This project is a joint effort between NUS and NPS in the field of Cognitive Science Theory. Researchers will develop a computational model of Conceptual Blending in order to evaluate its ability to construct novel and creative scenarios in the maritime security domain.
Conceptual Blending is proposed to be a general theory of cognition and has been shown to be the cognitive operator behind human thinking and creative activities (Fauconnier & Turner, 2002). Pereira (2007) has demonstrated creative creature creations with Conceptual Blending on noun-noun combination while Harrell (2007) has demonstrated creative poem generations. The potential applications of conceptual blending could be extended to include creative scenario generation and compression of diffuse knowledge to assist in gaining global insight.
