Computational Models of Analogy-making Representation-building Retrieval

  title={Computational Models of Analogy-making Representation-building Retrieval},

Analogy-making is the process of finding or constructing a common relational structure in the descriptions of two situations or domains and making inferences by transferring knowledge from the familiar domain (thèbase' or`source') to the unfamiliar domain (thètarget'), thus enriching our knowledge about the latter.
