Reasoning with Mental and External Diagrams: Computational Modeling and Spatial Assistance
Papers from the AAAI Spring Symposium
Thomas Barkowsky, Christian Freksa, Mary Hegarty, and Ric Lowe, Cochairs
The role of diagrammatic representations in reasoning processes has been investigated from three different interdisciplinary perspectives: from computational modeling, from spatial assistance, and with respect to the interplay of cognitive processes and external diagrams. All three fields have different foci of interest; however, the fields are closely related to each other.
