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
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
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)
