Parameterized Frames and Conceptual Spaces

Conceptual Spaces and Frames concern the ways in which cognitive systems represent information. Our research aims at comparing and integrating both approaches. Special attention is devoted to how systems learn and represent natural categories.

As part of the project, I am organizing a workshop on the cognitive and ontological dimensions of naturalness. The workshop will take place on May 22 and 23, 2023 at the Haus der Universität, for more information click here.
