What Can FCA Do for Artificial Intelligence?
The preceding editions of the FCA4AI Workshop showed that many researchers working in Artificial Intelligence are indeed interested by a powerful method for classification and data mining such as Formal Concept Analysis. Again, we have the chance to organize a new edition of the workshop co-located with the IJCAI 2021 Conference.
Formal Concept Analysis (FCA) is a mathematically well-founded theory aimed at data analysis and classification. FCA allows one to build a concept lattice and a system of dependencies (implications) which can be used for many AI needs, e.g. knowledge processing, knowledge discovery, knowledge representation and reasoning, ontology engineering as well as information retrieval, recommendation, social network analysis and text processing. Thus, there are many "natural links'' between FCA and AI.
