  • J. Sowa
  • Computer Science
  • Computational Linguistics
  • 2001
TLDR
This chapter discusses knowledge representation, meaning, purpose, context, and agents in the context of ontology, as well as some examples of knowledge acquisition and sharing. Expand
Extending and Formalizing the Framework for Information Systems Architecture
TLDR
The ISA framework and its recent extensions are presented and it is shown how it can be formalized in the notation of conceptual graphs. Expand
Construing Experience through Meaning: A Language-based Approach to Cognition by M. A. K. Halliday and Christian M. I. M. Matthiessen
  • J. Sowa
  • Computer Science
  • Computational Linguistics
  • 2001
TLDR
Halliday and Matthiessen present a comprehensive survey of semantics and its relationships to syntax and cognition, and contrast the systemic approach with a view of knowledge representation as a "piecemeal accumulation of concepts with "no overall organization". Expand

Conceptual Graphs for a Data Base Interface
  • J. Sowa
  • Computer Science
  • IBM J. Res. Dev.
  • 1 July 1976
TLDR
This paper defines a formalism, called conceptual graphs, that can describe data according to the user's view and access dataaccording to the system's view that can represent functional dependencies in the data base and support inferences and computations that are not explicit in the initial query.

Relating Diagrams to Logic
  • J. Sowa
  • Computer Science
  • ICCS
  • 4 August 1993
TLDR
This paper shows how many popular diagrams can be translated to conceptual graphs and thence into other systems of logic, such as the Knowledge Interchange Format (KIF). Expand
