I have a request for this group.  When referring to AI, we might want to
consider using the more modern term "CI" or (as we would say in
ActionScript):     (01)

s/CI/AI/;    (02)

Many in the IEEE now consider CI ( Computational Intelligence) as a more
appropriate moniker for AI (ref: http://www.ieee-cis.org/).  The term
"artificial" seems irrelevant as an adjective when describing aspects of a
system while computational infers an important observable aspect.  I've been
a member of the IEEE CI Society for 3 years now and my own interpretation is
CI (as defined by the IEEE) embodies the culmination of knowledge from
previous AI work including Ontology Research, Swarm Grammars (a.k.a "
Adaptive Dynamic Programming/Weighting"), architectural patterns such as the
Blackboard pattern, fuzzy logic, neural Networks,evolutionary learning
systems, autonomous mental development and bioinformatics/engineering. Data
mining from disparate systems of the types listed above is another primary
focus.    (03)

What is notable is that all of these concepts, particularly the latter, seem
to assume a shared conceptualization of a domain, aka ontology.  The old
GIGO philosophy is important yet a neglected (IMO) aspect of a lot of this
research.  Of course, who am I to argue that ontology should be a foundation
discipline of any CI work.    (04)

All of your input is extremely relevant and timely and again, I would like
to extend thanks for this group and their contributions.    (05)
