Attribute Exploration - Software Needed

ICFCA 2019 is happy to announce a tutorial on relational data in Formal Concept Analysis.


Attribute Exploration was introduced some 35 years ago, and we are still using the algorithms introduced then. Meanwhile, the theory has made considerable progress and it seems possible to improve the method’s user friendlyness. A particular challenge is to establish conceptual exploration as a web service, ideally a co-operative one. All that will require new and more sophisticated, carefully designed software.

In this tutorial we plan to go through several exploration instances. The aim is to better understand what is needed for usability and which contributions are required.
