A Functional Approach to Library Construction for Conceptual Reasoning

MSc Thesis Defense by:

David MacMillan

Date:  Tuesday, August 16th, 2015
Time:  2:00 pm - 4:00pm
Location: LT 3105

 Abstract: Conceptual Spaces is an emerging theory of knowledge representation that describes relationships between concepts, contexts and observations.  Due to its mathematical and functional nature, this theory is quite useful for automated reasoning.  However, to the best of our knowledge, there are no software frameworks or packages that allow us to explore the computational applications of this theory.  In this thesis, we propose to design, develop and test a library containing conceptual data structures and operators, primarily for use in automated reasoning and decision support systems.
