Compression and decompression in cognition
This paper proposes that decompression is an important and often overlooked component of cognition in all domains where compressive stimuli reduction is a requirement. We support this claim by comparing two compression representations, co-occurrence probabilities and holographic vectors, and two decompression procedures, top-n and Coherencer, on a context generation task from the visual imagination literature. We tentatively conclude that better decompression procedures increase optimality across compression types.
