Shekar, B and Murty, Narasimha M and Krishna, G (1990) The function-acquisition paradigm in a knowledge-based concept-synthesis environment. In: Algorithmic Learning Theory, 8-10 Oct. 1990, Tokyo, Japan, pp. 97-108.Full text not available from this repository.
The authors consider a knowledge-based approach to concept-synthesis. The notion of concept is examined. Three different approaches to the synthesis of knowledge-based concepts are outlined. One of the approaches is studied in detail. This leads to a paradigm for concept synthesis, namely function-acquisition. Comparison between two concept trees gives rise to two types of isomorphism, the S-isomorphism and the F-isomorphism. These are used in stipulating the conditions under which function-acquisition is possible. An example is presented. The role of analogical reasoning in arriving at suitable instantiations for concepts that satisfy the paradigm is highlighted.
