What are “conceptual spaces”?

After having sketched what hides behind the term “Artificial General Intelligence” in my last post, today I would like to give a short introduction to conceptual spaces.

The term “conceptual spaces” describes a framework proposed by Peter Gärdenfors [1] that aims at a geometric representation of concepts. It is the starting point of my PhD research on concept formation.

But first things first: what is a concept?

My website says that I’m interested in Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). But what does this term actually refer to? There are a bunch of buzz words out there like “Artificial Intelligence”, “Machine Learning”, “Deep Learning”, “strong AI”, “weak AI”, and so on. “Artificial General Intelligence” is one of them (although probably not the most prominent one).

So let’s disentangle this a little bit: Continue reading “What is “Artificial General Intelligence”?”
