Finding semantic similarity in a biological domain: A human-centered approach Conference Paper uri icon


  • A behavioral study investigated how college students judge similarity between cell pictures. The study indicates that there is a strong tendency to rely on class-inclusion relations in judgments of similarity. This means that biological concepts are likely to be organized and conceptualized with respect to class-inclusion relations even for non-experts.
