Please Note that this represents some early thinking of mine on Context - I think most of this is wrong!  Please see subsequent papers for a more considered view at: http://bruce.edmonds.name/context

However, as a matter of record this paper is still available.


The aim of this paper is to describe a simple extension of semantic nets. In this formulation we have labelled nodes with directed arcs, but the directed arcs can lead to other arcs as well as nodes. In this model contexts are not differentiated as special objects, but rather that some nodes to a greater or lesser extent have roles as encoders of contextual information. It is not claimed that this is a model of any type of context found in human activity.
