The triptych of conceptual modeling

Heinrich C. Mayr, Bernhard Thalheim
2020 Journal of Software and Systems Modeling  
AbstractWe understand this paper as a contribution to the "anatomy" of conceptual models.  ...  We derive a number of open research questions that should be answered to complete the anatomy of conceptual models.  ...  We use it here to denote the outcome of cognitive processes but not the structure of the processes.  ...

Metaphor and Cultural Models in Translation

Rahman Veisi Hasar, Manoochehr Tavangar, Vali Rezai
2013 International Journal of Linguistics  
The objective of this paper is to investigate the relationship holding between metaphor and cultural models within the context of interlingual translation.  ...  For this purpose, we draw on the concept of 'experiential equivalence' in the case of metaphor translation and on that of cultural models as intersubjective manifestations of culture in the speaker's mind  ...  Metaphor and Cultural Models Cognitive linguistics maintains that idealized cognitive models (ICM) are definable as complex structured wholes which serve to organize the knowledge and experience of human  ...

Mental Modeler: A Fuzzy-Logic Cognitive Mapping Modeling Tool for Adaptive Environmental Management

Steven A. Gray, Stefan Gray, Linda J. Cox, Sarah Henly-Shepard
2013 2013 46th Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences  
In this paper we report on the design and anticipated use of a participatory modeling tool based in fuzzy-logic cognitive mapping (FCM) called 'Mental Modeler' which makes the mental models of stakeholders  ...  Including stakeholders in model building and analysis allows decision-makers to understand important conceptual components in the environmental systems being managed, builds trust and common understanding  ...  Software users simply use a "plus sign" to add concepts to be structured into their model.  ...

Meaningful Models: Utilizing Conceptual Structure to Improve Machine Learning Interpretability [article]

Nick Condry
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Here we show how the mind's construction of concepts and meaning can be used to create more interpretable machine learning models.  ...  By proposing a novel method of classifying concepts, in terms of 'form' and 'function', we elucidate the nature of meaning and offer proposals to improve model understandability.  ...  Using a relational model of meaning, we will propose a novel method of classifying concepts according to their structure and function within a given context.  ...

Cognitive Mechanisms of Conceptual Modelling [chapter]

Ilona Wilmont, Sytse Hengeveld, Erik Barendsen, Stijn Hoppenbrouwers
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Eventually, a thorough understanding of modelling cognition can help us to provide better cognitive support for modellers.  ...  Conceptual modelling involves many higher order cognitive processes, such as relational reasoning and abstraction, which are based on integration and maintenance of information.  ...  Thus, the context dynamically influences the interpretation and structure of a concept [25] .  ...

Extending sense-making models with ideas from cognition and learning theories

Pengyi Zhang, Dagobert Soergel, Judith L. Klavans, Douglas W. Oard
2009 Proceedings of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
Our extended model aims to offer a more complete picture of the cognitive processes of sense-making, including the underlying cognitive mechanisms and different types of conceptual changes so that we can  ...  In this paper we extend existing sensemaking models by adding detail on types of conceptual change and cognitive mechanisms taken from theories of cognition and learning.  ...  The processes that participants went through and the cognitive mechanisms that they used thus might be influenced by the quality of the translations.  ...

Lexical concepts, cognitive models and meaning-construction

Vyvyan Evans
2006 Cognitive Linguistics  
I present an account of lexical concepts and the conceptual knowledge structures, cognitive models, with respect to which they are relativised.  ...  Concepts and Cognitive Models, or LCCM Theory.  ...  As cognitive models are necessarily connected to and inherit structure from many others, a lexical concept can potentially be connected to a vast network of conceptual knowledge.  ...

Implementing a concept network model

Sarah H. Solomon, John D. Medaglia, Sharon L. Thompson-Schill
2019 Behavior Research Methods  
Conceptual flexibility is a fundamental attribute of the cognitive and semantic systems, and in this proof of concept we reveal that variations in concept representation and use can be formally understood  ...  We propose that a feature-based network model can be used to capture and predict this flexibility.  ...  The ability of graph-theoretical network science to model a vast range of systems enables us to examine conceptual structure across cognitive, linguistic, and neural levels of analysis.  ...
