A cognitive model of the visual imagination will produce " incoherent " results when it adds elements to an imagined scene that come from different contexts (e.g., " computer " and " cheese " with " mouse "). We approach this problem with a model that infers coherence relations from co-occurrence probabilities of labels in images. We show that this… (More)
We describe the overall theory of the SOILIE model of the human imagination. In this description, we outline cognitive capacities for learning and storage, image component selection and placement, as well as analogical reasoning. The guiding theory behind SOILIE is that visual imagination is constrained by regularities in visual memories.
This paper proposes that decompression is an important and often overlooked component of cognition in all domains where compressive stimuli reduction is a requirement. We support this claim by comparing two compression representations, co-occurrence probabilities and holographic vectors, and two decompression procedures, top-n and Coherencer, on a context… (More)
