Abstract:
The notion of a conceptual matching task is introduced as a model for a number of important practical problems in which systematically structured entities are paired on the basis of selected significant characteristics of their structures. The operation of our system centers on an active memory of limited size which serves as the site of conceptual integration, and which is distinguished from the archival memory by the availability of descriptive access mechanisms for manipulating its contents. The use of these descriptive mechanisms in elaborating and specializing high-level guiding frameworks as required in both the descriptive and matching subtasks, is illustrated.
