Systematic Formulation and Computation of Subjective Spatiotemporal Knowledge Based on Mental Image Directed Semantic Theory: Toward a Formal System for Natural Intelligence

Masao Yokota

Abstract

The author has been challenging to model natural intelligence as a formal system based on his original semantic theory “Mental Image Directed Semantic Theory (MIDST)”. As the first step for this purpose, this paper presents a brief sketch of the attempt on systematic representation and computation of subjective spatiotemporal knowledge in natural language based on certain hypotheses of mental image in human.
