The capacity of combinational creativity — when novel ideas are produced through unfamiliar combinations of familiar ideas — is difficult to recreate computationally. In his talk, Dr. Neuhaus will describe an attempt to develop a computationally feasible, cognitively-inspired formal model of concept creation within the framework of the EU project COINVENT. The talk will conclude with a brief presentation of COINVENT software illustrated by means of a medical example.
Fabian Neuhaus, formerly a UB post-doc and NCOR Research Scientist working on medical ontologies, worked as a Researcher from 2007 to 2013 at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Dr. Neuhaus is currently a Research Associate of the COINVENT project at the University of Magdeburg, Germany.
