Below a list of selected, peer reviewed, publications about TCL and its applications (from 2018 to 2021). Back to the home page

TCL (Typicality-based Compositional Logic) is the first ever developed formal (i.e. logic-based) account able to model - with a unique formalism - the problem of both human-like NOUN-NOUN commonsense conceptual combination (i.e. by solving the so-called PET FISH problem, also known as guppy effect) as well as the problem known as conceptual blending (including hierarchical and iterated blending). This logic integrates a non monotonic description logic of typicality, the probabilistic semantics called DISPONTE and the HEAD-MODIFIER heuristics (coming from cognitive semantics). TCL has been applied to a number of applications ranging from cognitive modelling (e.g. pet-fish problem, the conjunction fallacy and goal-reasoning heuristics) to computational creativity and multimedia and emotion-oriented recommendations.
