Structure-Mapping Engine, Version 4

These supplemental materials are for

Forbus, K., Ferguson, R., Lovett, A., & Gentner, D. Extending SME to Handle Large-Scale Cognitive Modeling. Cognitive Science.

As the instructions note, running SME from source requires choosing and installing a Common Lisp implementation. We use Franz, Inc.'s Allegro Common Lisp, but others will work too.

Alternately, if your goal is to experiment with SME (and our MAC/FAC model of analogical retrieval), or integrate it with some system not written in Common Lisp, you might wish to investigate Case Mapper which runs under Windows, Linux, and Mac OS (via Oracle's free virtual box emulator).
