Artificial intelligence : an introduction by Alan Garnham( Book )

27 editions published between 1987 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 464 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intended to be particularly suitable for psychology students, this new textbook provides a stimulating introduction to artificial intelligence (AI)- the science of thinking machines. After a general introduction to AI-its history, its tools and research methods, and its relation to psychology-Alan Garnham gives an account of AI research in five major areas: knowledge representation, vision, thinking and reasoning, language, and learning. He then describes the more important applications of AI and discusses the broader philosophical issues raised by the possibility of thinking machines. In a final chapter he speculates about future research in AI, and more generally in cognitive science. The book will also be useful background reading for courses on vision, thinking and reasoning, language and learning."--Jacket

Mental models in cognitive science : essays in honour of Phil Johnson-Laird by Alan Garnham( Book )

18 editions published between 1996 and 2015 in English and held by 320 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the most influential developments in the cognitive sciences in the last 20 years is Phil Johnson-Laird's theory of mental models. This theory aims to provide a detailed account of both reasoning and inference, on the one hand, and language processing on the other. Mental models theory can therefore be regarded as a step toward the much-sought-after unified theory of cognition." "This book, to be published on the occasion of Phil Johnson-Laird's sixtieth birthday, provides an overview of the current state of mental models research. It also reflects Phil's influence on the development of cognitive science at a more personal level. The authors include some of Phil's most distinguished collaborators and the majority of his former graduate students, many of whom are now eminent psychologists in their own right. The book contains contributions from North America, Britain, and the rest of Europe, and covers all the main strands of mental models theory."--Jacket
Mental models and the interpretation of anaphora by Alan Garnham( Book )

23 editions published between 2000 and 2015 in English and held by 310 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The interpretation of anaphora - how we interpret expressions such as definite pronouns ("he", "she", "it") and verbal elliptical phrases (such as "did so, too") in the course of ordinary converstaion or reading - is an important aspect of language comprehension. In this book the author examines the research and evidence on anaphor interpretation within the context of the mental models theory of comprehension, arguing that the notion of a mental model is essential to the detailed description of the processes of anaphor resolution. The general philosophy of the mental models approach and the nature of mental models themselves and their role in language processing is discussed, followed by a review of methodological issues that bear on the interpretation of psychological research findings. Against this background, the author's own research on areas such as deep and surface anaphora, reference into anaphoric islands, the role of implicit causality in anaphor resolution and the use of pronouns to refer to characters introduced by stereotyped role names is presented. -- from back cover
Mental models as representations of discourse and text by Alan Garnham( Book )

18 editions published between 1981 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Language, Cognition and Gender by Sabine Sczesny( )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gender inequality remains an issue of high relevance, and controversy, in society. Previous research shows that language contributes to gender inequality in various ways: Gender-related information is transmitted through formal and semantic features of language, such as the grammatical category of gender, through gender-related connotations of role names (e.g., manager, secretary), and through customs of denoting social groups with derogatory vs. neutral names. Both as a formal system and as a means of communication, language passively reflects culture-specific social conditions. In active use it can also be used to express and, potentially, perpetuate those conditions. The questions addressed in the contributions to this Frontiers Special Topic include:, how languages shape the cognitive representations of gender, how features of languages correspond with gender equality in different societies, how language contributes to social behaviour towards the sexes, how gender equality can be promoted through strategies for gender-fair language use These questions are explored both developmentally (across the life span from childhood to old age) and in adults. The contributions present work conducted across a wide range of languages, including some studies that make cross-linguistic comparisons. Among the contributors are both cognitive and social psychologists and linguists, all with an excellent research standing. The studies employ a wide range of empirical methods: from surveys to electro-physiology. The papers in the Special Topic present a wide range of complimentary studies, which will make a substantial contribution to understanding in this important area
Discourse representation and text processing( Book )

6 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Language and Cognitive Processes is an international journal which publishes theoretical and experimental research into the mental processes and representations involved in language use. The psychological study of language has attracted increasing interest over the past three decades, and Language and Cognitive Processes provides a common focus for this enterprise. It is a journal which emphasises the importance of an interdisciplinary approach to the study of language. Apart from research in experimental and developmental psychology, Language and Cognitive Processes publishes work derived from linguistics, philosophy, computer science and Artificial Intelligence."--BOOK JACKET
