Focusing on recent state-of-the-art research in the field, Conceptual Structures in Practice
presents applications of conceptual structures in areas, such as the semantic web, intelligent systems, and natural language processing. It also provides the background material needed to understand how conceptual structures are used in these fields.
This accessible, self-contained book begins by providing a background in formal concept analysis and conceptual graphs. It then describes various software tools for analysis and computation, including the ToscanaJ suite. Written by the founders of the field, the next section discusses the history and future directions of conceptual structures. The final chapters explore prominent application areas in computer science, including text analysis, web semantics, and intelligent systems.
