A Neural Network Model of Concept-influenced Segmentation

  title={A Neural Network Model of Concept-influenced Segmentation},
  author={Robert L. Goldstone},
Several models of categorization assume that fixed perceptual representations are combined together to determine categorizations. This research explores the possibility that categorization experience alters, rather than simply uses, descriptions of objects. Based on results from human experiments, a model is presented in which a competitive learning network is first given categorization training, and then is given a subsequent segmentation task, using the same network weights. Category learning… CONTINUE READING
