An Invitation to Knowledge Space Theory
It has been mentioned on many occasions that Formal Concept Analysis and KST, the theory of Knowledge Spaces, introduced by J.-P. Doignon and J.-C. Falmagne, are closely related in theory, but rather different in practice. It was suggested that the FCA community should learn from and contribute to KST. In a recent workshop held at Graz University of Technology, researchers from both areas started to combine their views and tried to find a common language. This article is a partial result of their effort. It invites FCA researchers to understand some ideas of KST by presenting them in the language of formal contexts and formal concepts.
This article is a partial result of an effort which has been facilitated by a workshop at Graz University of Technology. We would like to thank Dietrich Albert for hosting this workshop. It has been partly funded by the European Commission (EC) (7th Framework Programme contract no. 619762, LEA’s BOX).
