Integration of “rules” and “similarity” in a framework of information compression by multiple alignment, unification, and search

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28 (1):36-37 (2005)
The Simplicity and Power (SP) theory (Wolff 2003a) provides support for Pothos's proposals by illustrating how the effect of “rules” and “similarity” may be achieved within an integrated model that makes no explicit provision for either concept. The theory is described here in outline with simple examples to show how rules and similarity can emerge as properties of the system in learning, reasoning, categorization, and the parsing of language.
