A computational framework for concept formation for a situated design agent
TLDR
We propose a framework for concept formation that draws on a structure of a design agent that includes sensors, perceptors and conceptors that interact with each other and the external and internal environment of the agent to produce the situation that is contingent basis for the formation and use of concepts.
