Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Recent work in concept formation addresses a number of issues important not only to cognitive scientists and AI researchers, but also to data analysts involved in clustering, philosophers concerned with the nature and origin of concepts, and any researcher dealing with issues of similarity, memory organization, and problem solving. Chapters from the perspectives of cognitive psychology and machine learning are intermingled to highlight the commonality of their research agendas. Annotation c.
