A Geometry of Thought

Source: InfoProc blogspot, Dec 2016

I can share what I have been thinking about lately. In Thought vectors and the dimensionality of the space of concepts (a post from last week) I discussed the dimensionality of the space of concepts (primitives) used in human language (or equivalently, in human thought). There are various lines of reasoning that lead to the conclusion that this space has only ~1000 dimensions, and has some qualities similar to an actual vector space. 
an automated method to extract an abstract representation of human thought from samples of ordinary language. This abstract representation will allow machines to improve dramatically in their ability to process language, dealing appropriately with semantics (i.e., meaning), which is represented geometrically.
