Concepts: on the need of an integrated perspective in AI
The study of concept representation concerns different research areas, such as Philosophy, Cognitive Science and Artificial Intelligence. In this talk, by arguing against the anti-cognitivist approach to AI, I will suggest that the insights coming from the philosophical and psychological debate about concepts can be beneficial for the realization of artificial systems showing some simple forms of "cognitive" abilities. A case study in the area of Question Answering will be provided.
