A matter/subject of interest In a parallel discipline
Upcoming seminar at the CEU Cognitive Development Center: A talk by Andras Lorincz (Informatics, ELTE) on Thursday, 25 February 2010 Title: Goal Oriented Intelligence: A Workable Hypothesis?
In cognitive science, one starts from the assumption that cognitive
functions are, or at least can be modeled by computations. Then, we
need a pragmatic definition for intelligence that lends itself into a
workable algorithm. We start from the hypothesis that basically all
facets of intelligence are related to goal oriented behavior. Goal
oriented behavior, however, can be the result of evolution and may not
be intelligent per se. On the other hand, intelligence can manifest
itself through communication. We consider problem types of different
complexities and (i) establish the category of problems that are worth
to communicate, (ii) give a definition for intelligence based on this
special category, and (iii) identify another computational problem
type, which is necessary for communication and which is highly
problematic for present day machine learning algorithms.
Communication requires agreements about symbol meaning associations.
We show that such agreements are very hard without a mind model, where
mind simply means a predictive model of the communicating partner and
partial access (observation) to her actual internal rewards (emotions).
We will present two examples to illustrate matters. Our project called
“Innovation Engine in BlogSpace” intends to develop information
seeking conversational agents that could interfere with people in
BlogSpace. The other example is about “Testing and communicating with
severely handicapped, non-speaking, but speech understanding
children”, where the goal is to estimate the zone of proximal
development and to optimize training materials. Very recent results on
collaborative filtering made recommendation systems highly efficient
provided that databases are available. Collection of the data without
endangering privacy has become feasible.
