|In our 1996 book, Mental Leaps, Keith Holyoak and I presented a psychological theory
of how people perform analogical thinking. We argued that retrieval, mapping, and transfer
of analogical information involve 3 constraints: similarity, structure, and purpose. In the past
decade, much has been learned about the neural processes that underlie these constraints.
This talk will offer a computational account of how neural networks compute similarity,
structure, and purpose.
