Application of the semantic network ConceptNet
MetadataShow full item record
This report introduces a way to use the semantic network ConceptNet to create a tool to aid in a writer’s creative process. ConceptNet is a project that maps concepts and their relationship to each other. The goal is to mimic our own creative search process of semantic knowledge. To achieve this we describe and implement two core components which are the search and the ranker. We show that these two components by themselves can provide useful semantic insight by identifying relationships between concepts and their relevancy even on seemingly unrelated concepts. We also present some more complex and practical application of these two components for future work.
