Hello all!

Linda Smith's work in developmental psychology is quite interesting to ontologists. Her research in the development of whole/part recognition in children is particularly intriguing.

Sowa said:
This study is one of many that show how the semantics of natural
language is grounded in the neural mechanisms of perception and action.

Isn't that what the symbol grounding problem is all about?

When I try to use ontologies to do something useful in a computer a frequently have to overcome the problem of converting data patterns into symbols and symbols into actions. There is still relatively little research in how to bridge this semantic gap, if you considering how important it is.
