Humans are experts at understanding what they see. Similarity and analogy play a significant role in making sense of the visual world by forming analogies to similar images encountered previously. Yet, while these acts ...
Model-based analogy in innovative device design
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 1996)
Constructive Adaptive Visual Analogy
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2004-08-11)
Visual knowledge appears to be an important part of problem solving, but the role of visual knowledge in analogical problem solving is still somewhat mysterious. In this work I present the Constructive Adaptive Visual ...
From Shape to Function: Acquisition of Teleological Models from Design Drawings by Compositional Analogy
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2007-10-18)
Visual media are of great importance to designers. Understanding a new design, for example, often means understanding a drawing. From the perspective of artificial intelligence, this implies that automated knowledge ...
Interactive analogical retrieval: practice, theory and technology
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2012-08-24)
Analogy is ubiquitous in human cognition. One of the important questions related to understanding the situated nature of analogy-making is how people retrieve source analogues via their interactions with external environments. ...
Visual problem solving in autism, psychometrics, and AI: the case of the Raven's Progressive Matrices intelligence test
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-04-03)
Much of cognitive science research and almost all of AI research into problem solving has focused on the use of verbal or propositional representations. However, there is significant evidence that humans solve problems ...
Analogical problem evolution in biologically inspired design
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-01-08)
Biologically inspired design (BID) is a widespread and growing movement in modern design, pulled in part by the need for environmentally sustainable design and pushed partly by rapid advances in biology and the desire for ...
