Augmenting Conceptualization by Visual Knowledge Organization
Recent developments within cognitive and computer supported conceptualization have helped us to see why externalizing conceptual knowledge in visual forms has proved to be a much deeper problem than it was assumed to be in the pioneering era of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Visualization has played a role in both recognizing the importance of sub-symbolic cognitive structures in explaining the difficulties of simulating our visual capacities, and in the emergence of graphical Knowledge Organization (KO) tools of Human and Computer Interactions (HCI). Among the KO tools that support memory recall, concept organization or design, and problem solving, we not only find tables, maps and diagrams but first of all graph based combinations of textual and non-textual symbolic structures.
