Many services need to understand what a user means with a word. For example, on-demand map services must predict which content is requested. We show a computational model in which map content is selected using sentences which are uttered in the context of the map request and which stand for the context of the request.
The model is based on a proposal by Aerts et al. to apply a quantum-mechanical framework to model human concepts and their interactions. It is well known that human use of contexts and their interaction demonstrates effects which cannot be modeled with simple logic and probability.
The paper shows how this model is applied to a small problem: generating a map for a boat trip on the canals of southern France, where friends traveling by car will join us for an evening. Different parts of the task-describing sentence are taken as context, and are applied to restrict the desired map content. The result is used to select a Web Feature Server and the desired features.
The paper shows the applicability of the formalism and ends with suggestions for further work on achieving practical solutions.
