Conceptual spaces as a framework for knowledge representation

Gärdenfors, Peter LU (2004) In Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27(3). p.403-403
Abstract
I focus on the distinction between sensation and perception. Perceptions contain additional information that is useful for interpreting sensations. Following Grush, I propose that emulators can be seen as containing (or creating) hidden variables that generate perceptions from sensations. Such hidden variables could be used to explain further cognitive phenomena, for example, causal reasoning.
