knowle. Dge representation and reasoning; ualitative ualitative simulation reasoning about change; compositional modeling; spatial reasoning; and learning conceptual change His argument is notable both presenting an approach to ualitative reasoning in which analogical reasoning and learning play crucial roles and for marshaling a wide variety of evidence including the performance of AI systems Cognitive scientists will find Forbus's account of ualitative representations illuminating; AI scientists will value Forbus's new approach to ualitative representations and the overview he offer.
