Metaphor in computer science

T.R. Colburn, G.M. Shute
2008 Journal of Applied Logic  
We argue that computer science metaphors provide a conceptual framework in which to situate constantly emerging new ontologies in computational environments.  ...  The language of computer science is laced with metaphor.  ...  So the role of metaphor in computer science is intimately related to computer science ontology. Ontology, in its traditional, philosophical meaning, is the study of what there is.  ...

Metaphorisms in Programming [chapter]

José N. Oliveira
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Context Metaphorisms Calculating metaphorisms Hylomorphisms References "Metaphoric" software science?  ...  (in our field) • "polynomial" functor • vector "addition" (algebraic structure sharing) and so is computing terminology in general • ... stack, queue, pipe, memory, driver, ... in a true cognitive sense  ...  Example: for f = (|k|), ker f is congruence for initial algebra in, since ker f = (|ker f · in|) is an instance of (20), cf. ker f · in = ker f · in · (F ker f ).  ...

Beyond Navigation as Metaphor [chapter]

David Benyon
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Just as Lynch's aim in trying to specify the basic, discrete units of (urban) space have had a significant impact on urban planning and design, so the metaphorical use of the concept of navigation in information  ...  Just as Lynch's aim i n trying to specify the basic, discrete units of (urban) space have had a significant impact on urban planning and design, so the metaphorical use of the concept of navigation in  ...  In a similar vein we may argue that 'Navigation of Information Space' is not (just) a metaphor, it is a paradigm shift.  ...

Conventional metaphor and the lexicon [chapter]

James H. Martin
1992 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Metaphor and other forms of non-literal language are essential parts of language which have direct bearing on theories of lexical semantics.  ...  The metaphorical use of the word in reflects a systematic metaphorical structuring of computer processes as enclosures. (24) I am in Emacs.  ...  This approach follows on the metaphor work of Lakoff and Johnson [Lakoff and Johnson, 1980] and the computational approaches to metaphor described in [Jacobs, 1985 , Norvig, 1987 .  ...

Chemical Reaction Metaphor in Distributed Learning Environments [chapter]

Hong Lin, Chunsheng Yang
2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents an application of Chemical Reaction Metaphor (CRM) in agent-based distributed learning systems.  ...  The suitability of using CRM to model multi-agent systems is justified by CRM's capacity in catching dynamic features of multi-agent systems in an e-learning environment.  ...  We find that in chemical reaction metaphor, architectural properties of a multi-agent system can be expressed succinctly and precisely.  ...

Metaphoric Gestures: Towards Grounded Mental Spaces [chapter]

Margot Lhommet, Stacy Marsella
2014 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
We propose a computational model of the influence of conceptual metaphors on gestures that maps from mental state representations of ideas to their expression in concrete, physical metaphoric gestures.  ...  This is especially apparent in the case of metaphors and metaphoric gestures.  ...  For example, the Structure Mapping Theory computes similarity by detecting a similar structure in source and target elements [7] .  ...

A Metaphor for Personalized Television Programming [chapter]

Konstantinos Chorianopoulos, Diomidis Spinellis
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The proposed metaphor is tested in the design of a personalized advertising service.  ...  Traditional human-computer interaction settings involve a taskoriented approach where the human interacts with an application to accomplish a particular goal.  ...  The Virtual Channel Metaphor Strong evidence of the importance of a metaphor as a basis for human-computer interaction is provided by O'Brien et al.  ...

Counting the costs and benefits of metaphor [chapter]

Chris Condon, Stephan Keuneke
1995 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
It has been demonstrated that the use of suitable metaphors in the user service interface can have a dramatic effect on the way in which the user perceives the services, depending on the category of metaphor  ...  Interactional metaphors led to the highest long term usage in most industry sectors, although the construction industry showed higher usage with spatial metaphors.  ...  [AND94] The second factor concerns the categorisation of metaphors and the manner in which the choice of metaphor category affects what the user is aware of.  ...

Tasking robots through multimodal interfaces: The "Coach Metaphor" [chapter]

Luc Julia
1998 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For the past few years, SRI International have followed an approach based on the "Coach Metaphor".  ...  To clarify our views, we will give an overview of the technologies in use, such as the agent architecture, the speech and gesture recognizers, and the robot controller.  ...  Thanks also to Samir Gherbi, from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne in Switzerland, for the time he spent programming our interfaces.  ...

The Brain-Computer Metaphor Debate Is Useless: A Matter of Semantics

Blake A. Richards, Timothy P. Lillicrap
2022 Frontiers in Computer Science  
It is commonly assumed that usage of the word "computer" in the brain sciences reflects a metaphor. However, there is no single definition of the word "computer" in use.  ...  In fact, based on the usage of the word "computer" in computer science, a computer is merely some physical machinery that can in theory compute any computable function.  ...  Therefore, according to the use-based definition of "computer" in computer science, brains are literally computers. There is no metaphor.  ...

Jean-Pierre Banâtre, Thierry Priol, Yann Radenac
2008 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Different programming languages can be used to be the "glue" between services in an orchestration.  ...  This article shows how a programming language inspired by a chemical metaphor can be used to program service orchestration.  ...  In HOCL, computation is seen as reactions between molecules in a chemical solution.  ...
