Interests: formal/philosophical logic; logic and cognitive science; knowledge representation; symbolic AI
Until recently topics solely of philosophy and psychology, conceptualization and semantic knowledge are now core concerns in AI. Questions such as “How do humans form, structure, and represent concepts?” and “How do we interpret data and information from the environment?” are now investigated from the viewpoint of what can be covered by the label “semantic AI,” which is currently undergoing redefinition. This is largely web-centered (the Semantic Web), with ontology engineering and NLP methods at the forefront of research, but new trends in AI also focus on how humans share concepts and on structures like semantic bases. In particular, we anticipate that cognitive robotics will constitute a large piece of the cake, with intensive research (re)focusing on the grounding problem and knowledge structures and systems now from a formal semantic perspective. This Special Issue encourages authors to submit their research outcomes in conceptualization and semantic knowledge, in particular output resulting from multi- and interdisciplinary work recruiting, among other fields, knowledge representation, symbolic AI, cognitive modeling, semantic technologies, etc.
