CogInfoCom Channels: Perceptual Unification of Representation and Meaning
Based on the preliminaries of the previous chapter, this chapter provides a holistic view of CogInfoCom channels that unifies syntactic and semantic aspects. CogInfoCom channels are defined as a structured unification of icons and messages with perceptual interpretations of meaning. This definition uncovers previously overlooked features of the concept of “modality”. It is demonstrated in the chapter that the parametric structure behind CogInfoCom channels can be represented in a tensor-algebraic form that is canonical and interpretable. It is argued that the use of this representation can be advantageous in that it allows researchers working on similar problems to share and reproduce each others’ results. Some of the tools for working with CogInfoCom channels developed in later chapters are also based on this representation.
