Her main research concerns Analogy, Cognitive psychology, Similarity, Linguistics and Cognitive development. Her Analogy research incorporates elements of Transfer of learning, Artificial intelligence, Cognitive science and Information processing. Dedre Gentner combines subjects such as Comprehension, Component and Natural language processing with her study of Artificial intelligence.
Her Cognitive psychology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Object, Social psychology, Causal structure and Negotiation. Her research in Similarity intersects with topics in Experiential learning, Cognitive map, Bootstrapping and Communication. Her study in the fields of Noun, Semantics and Object under the domain of Linguistics overlaps with other disciplines such as Conveyor belt.
Cognitive psychology, Analogy, Cognitive science, Artificial intelligence and Similarity are her primary areas of study. Dedre Gentner has researched Cognitive psychology in several fields, including Cognitive development, Social psychology, Perception, Categorization and Object. Her biological study focuses on Structure mapping engine.
Her Cognitive science study frequently links to adjacent areas such as Concept learning. Her work deals with themes such as Machine learning and Natural language processing, which intersect with Artificial intelligence. Her Similarity research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Similitude, Focus and Set.
Her scientific interests lie mostly in Cognitive psychology, Analogy, Cognitive science, Artificial intelligence and Linguistics. Her research integrates issues of Cognitive development, Object, Relation and Categorization in her study of Cognitive psychology. Her biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Contrast, Nonverbal communication, Salience, Similarity and Set.
The concepts of her Cognitive science study are interwoven with issues in Abstraction, Perception, Gesture and Child development. Her Artificial intelligence research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Machine learning and Natural language processing. Her studies deal with areas such as Control and Comprehension as well as Natural language processing.
Her primary scientific interests are in Cognitive psychology, Analogy, Artificial intelligence, Concept learning and Linguistics. Her Cognitive psychology study combines topics in areas such as Cognitive development, Social psychology, Relation and Spatial cognition. Dedre Gentner interconnects Representation, Context and Cognitive science in the investigation of issues within Analogy.
Her study in the field of Similarity is also linked to topics like Structural alignment. Her studies in Similarity integrate themes in fields like Learning sciences and Focus. Her Natural language processing research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Control and Metaphor.
