The ARC project (for Architecture Represented Computationally) is an attempt to reproduce in computer form the architectural historian's mental model of the Gothic cathedral. This model includes the background information necessary to understand a natural language architectural description. Our first task is to formalize the description of Gothic cathedrals(More)
— This paper introduces a work in progress on a new research topic for artificial intelligence. It presents the first stages of research that investigates the capacities of AI to understand the architectural rules that define historic architecture: specifically those of Gothic cathedrals. Gothic architecture has its own logic. It follows rules that are(More)
Most approaches to statistical stylometry have concentrated on lexical features, such as relative word frequencies or type-token ratios. Syntactic features have been largely ignored. This work attempts to fill that void by introducing a technique for authorship attribution based on dependency grammar. Syntactic features are extracted from texts using a(More)
This working paper reports the results so far of the ARC Project (Architecture Represented Computationally), whose goal is to reproduce in computer form the architectural historian's mental model of the Gothic cathedral. In addition to being major monuments of cultural heritage, Gothic cathedrals are particularly well suited for logical analysis because(More)
