Semantics Computation: A Problem Solving Perspective

Yucong Duan

Abstract—Focusing on phenomena of the existence of multiple semantics for a single concept or expression, we investigated fundamental semantics bundled to concepts of type(TYPE) and instance (INS) to reveal relationships among semantics of problem expressions and expected answers. Semantics of concepts of unlimited and completeness are identified as fundamental classification characteristics for clarifying/formalizing semantics of expressions towards bridging semantics between problems and answers. An approach of semantic computation from problem solving perspectives is proposed with demonstrative cases on previously confusing or misleading issues.

Index Terms—Semantics, Knowledge management, Conceptual modeling, Expression.
