Concept neighbourhoods in knowledge organisation systems.

Conference Proceeding
Priss, U., & Old, L. J. (2010)
Concept neighbourhoods in knowledge organisation systems. In C. Gnoli, & F. Mazzocchi (Eds.), Paradigms and conceptual systems in knowledge organization
This paper discusses the application of concept neighbourhoods (in the sense of Formal Concept Analysis) to Knowledge Organisation Systems. Examples are provided using Roget’s...

Concept Neighbourhoods in Lexical Databases

Conference Proceeding
Priss, U., & Old, L. J. (2010)
Concept Neighbourhoods in Lexical Databases. In L. Kwuida, & B. Sertkaya (Eds.), Formal Concept Analysis, 283-295. doi:10.1007/978-3-642-11928-6_20
This paper discusses results from an experimental study of concept neighbourhoods in WordNet and Roget’s Thesaurus. The general aim of this research is to determine ways in wh...

An application of formal concept analysis to semantic neural decoding.

Journal Article
Endres, D., Foldiak, P., & Priss, U. (2009)
An application of formal concept analysis to semantic neural decoding. Annals of Mathematics and Artificial Intelligence, 57, 233-248. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10472-010-9196-8
This paper proposes a novel application of Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) to neural decoding: the semantic relationships between the neural representations of large sets of sti...

Revisiting the potentialities of a mechanical thesaurus.

Conference Proceeding
Priss, U., & Old, L. J. (2009)
Revisiting the potentialities of a mechanical thesaurus. In R. Ferre (Ed.), Proceedings of the 7th International Conference on Formal Concept Analysis, ICFCA, 284-298. https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-01815-2_21
This paper revisits the lattice-based thesaurus models which Margaret Masterman used for machine translation in the 1950’s and 60’s. Masterman’s notions are mapped onto modern...

Relation algebra operations on formal contexts.

Conference Proceeding
Priss, U. (2009)
Relation algebra operations on formal contexts. In S. Rudolph, F. Dau, & S. O. Kutznetsov (Eds.), Conceptual Structures: Leveraging Semantic Technologies, (257-269). https://doi.org/10.1007/978-3-642-03079-6_20
This paper discusses the use of relation algebra operations on formal contexts. These operations are a generalisation of some of the context operations that are described in t...

Lattice-based modelling of thesauri.

Report
Priss, U. & Old, L. J. (2007)
Lattice-based modelling of thesauri
This paper revisits ideas about the use of lattices as underlying conceptual structures in information retrieval and machine translation as suggested by researchers in the 195...

FCA interpretation of relation algebra.

Conference Proceeding
Priss, U. (2006)
FCA interpretation of relation algebra. https://doi.org/10.1007/11671404_17
This paper discusses an interpretation of relation algebra and fork algebra with respect to FCA contexts. In this case, "relation algebra" refers to the DeMorgan-Peirce-Schroe...

Linguistic applications of formal concept analysis.

Book Chapter
Priss, U. (2005)
Linguistic applications of formal concept analysis. In B. Ganter, G. Stumme, & R. Wille (Eds.), Formal Concept Analysis, Foundations and Applications, 149-160. Springer-Verlag. https://doi.org/10.1007/11528784_8

Conceptual exploration of semantic mirrors.

Conference Proceeding
Priss, U., & Old, L. J. (2005)
Conceptual exploration of semantic mirrors
The "Semantic Mirrors Method" (Dyvik, 1998) is a means for automatic derivation of thesaurus entries from a word-aligned parallel corpus. The method is based on the constructi...
