A Resource-Driven Approach for Anchoring Linguistic Resources to Conceptual Spaces
TLDR
The ttcs system, so named after Terms To Conceptual Spaces, is introduced, that exploits a resource-driven approach relying on BabelNet, NASARI and ConceptNet to produce a specific type of vector-based semantic representation. Expand
Dual PECCS: a cognitive system for conceptual representation and categorization
TLDR
An advanced version of Dual-PECCS, a cognitively-inspired knowledge representation and reasoning system aimed at extending the capabilities of artificial systems in conceptual categorization tasks, is presented and integrated and tested into two cognitive architectures, ACT-R and CLARION, implementing different assumptions on the underlying invariant structures governing human cognition. Expand
A Computational Framework for Concept Representation in Cognitive Systems and Architectures: Concepts as Heterogeneous Proxytypes
TLDR
A novel theoretical hypothesis is provided for the debate about concepts in cognitive sciences by providing unexplored connections between different theories and a computational characterization of the problem of concept representation in cognitively inspired artificial systems and in cognitive architectures is sketched. Expand
Artwork creation by a cognitive architecture integrating computational creativity and dual process approaches
TLDR
The paper highlights the role of the interaction between S1 and S2 processes, modulated by the resolution level which focuses the attention of the creative agent by broadening or narrowing the exploration of novel solutions, or even drawing the solution from a set of already made associations. Expand
Prototypes Vs Exemplars in Concept Representation
TLDR
It seems that human beings employ both prototype and exemplar based representations in order to represent non classical concepts, and it is suggested that a similar, hybrid prototype-exemplar based approach could be useful also in the field of formal ontology technology. Expand
The knowledge level in cognitive architectures: Current limitations and possible developments
TLDR
An analysis of two problematic aspects affecting the representational level of cognitive architectures, namely: the limited size and the homogeneous typology of the encoded and processed knowledge are identified and characterized. Expand
Coupling conceptual modeling and rules for the annotation of dramatic media
TLDR
An ontological approach to the domain of drama is presented by mapping the intentions of the characters onto the actions actually performed and by appraising the emotion felt by the characters in the drama by encoding respectively the conceptual model and the SWRL rules. Expand
Building Narrative Connections among Media Objects in Cultural Heritage Repositories
TLDR
A semantic framework for narrative-based access to digital media repositories in the field of cultural heritage is proposed, providing a powerful conceptual tool for the description and navigation of resources. Expand
Ontology-Based Visualisation of Cultural Heritage
TLDR
This paper addresses the representation and access to the intangible cultural heritage, that has received much attention recently and typically lacks a physical counterpart. Expand
