Structure-Mapping Engine, Version 4
These supplemental materials are for
Forbus, K., Ferguson, R., Lovett, A., & Gentner, D. Extending SME to Handle Large-Scale Cognitive Modeling. Cognitive Science.
They consist of the following parts:
- The complexity analysis of SME v4
- Instructions for setting up and using SME v4
- SME v4 source code
- Corpus of examples from the experiments described in the paper
- Spreadsheets used in the analyses summarized in the tables of the article: Statistics of descriptions, Analysis of runtimes Analysis of ubiquitous predicates
As the instructions note, running SME from source requires choosing and installing a Common Lisp implementation. We use Franz, Inc.'s Allegro Common Lisp, but others will work too.
Alternately, if your goal is to experiment with SME (and our MAC/FAC model of analogical retrieval), or integrate it with some system not written in Common Lisp, you might wish to investigate Case Mapper which runs under Windows, Linux, and Mac OS (via Oracle's free virtual box emulator).
