Analogical reasoning is really a strong mode for drawing believable conclusions and fixing difficulties. it's been the subject of an incredible variety of works through philosophers, anthropologists, linguists, psychologists, and laptop scientists. As such, it's been early studied in synthetic intelligence, with a specific renewal of curiosity within the final decade.
The current quantity presents a based view of present examine traits on computational methods to analogical reasoning. It starts off with an outline of the sphere, with an intensive bibliography.
The 14 accumulated contributions conceal a wide scope of matters. First, using analogical proportions and analogies is defined and mentioned in a variety of ordinary language processing difficulties, in addition to in automatic deduction. Then, varied formal frameworks for dealing with analogies are awarded, facing case-based reasoning, heuristic-driven thought projection, common sense reasoning approximately incomplete rule bases, logical proportions prompted by means of similarity and dissimilarity signs, and analogical proportions in lattice buildings. finally, the quantity studies case reports and discussions in regards to the use of similarity judgments and the method of analogy making, at paintings in IQ assessments, creativity or different cognitive tasks.
This quantity gathers totally revised and multiplied types of papers provided at a global workshop‚ in addition to invited contributions. All chapters have benefited of a radical peer assessment process.
