Conceptual graphs for semantics and knowledge processing
by J. Fargues, M.-C. Landau, A. Dugourd, L. Catach
This paper discusses the representational and algorithmic power of the conceptual graph model for natural language semantics and knowledge processing. Also described is a Prolog-like resolution method for conceptual graphs, which allows one to perform deduction on very large semantic domains. The interpreter that we have developed is similar to a Prolog interpreter in which the terms are any conceptual graphs and in which the unification algorithm is replaced by a specialized algorithm for conceptual graphs.
