  • People often use instructional analogies to introduce new concepts or explanations. Examples of these analogies can be found in instructional science texts and guides for inservice teachers. Building software that can understand instructional analogies has two potential benefits. First, it would enable an individual to convey new or existing qualitative concepts to a machine using analogies, thereby allowing them to explain ideas that may be cumbersome to describe otherwise. Second, a… CONTINUE READING
