Sub-symbolic Re-representation to Facilitate Learning Transfer

Dan Ventura

We consider the issue of knowledge (re-)representation in the context of learning transfer and present a sub-symbolic approach for effecting such transfer. Given a set of data, manifold learning is used to automatically organize the data into one or more representational transformations, which are then learned with a set of neural networks. The result is a set of neural filters that can be applied to new data as re-representation operators. Encouraging preliminary empirical results elucidate the approach and demonstrate its feasibility, suggesting possible implications for the broader field of creativity.
