Abstract

This article presents a conceptual framework for urban dialogue systems to let them emulate human analogical reasoning by using cognitive computing and particularly soft computing. Since creating analogies is crucial for humans to learn unknown concepts, this article proposes an approach of urban applications to human cognition by introducing analogical reasoning as a sound component of their fuzzy reasoning process. Pursuing an approach derived from (transdisciplinary) design science research, two experiments were conducted to reinforce the theoretical foundation.
