|Inferences: when we move from premises to conclusions we carry out inferences. _____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Inferences/Gärdenfors: if we use conceptual spaces (geometrically structured conceptual spaces), we only need the description of the domain structures instead of inferences.
However, other programming methods are needed than what exists in OWL and similar languages.
Next, we need information about how the space is divided into terms. (> Voronoi tessellation,> prototypes). The computation then involves vectors.
Inferences: are then built on similarities (neighborhood in space), rather than on search trees in a rule-based symbolic approach._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
