Towards quantum-based DB+IR processing based on the principle of polyrepresentationZellhöfer, David; Frommholz, Ingo; Schmitt, Ingo; Lalmas, Mounia; Van Rijsbergen, Keith; Brandenburg University of Technology, Cottbus, Germany; University of Glasgow; Yahoo! Research, Spain (Springer, 2011)The cognitively motivated principle of polyrepresentation still lacks a theoretical foundation in IR. In this work, we discuss two competing polyrepresentation frameworks that are based on quantum theory. Both approaches support different aspects of polyrepresentation, where one is focused on the geometric properties of quantum theory while the other has a strong logical basis. We compare both approaches and outline how they can be combined to express further aspects of polyrepresentation.
